We travel various paths throughout our lives, weaving experiences together writing the story of who we are. Experiences may cause us to question the path, and suddenly our story no longer reflects the life we intended to live. At these times of questioning, we must explore how to proceed. If you find yourself looking for someone to talk with, to think through where life has led you, allow me to walk with you for a while on your journey. What meridian lines do you need to guide you to your destination? Let’s work together to find how your story shifted from your intended path, and let’s find how your journey continues.
My approaches to counseling center around Narrative and Solution-Focused frameworks. Areas of expertise: Adjustment Issues, Adolescents, Anxiety, Bereavement, Couples, Crisis Intervention, Education, Foster Care, Gender Identity, Grief, Life Transitions, LGBTQ, Self-Esteem, Sexual Abuse, Sexual Assault, and Trauma
I am a Latina woman of color, trained in trauma-informed care. I am gender-informed, and I work to disrupt the oppressive systems present in mental health work through cultural responsiveness and the use of anti-racist frameworks. All are welcome in this space. Services are available in English and Spanish. Servicios son disponibles en inglés y en español.
