As the full human that you are, you are the only expert in your story. I offer my knowledge and empathetic ear towards healing. I believe healing is rooted in our interconnectedness to ourselves, other humans and nature. Connecting to all of our parts within a therapeutic space can lead us to explore acceptance, vulnerability, and curiosity for our parts. I believe healthy relationships hold the potential to heal and liberate us.
As a Queer immigrant Latina, my personal journey continuously includes dismantling systems of oppression and recognizing the interconnectedness of personal struggles of these systems. I strive to explore your intersecting identities within yourself and your relationships and I am dedicated to working collaboratively with clients to navigate their paths towards empowerment, self-empathy, and resilience. As a Couple and Family Therapist, individuals in relationships long to feel loved, and yet feel so lonely and stuck at the same time. I use emotional vulnerability to guide my clients to soothe one another, transform the self, and be responsive towards one another.
