About My Clients

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults, prioritizing trauma, attachment wounds, and neurodivergence. Rather than treating neurodivergence, I guide clients to discover strengths and adjust their environment. Sessions prioritize self-regulation, allowing activities like stimming, walks, and the use of sensory tools. Clients are encouraged to request accommodations tailored to their sensory needs, fostering a supportive and personalized therapeutic experience.

My Background and Approach

Before therapy, I worked in foster care, group homes, and health clinics. Since 2018, I've offered therapy in homes and offices. COVID lockdowns prompted me to stop procrastinating and complete my MA in Adlerian Counseling in 2020. I value you as the expert on being you, contributing crucial insights to our sessions. I don't categorize distress as a disorder; it's a natural response to an abnormal world. My focus spans trauma, attachment wounds, and supporting neurodivergent individuals. Instead of treating neurodivergence, I empower you to uncover strengths and adjust to your environment. Let's embark on a healing journey together, navigating challenges with resilience and growth.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I transitioned from a Californian to a Minnesotan during my 'quarter-life crisis' in 2015. As a cis-gendered Mexican-American, I grapple with the loss of cultural roots. Real talk is my style – I fidget, take brain meds, curse, and share life snippets. Life's a unique journey with no one-size-fits-all approach. I believe in the beauty of human experience, embracing both joy and life's messiness, recognizing that grief coexists with love, joy, and hope. Childhood anxiety shaped me, and as an adult, I identify as neurodivergent, contemplating the impact of assessments for Autism or ADHD could have had on me. Coping with climate change anxiety, I find solace in gardening on my porch and soaking in sunny grassy moments. Though my puppy may join therapy sessions one day, for now, he's happily occupied with mischievous chewing. In telehealth sessions, my cat might snooze on the radiator or rudely demand to be fed. Let's navigate life's intricacies together.
