My experience includes working in substance use treatment, working with those with various mental health diagnosis’ including anxiety, depression, bipolar, personality disorders, and trauma.
My purpose as a therapist is to inspire individuals to discover their own true power by identifying patterns which may be holding them back from who they truly are. I believe my role as a therapist is to guide people toward finding their own inner power and strength, listen to their own inner knowing and find their own healing. Therapeutic modalities I utilize include depth work, internal family systems (parts work/inner child work) and family of origin, positive psychology, self-efficacy and self-empowerment perspective also known as feminist theory. Above all, I utilize a spiritual and holistic approach.

I have published research in the areas of anxiety disorders, anger/aggression, risk-taking, and substance use.
Every person encounters challenges and endures hardships throughout their lives. Although we share this fundamentally human experience, no one person’s journey is exactly the same. Given the complexity inherent in every story, therapeutic treatment should be tailored to meet each individual’s needs. My approach is open-minded, creative, and compassionate. I believe that skillful therapy requires an empirically grounded yet flexible and practical process. Effective treatment stems from a strong therapeutic relationship with a clear understanding of where we are heading and how we are going to get there.

I specialize in the treatment of what are often interconnected problems (mood and anxiety disorders, chronic pain, and trauma), as well as the treatment of behaviors that can develop in response, such as substance use (in an effort to self-medicate). I believe we all do the best we can to cope with pain, using whatever skills we have available. And yet sometimes our best efforts to avoid suffering can serve to keep us stuck retreading the same paths. Step by step, let's venture forward in our work together, letting suffering subside as we uncover meaning, learning to live more full and valued lives.

I have extensive experience working with adults and adolescents dealing with anxiety, moods, blocked creativity, conflict, relationship, substance use and stage of life issues.
Therapy is a commitment one makes to oneself. It is a unique and creative process dedicated to self reflection and self discovery. Together we can explore a wide range of issues, chronic patterns, and challenging life events. We will listen to symptoms as messengers - expressing something of the greater self that needs to be understood and attended to. The goal is to relieve emotional distress and suffering; to make space for your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and to gain greater understanding about your inner workings, your relationship to yourself and others, and how you want to live into your life.

I have over six years of experience working with individuals across the lifespan, couples, & families with specialized training in psychoanalysis, trauma, DBT & substance use problems.
I believe that we all carry vast wisdom within us; I also believe that suffering often arises from our difficulty listening to our own wisdom & from the ways we learn to cope (isolation, blame, anger, busy-ness, drug/alcohol-related problems, hopelessness). We also face incredible hardship & pain (e.g., the loss of a loved one, a traumatic event) that dramatically alter our lives & perspectives & shake our ability to trust or feel safe. I honor the courage it takes to come to therapy & prioritize building a relationship based on trust & safety, essential for us to collaboratively explore beliefs, patterns, & reactions with openness

My experience is with individuals and groups who are working through challenges to include: trauma, adversity & resilience, attachment & relationships, gender & identity, systemic oppression, substance use, phobias, anxiety, depression, existential dilemmas & spiritual formation, racial & ethnic identity exploration, exploring ethical non-monogamy.
I'm a trans, queer, Mexican-American therapist who works from an attuned, responsive, and relationship oriented approach. As all of us have a tendency to get lost in a narrative or storyline, I invite clients to slow down with me and get intimate with their direct experience—the raging emotions in the body, the coming and going of thoughts, the feeling of shaky vulnerability, the rage, the loneliness—honoring it all and creating a safe holding space for these lost emotions, perhaps for the first time ever. In addition to psychotherapy, I offer end-of-life support, and coaching.
