About

Are you a first-generation Latinx who is feeling overwhelmed by the pressure of everyone’s expectations (including your own)? You feel as though you can't let your family down. You are a perfectionist and overachiever. You take on extra projects at work or stay late because saying no is difficult. The result is finding yourself emotionally depleted, exhausted, and anxious. You may have moments when you think, "I have a good life why do I feel this way?". You want to seek help but are afraid of what la familia might say. Pero sabes que ya no puedes continuar asi, so here you are taking the first step! As a first-generation Latina, I understand our unique struggles, cultura, and tradiciones. I'm here to listen and help you process the challenges first-gens face, as we go through life transitions, and grow in our professional careers. I see you as a person within a larger system that consists of your family and society. When you are ready to take the next step, I would be honored to go on this journey with you. Call me to set up an appointment or go to my website and schedule a consult. On a personal note. I am a first generation Mexican-American, the oldest in my family, and a mommy of two. My roots are from Zacatecas. My parents migrated to the United States in search of a better life. English is my second language. I did not learn English until I started school. I grew up in a strict traditional Mexican household, (pedi permiso asta los 22 años). I married cuando tenia 33 años (considered late by our cultura’s standards). Our cultura and tradiciones are a large part of our everyday life. We hope to continue to pass on our tradiciones and cultural pride to future generations, starting with my two children. The name of my practice is Cultura Wellness Therapy, inspired by my goal of mental health to be viewed as normal and positive en mi comunidad.
