About My Clients

I see clients with a large range of presenting issue and identities. The connecting factor for many of my clients is their courage to want to create meaningful change in their lives. Since I provide therapy in Spanish, a large facet of my clients are bilingual and/or bicultural

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed professional counselor who has training with anxiety, depression, trauma, LGBTQ+, and family systems. I have experience working with LGBTQ+ and non-monogamous clients and work from an affirmative approach to ensure that clients feel safe. Due to training providing therapy in Spanish, I have experience working with various issues facing the Latinx population. I value the exploration of gender, race, culture, sexuality, and other identities that play a role in developing identity. Working from an attachment and systemic lens, I recognize the value of exploring your relationships while considering the larger systems that impact our day-to-day lives. In addition, I also incorporate Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) techniques to assist clients to become more attuned to their emotional experience to better understand their direction and needs.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Many of my identities (Latinx, queer, immigrant) played a large role in ensuring that clients have space where they can explore and recognize their own identities without feeling "othered". I also recognize my privilege identities (educated, cisgender, hetero-passing, abled-bodied) and understand that with such identities comes a level of responsibility that I am in constant pursuit.
