About My Clients

The clients I have worked with all present with different journeys and symptoms, but some of the common themes revolve around the areas of existentialism, depression, complex trauma, and developmental/behavioral concerns. I will always take into consideration the intersections of your life, how you choose to identify, where you are and what you want to work on. (Servicios disponibles en español.)

My Background and Approach

My approach has always revolved around the notion that we all want to connect and be understood. Despite what our journeys are, talking to someone who empathizes and may understand what you are experiencing can be life changing. I have found myself practicing with more than one "specialization". I've wanted to have a diverse understanding of mental health and the issues that people may be experiencing. In my years since beginning my journey, I have obtained training and experience in many forms of therapy, including TF-CBT, CBT, EMDR, Experiential Therapy, Humanistic psychotherapy, and more. Over the years, I have worked utilizing Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) for individuals with Autism, provided psychoeducation and crisis counseling at Domestic Violence Shelters, and have provided therapy for people experiencing abuse, complex trauma, homelessness and other adversities. With that said, I welcome opportunities in which I also learn from you. You are the expert of your life.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a Latino Queer man, I believe it is important and imperative to find spaces where we can feel safe, represented, and advocated for. With that said, I acknowledge that living/interacting in environments that may marginalize or oppress someone, can make finding these spaces difficult. My personal belief is that transparency is important in any relationship. The therapeutic relationship that we will establish is no different. Having your first therapy session is a momentous moment, as it is a big step towards a future in which you may feel happier. I seek to continue to empower you to raise awareness to thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that may be taking place in your life, that may be connected to stressors you are experiencing. Once we can identify them, we can get to that "AHA!" moment, and move closer towards experiencing a more joyous/fulfilling life.
