Immigrants, students, activists, artists, people of color, and the queer & trans-Latinx community are the heart of my practice. I have experience working with diverse communities of color, the immigrant experience, the process of acculturation, and generational trauma, loss, and grief. If you are seeking relief from high levels of anxiety, stress, isolation, loneliness, and depression, or intimate relationship issues. I offer you a safe space to process and explore your challenges.
My work focuses on helping couples through periods of high stress and difficulty, finding deeper emotional stability within oneself and in their romantic relationship. Therapy will facilitate the process of identifying your attachment style and unmet needs and will allow the opportunity to reflect on old patterns and wounds while building a wider range of emotional expression and support among one another.
I offer a bicultural and bilingual English/Spanish couple's therapy.
I completed module one of the PACT training for couples.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is a psychotherapy approach that helps people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are usually the result of traumatic events or a disturbing life experience.
This is an eight-phase treatment and is one of an evidence-based approach to heal from trauma. I am a trained EMDR therapist.
Certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (Provisional)
Somatic Experiencing® is a body-awareness approach to trauma resolution developed by Dr. Peter Levine. Somatic Experiencing® is founded on the realization that human beings have an innate ability to overcome the effects of trauma. This approach facilitates the completion of the physiological trauma response and allow us to discharge the survival energy that gets stuck in our bodies. This approach aims to heal traumatic experiences by addressing the cause of symptoms. For more info visit this website.

“When we heal our own trauma, individually and collectively,
we don’t just heal our bodies.
By refusing to pass on the trauma we inherited,
we help heal the world.”
