As a trauma specialist, I utilize person-centered, narrative and expressive art therapies to support trauma survivors of all kinds, with an emphasis on people who have been impacted by sexual assault, intimate partner violence and hate-motivated violence.
During times of struggle, you have an absolute right to support from an attentive, warm, trustworthy witness - someone who believes in your strength and brilliance when you can no longer see it, and who stands by your side as you emerge as the architect of your own healing. My work and my passion is to be that witness. I entered into the field of mental health to uplift the experiences of those who often struggle to find responsive and attuned care. As a queer, biracial, Latinx therapist and advocate, I am wholly dedicated to opening a space with you through which you can experience repair, discovery, growth and transformation.

My style as a psychotherapist is warm, person-centered and interactive.
My focus is on assisting those clients with issues they need greater support on; chronic illness, chronic pain and high sensitivity. The misunderstood nature of health issues such as fibromyalgia, endometriosis and headaches, can lead to disruption in client's lives and relationships. Therapeutic goals may be to improve coping and acceptance. Highly Sensitive Persons (HSP) are also clients who need support. HSPs experience the world with a heightened perspective, often finding interactions and sensory stimulation difficult. Navigating such a world often requires more support and validation, which psychotherapy can provide.

I use a combination of humanistic/person-centered practices, depth psychology, subjective and Gestalt dream work, family systems (Gottman), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy CBT, family constellations, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT), and Imago Therapy, among other things.
Currently taking new clients on Mondays. As a depth psychotherapist, one of the things I do is help my clients know their unknown issues. I do this by creating a safe therapeutic environment in which to explore and bring repair to the past injuries and traumas holding my clients back from experiencing life and relationships in a full and meaningful way. I like to look at my client's dreams, artwork, and daily life experiences, to bring light and insight to blockages and barriers to their full experience and enjoyment of life. Such blockages can be past trauma, incorrect embedded beliefs, and ingrained thought patterns and habits.

I make it a priority to help clients with buried feelings who have trouble speaking on their emotions. Communicating emotionally is extremely important to promote well-rounded and mature adults.

I work with a person-centered and strength-based lens.
Things that may have felt difficult prior to the pandemic carry a very different load now, as we learn to navigate life with Covid. While the idea of therapy may have felt radical before, it can now offer us a roadmap to developing greater internal strength to steer through the uncertainty. It is deep within our unconscious that we meet our true selves and can then begin the profound work of developing mechanisms for the lives we are seeking. I view it as a great privilege to bear witness to the strength that emerges from the courage of confronting the vulnerability of our own psychology.
