Speaker Bio

As a client-centered practitioner specializing in serving the BIPOC and LGTBQ+ community, I am passionate about creating a space where we all can thrive, not just survive. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) with over a decade of experience. I founded TODOS Therapy in 2020 during the pandemic. TODOS stands for Together Overcoming and Demystifying the Others' Struggles and to was founded to create a safe space for anyone who feels like an outsider. As a Bay Area native, my exposure to different backgrounds and cultures helped shape me into who I am today. I focus on individual and family therapy for clients with diverse backgrounds. By utilizing various therapeutic techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based, trauma-informed approaches, I help clients achieve their goals. Creating a safe and non-judgmental space where clients can openly discuss their concerns is at the forefront of our philosophy. There is a space for all of us, and together we can heal and overcome our struggles.

Collaboration is a key part of providing holistic care. I collaborate with mental health peers, doctors, teachers, psychiatrists, and social workers in providing comprehensive client care. I utilize my communication skills, problem-solving acumen, and critical thinking process to support clients through their mental health journey. In addition, I am committed to working with organizations focused on supporting adolescent and young adult therapy, mental health counseling, and education around mental health access and awareness.

As an educator, speaker, and trainer, I give back to my community by spreading awareness. My areas of expertise include burnout prevention and recovery, imposter syndrome, workplace & academic stress, anti-racism & anti-oppression in mental health. My diverse client base has allowed me to connect with various cultural backgrounds, including but not limited to Latinx, Asian American, African American, and LGBTQIA+. My understanding of cultural nuances and social determinants of mental health enables me to tailor therapy to the unique needs of each client.

My extensive training and experience have provided me with valuable insights into mental health, counseling techniques, and the challenges faced. My training started with high school and college students and has evolved and expanded to include mental health professionals and adults. I desire to raise awareness and reduce the stigma around mental illness. I am committed to providing compassionate and evidence-based care to help clients lead healthy and fulfilling lives. I dedicate a part of my practice and time to guest speaking, education, and training. I would love the opportunity to work with you in raising awareness and creating resiliency in your workplace or learning environment.
