Therapy is a courageous investment in yourself. It’s not always easy, so I prioritize creating a warm and nonjudgmental healing environment that balances acceptance and change. As a queer Latinx therapist, I believe each person is the expert of their own life, and I encourage my clients to decide for themselves what their life worth living looks like.
Together, we’ll take steps towards building you a life that honors your emotions, lived experiences, sexuality, gender, race, ethnicity, nationality, and/or lifestyle. I specialize in trauma-informed behavioral approaches that empower you to align your everyday actions with your personal values and long-term goals. By exploring old patterns and addressing current challenges, we’ll cultivate a foundation of insight, trust, and deep self-compassion to support your growth.
I have clinical experience with adults and families in English and Spanish, and I am part of the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) team at Dr. Pitagora’s practice. I work from an anti-oppressive lens, and all of my work is queer and trans affirming, pleasure, kink, poly, CNM, and SW positive.
I work on a sliding scale, and I currently have limited openings for new clients (virtual and in-person). Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions, to discuss fees, or to schedule a free consultation call.
