About My Clients

Whether you're in or starting college or graduate school, starting a new career, or simply navigating your professional identity, you may be thinking, "Do I even belong here? Am I not good enough?" Life transitions coupled with imposter syndrome may bring up anxiety, depressive thoughts, or even traumatic stress. Digging deep into the origins of imposter syndrome may uncover wounds from intergenerational trauma, childhood trauma, or environmental triggers (i.e. systemic oppression).

My Background and Approach

My areas of specialty include trauma (e.g. racial/ intergenerational trauma, early childhood trauma, complex trauma in immigrant populations), inner child work, anxiety, depression, stress, professional identity related issues, and imposter syndrome. Through a strength-based approach and caring and collaborative environment, I help and empower my clients to be the best version of themselves. I have experience with providing therapy to children birth to five, school-aged children, adolescents, transitional-aged youth, and adults. I am currently working with First-Generation Latinas/Women of Color (WOC) college/graduate students and professionals. I use a combination of treatment modalities to best support the needs of my clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am passionate about empowering and uplifting the voices that are often silenced in professional and academic spaces. I center my work with BIPOC individuals with an emphasis on Latinx communities. I am an ally to the LGBTQIA+ and undocumented/DACAmented communities. I provide culturally inclusive, anti-oppressive, trauma-focused therapy services.
