My Approach to Helping
Each of us has become who we are by way of our life experiences. Reflecting and offering insight along the way, my hope is to support you as you get to know yourself more deeply and develop tools to enhance your wellbeing. I believe some days we need direct, honest feedback and other days we need a compassionate, tender listener. It is my intention to adapt to your needs as they shift while cultivating a space where you can share without fear of judgement.
I approach therapy through a trauma-informed, strengths-based and identity affirming lens. Drawing from relational and psychodynamic theories, I incorporate tools from cognitive behavioral, somatic, and family systems therapies. Considering social, emotional, psychological and cultural dynamics, I work from an actively anti-racist and anti-opressive framework. I offer my services in both English and Spanish.
Starting therapy can be a daunting yet highly rewarding experience. I believe that with vulnerability and curiosity, our lives can become more enriched, connected and grounded. I am committed to supporting you through this process with a warm and collaborative spirit.
