I enjoy working with individuals who are seeking a deeper awareness of their past, in order to understand themselves in the present and thrive in the future. I strive to create trusting relationships with my clients that allow us to work together collaboratively. I typically help clients with relational issues, depression, anxiety, life transitions and trauma. I utilize a LGBTQIA+ affirmative lens and fuse together a psychodynamic approach and when appropriate Attachment Focused EMDR to target traumas. I have also completed the level 1 training of the Gottman Method and utilize this practice when working with couples. My approach to therapy is predominately psychodynamic. I have strong background in cultural diversity, feminism and my graduate studies focused on LGBTQIA+ affirmative psychotherapy. Choosing a therapist who is an ally to the LGBTQIA+ community can often be a healing experience for clients who struggle to find support from cis-hetero people in their lives. Deciding to start therapy and choosing the right therapist can be a daunting process, but the choice is pivotal to your personal growth. This is why I offer free consults. For clients who are looking for a therapist who understands their cultural experience, I am a latinx therapist who recognizes she passes as white and the privilege that comes with that.
