  • Welcome Message

    Hola y bienvenidos a mi práctica. Nací aquí pero mis padres son de México. I work with adult individuals and couples, and adolescents, especially people of color. I love to help folx who are struggling with depression, anxiety, parenting issues, loss, and marriage or relationship conflicts. People who come to see me have had traumatic or painful childhoods, have lots of worries, sadness or loss they can’t seem to get through or control, sometimes feel isolated or lonely in their communities or intimate relationships. Or they might feel like they don’t really belong or aren’t understood by the white dominated corporations they work in, or they’ve experienced infidelity or lots of arguments and unhappiness in their marriages. I listen deeply, convey my understanding with compassion, teach mindfulness skills to deal with the hurts in life, offer a new perspective that you may not have already thought about in terms of how to live your very best life. And I help couples to communicate in ways that feel better to both parties and build connection, resolve arguments, and grow a strong foundation for their families. I pay a lot of attention to your history, your feelings, your relationship patterns and what you aspire to have in all the important areas of your life, to help build bridges toward feeling more satisfied and at peace in your (Hot Mess) life. I also offer an online mindfulness course for women of color, and a couples workshop to divorce-proof your relationship. Thank you so much for your trust and courage to work with me!
