My Approach to Helping

You have a feeling that the things you are struggling with in your life and in your relationships might have to do with mindsets you acquired from your childhood. Just maybe this way of doing life could be habits that you picked up from your family. And these habits and mindsets show up in your life, making it difficult to show up authentically. They get in the way of school, work, and even your closest relationships. You find yourself fighting with your partner and it scares you when you feel like this is no different from the relationships you saw as a kid, and you feel like you are only repeating the cycle. It makes you anxious, angry even, to think that you are no better than the family you had to deal with growing up. Enough is enough. You want it to end with you.

You want to be free from the constant arguments and have the life and relationship of your dreams. You want to live a life 100% aligned with the values that YOU choose. As bi-racial Latina therapist, I have both lived experience and years of therapeutic experience addressing the very issues that run deep. It is hard work and I can help you.

Therapy is great, finding a therapist, not so great. It is tough out there, I know! Picking a therapist is harder than picking what to watch on Netflix, for real. People who work with me appreciate my realness and ability to relate to the things that hurt the most. I use emotionally based and body based therapies to help people listen to those inner voices, emotions, and values. I teach people how to choose themselves, so that they can be better humans, for not only themselves, but everyone around them. With my couples I take this further and help them regain that spark and have a relationship where they no longer feel like strangers who can't stop arguing. Head on over to my website where to learn more about how I can help.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

I have the belief that many of the 'disorders' that people struggle with are a result of an unhealthy society. We are living in some pretty tense times and it makes sense why people are experiencing more depression, anxiety, and relationship struggles than ever. I view 'disorders' as adaptions to coping with life. This is a way of looking at things in a non-shaming way. Because we do the best that we can with what we have in the moment.
