Healing... doesn't mean the damage existed... it means that the damage no longer controls our lives. -Bessel van der Kolk

About My Clients

Immigrants, students, activists, artists, people of color, and the queer & trans-Latinx community are the heart of my practice. I have experience working with diverse communities of color, the immigrant experience, the process of acculturation, and generational trauma, loss, and grief. If you are seeking relief from high levels of anxiety, stress, isolation, loneliness, and depression, or intimate relationship issues. I can offer you a safe space to process and explore your challenges.

My Background and Approach

I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) psychotherapist with experience working with issues ranging from anxiety and depression to trauma, family problems, and relationship issues. I approach treatment in a direct, dynamic, culturally sensitive, and client-focused way. I am particularly interested in issues of diversity, couples, families, generational trauma. I provide support by helping you overcome patterns and obstacles that hinder your personal transformation. My work is grounded in different body-mind approaches. I am a Somatic Practitioner and EMDR trained, and I have a background in Relational Psychodynamic therapy and the Internal Family System approach. I have dedicated my counseling career to working with individuals, children, adolescents, and families. In my work, I pay extra attention to the influence of culture, class, race, spirituality, gender, and sexual identity as they shape our experience in the world.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that by healing from trauma, not only your quality of life will improve but the life of others as well. As Resmaa Menakem says, "when we heal our own tra​u​ma, individually and collectively, we don’t just heal our bodies. By refusing to ​pass on the trauma we inherited, we help heal the world.” I also believe that everyone’s life is unique and complex and therapy is a powerful and transformative process. Together we will explore your past, build mindful awareness in the present, and develop skills to achieve your future goals. Therapy will deepen your understanding of yourself and increase self-acceptance and self-compassion. This process can lead you to feel more joyful and living a more fulfilling life.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
