My Approach to Helping
I specialize in working with Latinx adolescents and young adults who hold multiple marginalized identities such as being neurodiverse, a part of the Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) community, a woman, or identifying within the LGBTQIA+ community. I have 5 years of experience working with, advocating, and learning from neurodiverse folks, specifically autistic people, in personal, school, and professional settings. In the past, I have worked in a community-based agency supporting Spanish-speaking Latinas who experienced immigration trauma, domestic violence, and loss. I also have extensive professional training and personal experience in supporting people with diverse sexual and gender identities. With my eclectic background, I hope to holistically support each of your identities.
I function from an anti-oppressive social justice framework, often using positive psychology to highlight strengths and abilities. In our work together, I will offer support and validation while we unpack past experiences and identify future coping strategies.
