I have extensive experience in treating many mental health disorders and emotional problems that includes, but is not limited to trauma, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ issues, family as well as every day stressors.
Have you been feeling like something is off lately? Perhaps the world has suddenly become more difficult to manage. We are living in a day and age where there are too many uncertainties and it is increasing our anxiety and making us more depressed. For some, anger has becoming increasingly prevalent and has been causing significant problems in our relationships, both professional and personal. It can seem like it is impossible to navigate, but the great news is there is hope! Can you imagine what it would feel like to hit a life stressor and be able to pause, think, reframe then react? Change is possible and you deserve support

I am latinx and queer , and my pronouns are she/they/ella/elle.
Living in the moment, creating visions and transitioning, these are parts of me moving forward into private practice. This might also be the reason you are exploring connecting with a therapist. Creating space, occupying it- physically, mentally, and emotionally. These are not easy practices, let's explore what you are looking for in a therapist. My practice is grounded in values within transfeminism, abolition work and decolonization. It's important for me to hold space for and bear witness to you exploring your own experiences.

I have a passion for working with members of the LGBTQ community, survivors of trauma, and I also have a special certification in treating individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse disorders.
I believe that a good therapist doesn't "fix" you, because no one really needs "fixing." My goal is to create a supportive environment to help you express yourself and learn the skills necessary to handle whatever life might throw your way. Whether you're experiencing depression, anxiety, or are just going through a rough time, there are a variety of strategies we can use to get you back to enjoying life. In my sessions, I like to utilize cognitive behavioral techniques to help you feel more confident in your ability to handle life's stressors.

Are you living with the painful consequences of bad decisions and want more joy, ease, and fulfillment?

Do you want to experience your emotions as supporting your richer more satisfying life? Are you feeling lonely and isolated, like no one gets you or even wants to?

I am white, queer , non-binary/ trans and social justice oriented.
Does this sound like your internal dialogue?: “What is wrong with me? Why can’t I just do better, be better? Will I always feel this broken?” What if the answer is that there is NOTHING wrong with you. What if you were to find out that you are fundamentally, at your core, a deeply good and capable human. What if love and acceptance for self and others were your status quo? We will explore aspects of yourself that may be difficult to love and accept, to help you better understand why you are repeating patterns that are harming you or the people around you, and to find a place where you can safely express all of who you are.
