My Approach to Helping
Welcome! As a Bilingual (Spanish & English), Queer Bisexual Xicana, & Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I understand that most of us want to feel seen, heard, & accepted. And although outward validation & affirmation help, the deep work & healing lies in being able to validate & affirm ourselves, all of our identities, & lived experiences. In our lives, as we continue evolving & changing as individuals, we reach points where the coping strategies we have previously used, & that have helped us survive at one point, may no longer serve us, & can actually interfere with our ability to connect to ourselves & others.
My expertise includes working with LGBTQIA+, & BIPOC (particularly Latinx), youth (5-18 years old) & their families, & transitional age youth (18-25 years old), & adult populations. I approach my work with cultural humility, & incorporate trauma-informed, LGBTQIA+ identify affirming, & in age-appropriate ways, sex-positive, poly-friendly, & kink-aware approaches.
I want to collaborate with you & create a safe space for you to process your identities & lived experiences. I hope that through our work together you are able to become a more authentic version of yourself, where you are able to more deeply connect with yourself & those around you. I am excited to connect with you & support you on your journey.
