About My Clients

I work mostly with LGBTQIA+ populations, Pagans and other minority spiritualities, children and adolescents, families, trans and non-binary populations, postpartum and perinatal mental health, and depth psychotherapy. I believe all should have a place they are welcome to bring their issues, needs, fears & dreams. I'm here to help with relationships, self esteem, spirituality, integrated well being, transitions, loss, trauma, behaviors, grief, parenting, and other challenges.

My Background and Approach

I use an integrative approach to meet your unique needs. I offer narrative, play, depth, ecotherapy and multicultural approaches. I work with children, adolescents, adults, families, couples and polycules. I have a biracial ethnic background and have pursued additional intersectional and multicultural awareness through an anthropology degree, community animation seminary in Mexico and Colorado, and additional coursework in religion, philosophy, feminism, LGBTQIA+ populations, and impacts of enslavement on populations in the U.S. In therapy, I often utilize art, cultural and experiential therapies, Family Systems, Feminist, Humanistic, Integrative, Interpersonal, Jungian, Narrative, Person-Centered, Play, Relational, and Sandplay therapies.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I grew up not realizing that everyone around me thought I was "white." Living with Mexican and Apache American family members, I knew I had lighter skin, of course, but I thought "white" was a mindset and sense of entitlement, they were the people who stopped you from visiting your family and the ones who shot innocent teens minding their goats, not a skin color. When I was 16 and realized that white people thought I was "safe" to make racial slurs around, I quickly came to realize that it was my job as a white-passing person to call them on it and explore my own biases. This was also about the time I began being bullied or excluded for being bisexual and exploring minority religious and spiritual beliefs. I believe you are the authority on your experiences and self. I believe there is no one Truth that applies to everyone. I believe we all deserve support and love, as we are, not after achieving whatever dominant narratives dictate is deserving of affirmation.

I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Atheism
  • Buddhism
  • Hinduism
  • Taoism
  • Wicca/Paganism
  • Interfaith
  • Multifaith
