About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    Straightforward, warm, compassionate, gentle yet firm, and understanding the pain points of my clients.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    I lean towards being a no bullshit yet gentle therapist. I lean towards mindfulness approach, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Approach. Provide skills practice between sessions. I believe therapy occurs in everyday situations.

  • Together, we will:

    Discover the pain points that have led to feelings of being stuck or feeling like you don't belong. We will work towards self acceptance through self reflection, awareness, and practicing the skills learned in session while in the real world.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    Young professionals that are first generation college students/graduates and/or children of immigrants that are dealing with depression, anxiety, dependent relationship dynamics, compassion fatigue and burnout, and stress. Seekers of balance.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I am a wounded healer. I wished to be a soft place to land for black, indigenous, latinx, and people of color. De-stigmatizing what therapy means.

  • More about me and my practice:

    Come as you are and with a commitment to be in process and in growth- “Quisieron enterrarnos, pero no sabían que éramos semillas”. This is the place where you can grow and belong.
