About

I am an advocate for working with all marginalized populations. As a minority, I empathize with experiences related to micro-aggressions, discrimination, intergenerational trauma, and other oppressive experiences. I enjoy helping clients who are aware there's a need for change, and I am open to working towards goals that may be unclear at first. I thoroughly believe that we are all the experts of our own lives and only we can recognize the struggles we’ve faced.
I operate from a Person-Centered approach, which means I believe the person sitting across from me in session is someone who is capable of self-directed growth. With empathy, unconditional-positive regard, and authenticity, I trust my clients are able to develop a better sense of self-worth, trust in themselves, and willingness to continue exploring life.
Therapy can look very different for each person, and as someone who has received therapy, I understand how intimidating it can be to initiate treatment. As a therapist now, I strive to create a comforting environment for my clients because when you come to therapy, you are allowing yourself a safe space to heal from trauma.
Abogo por trabajar con todas las poblaciones marginadas. Como minoría, me identifico con experiencias relacionadas con microagresiones, discriminación, trauma intergeneracional y otras experiencias opresivas. Disfruto ayudar a los clientes que estan conscientes que necesitan un un cambio y estoy disupuesta a trabajar hacia metaas que puedan no ser tan claras al principio. Creo firmemente que todos somos expertos de nuestras propias vidas y que solo nosotros podemos reconocer las luchas que hemos enfrentado.
Opero desde un enfoque centrado en la persona, lo que significa que creo que la persona sentada frente a mí en la sesión es alguien que es capaz de un crecimiento autodirigido. Con empatía, consideración positiva incondicional y autenticidad, confío en que mis clientes puedan desarrollar un mejor sentido de autoestima, confianza en sí mismos y voluntad.
La terapia puede verse muy diferente para cada persona, y como alguien que ha recibido terapia, entiendo lo intimidante que puede ser iniciar un tratamiento. Como terapeuta ahora, me esfuerzo por crear un ambiente reconfortante para mis clientes porque cuando vienes a terapia, te estás permitiendo un espacio seguro para procesar y repurarte de trauma.
