About My Clients

My clients face various challenges in their personal and professional lives, including anxiety, impostor syndrome, relationship concerns, trauma, and an unclear sense of self. Many are navigating what it means to be a person of color or have values or goals that differ from their immigrant parents. If requested, I enjoy incorporating geek culture (e.g. sci-fi/fantasy, gaming, comics) into my work given that our favorite characters or heroes often represent what we value or strive to embody.

My Background and Approach

I’m a goal-oriented therapist who can help you understand how a problem developed, what’s keeping you stuck, and — most importantly — provide you with new strategies and perspectives for achieving your goals. We’ll work together to draw on your existing strengths while we address concerns getting in the way of having a fulfilling life. Given how difficult it can be to break patterns in our relationships or in our lives, I also value self-compassion as a framework for motivating ourselves to achieve personal growth through love and kindness rather than harshness or fear. I’m equal parts collaborator, guide, and teacher for your journey.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am part of Stella Nova Psychology Inc., a feminist group practice located in downtown SF. I'm a 2nd generation Latina who has enjoyed learning about different cultures and customs while living in various cities across the U.S. I also love the narrative of the hero's journey whether in mythology, TV/movies, or comic books, as it relates to our own journeys of challenge and triumph. I believe in the importance of challenging the status quo in our own lives and in our society in order to empower the voices of oppressed or under-represented individuals. I provide space for exploring how your intersecting identities have shaped you as a person. I value cultural humility and strive to be an ally for various communities, including people of color and LGBTQIA+ individuals.
