  • 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 immigrant, and woman of color.

    Majority 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 and have an understanding of the co-occurring mental health struggles that often follow. My recent work experience has been heavily concentrated in trauma-focused work specific to sexual abuse/assault, while addressing the many intersections of violence that come with it.​ I embrace social justice and multicultural counseling to serve minority groups. My mission is to provide culturally responsive and accessible mental health care.

    I view the facilitation of healing (therapy) as an interactive process that aims to increase your sense of well-being. I believe in the inherent strengths, resilience and creative potential of who you are as an unique and valuable individual. My practice is rooted in social justice and a decolonizing mental health perspective. I am intentional about anti-oppressive ways of healing, and aim to meet the person where they are. I consider systemic issues and take an intersectional approach to addressing the impacts on the person's mind, body, and spirit.
