About My Clients

I enjoy working with children, teens, and adults of all identities and genders. I specialize in LGBTQIA+ experiences, disordered eating recovery from a culturally centered, weight-neutral and intuitive eating framework, relationship challenges, and life transitions. I can support you in defining your core values, as well as developing boundaries and coping skills to expand your sense of agency and rootedness while navigating change.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic process is collaborative, embodied, and invites all parts of you to be seen. I integrate somatic practices that prioritize your body’s wisdom and lived experience, DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and mindfulness (borrowed from Buddhist practices) to expand your capacity to navigate and withstand life’s challenges. Humor is essential in my life and the same is true in my therapy practice.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe all people in all bodies are deserving of care and safety, and that healing can be all the more powerful when rooted in our unique cultural experiences. No es fácil pedir ayuda y el estigma de buscar apoyo para nuestra salud mental a veces nos impide obtener la tranquilidad que merecemos. Como terapeuta, deseo acompañarte y juntes colaborar para realizar el cambio que tú deseas. Ofrezco terapia en Inglés, Español y Spanglish. Si gustas saber más sobre mi trabajo, no dudes en contactarme para programar una consulta gratuita de 15 minutos.
