About Therapist Statement

I am aware of the stigma surrounding therapy/mental health in the Latinx community firsthand and this was one of the deciding factors in me becoming a therapist. I began my career learning about traditional healing methods (i.e. drumming circles, sweat lodges, etc.) and how they can be utilized in conjunction with psychotherapy and thus began my understanding of a more holistic approach to healing: mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. I utilize an empathic, but firm approach with my clients. My job is to empower you to figure out what healing looks like for you and guide you on how you can achieve this. Much like other relationships in your life, the relationship you have with your therapist is a unique and special one.

I am originally from the Bay Area and moved to Los Angeles to attend graduate school. I am bilingual native Spanish speaker, daughter of immigrant parents (Mexican mother and Peruvian father), and the first in my family to attend college and graduate school. My pronouns are She/Hers. My therapeutic orientation is person centered, psychodynamic, and trauma-informed, but have experience in utilization of cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, solution focused, and other strength based techniques. I am also a Board member and writer for the nonprofit Powerful Latinas Rising, feel free to check out my articles: The truth about Self-care ( http://powerfullatinasrising.org/the-truth-about-self-care/ )
