  • Welcome Message

    I am originally from Aguascalientes, Mexico raised in the U.S. since age 7. I identify as a bi-cultural, bilingual, Spanish/English speaking, undocumented, Mexican immigrant, woman of color.

    I completed my bachelors degree in Psychology with a minor in family studies at Central Washington University and Masters in clinical social work from the University of Washington. Much of my experience comes from working with communities of color from different age groups and backgrounds in various capacities for over 10 years. More specifically with the Latinx immigrant community. My work with different age groups across the mental health field has allowed me to have a deeper understanding of the different stages of development outside of my academic education. Especially how trauma transcends through generations and throughout a lifetime when it is not addressed. ​I consider trauma work my specialty as well as the co-occurring mental health struggles that often follow. My recent work experience in the last 3 years has been heavily concentrated in trauma-focused work specific to sexual abuse/assault while addressing the many intersections of violence that come with it.

    My practice is rooted in social justice and I am intentional about anti-oppressive ways of healing. My approach is very individualized and I aim to meet the person where they are at. I consider the systemic issues and take an intersectional approach to addressing the impacts on the person's mind, body, and spirit.
