About

Whether you're in or starting college or graduate school, starting a new career, or simply navigating your professional identity, you may be thinking, "Do I even belong here? Am I not good enough?" Life transitions coupled with imposter syndrome may bring up anxiety, depressive thoughts, or even traumatic stress. Digging deep into the origins of imposter syndrome may uncover wounds from intergenerational trauma, childhood trauma, or environmental triggers (i.e. systemic oppression). Together, we will understand the negative behaviors developed over time, overcome the past, and identify solutions to live life authentically.
I am passionate about empowering First-Generation Latinas/WOC college/graduate students and professionals. My areas of specialty include trauma (e.g. racial/ intergenerational trauma, early childhood trauma, complex trauma in immigrant populations), inner child work, anxiety, depression, stress, professional identity related issues, and imposter syndrome.
As a daughter of hard working class immigrants and as a First-Gen college graduate/professional from South Los Angeles, I not only empathize with my clients but I am also committed to decolonizing therapy. If you're a First-Gen WOC who is ready to heal from generational wounds or improve your overall wellbeing, I invite you to schedule a free consultation!
