I value my work with teens through aging adults who range in diverse needs and backgrounds. I am trained in EMDR and Perinatal Mental Health. I am Queer-affirming and Spanish-speaking, y soy Mexicana. I also center my work on anti-racism, social justice, and the intersectional identities of every client that I serve.
My Background and Approach
I utilize a trauma-informed combined with a relational-cultural framework. I focus on empowerment to promote resiliency, reduce re-traumatization, and cultivate healing through autonomy and choice. I have experience addressing issues such as complex trauma, intergenerational/transgenerational trauma, and grief and loss.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As someone who has had first-hand experiences with the complexities of life and trauma, I strongly believe in relationships as vehicles for change. As you enter your counseling journey, I intend to co-create a space with you so that you may feel safe, connected, and empowered.
