I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology from Antioch University in Santa Barbara and I am licensed to practice in Washington State. With dedication and expertise in the field of mental health, I am committed to providing comprehensive, trauma-informed therapeutic support.
Serving both adolescents and adults, I utilize a person-centered approach and provide therapy from a holistic lens. My skills are rooted in Somatic Therapy, Polyvagal Theory, Emotional Transformation Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. I believe that assisting clients in building autonomy and choice in therapy is critical for healing.
My experience spans diverse populations, including new parents, grief-stricken individuals, survivors of abuse, those impacted by infidelity, individuals dealing with PTSD, anxiety, and more. I am particularly attuned to the needs of LatinxGlobal Majority, LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities.
Within the therapy experience, I consider the unique blend of histories, cultures, beliefs, relationships, identities, and stories that are a play. She is committed to forming relationships rooted in consideration, trust, and care, ensuring a supportive and affirming space.
My Therapy Focus
I utilize trauma-informed, polyvagal, and attachment-based therapeutic techniques, which are particularly effective in assisting those who have experienced betrayal or complex relational trauma, that includes techniques to regulate the nervous system and restore a sense of safety in relationships.
