About

¡Hola y Bienvenidxs! I am a bilingual (trilingual if we include Spanglish), bicultural therapist and the CEO/Founder of Pa'lante Therapy, Inc. I center my work with BIPOC individuals with an emphasis on Latinx communities. I am an ally to the LGBTQIA+ and undocumented/DACAmented communities. I've been practicing as a mental health professional since 2011. My areas of specialty include trauma (e.g. racial/ancestral/intergenerational trauma, early childhood trauma, complex trauma in immigrant populations), anxiety, depression, stress,  perfectionism, professional identity-related issues, and the imposter phenomenon (imposter syndrome) . I am passionate about empowering First-Generation Latinas/Women of Color (WOC) college/graduate students and professionals. Whether you're in or starting college or graduate school, starting a new career, or simply navigating your professional identity, you may be thinking, "Do I even belong here? Am I good enough?" Life transitions coupled with the imposter phenomenon may bring up anxiety, depressive thoughts, or even traumatic stress. Digging deep into the origins of the imposter phenomenon may uncover wounds from intergenerational trauma, childhood trauma, or environmental triggers (i.e. systemic oppression, micro-aggressions, racism, machismo, marianismo). As the eldest daughter of undocumented immigrants from Mexico, I draw from my lived experiences of navigating two different cultures to empathize and support my clients navigate cross-cultural conflicts. If you are a First-Generation Latina/Women of Color who is ready to heal from generational wounds, find healthy ways to manage anxiety, or improve your overall mental and emotional well-being, schedule a free consultation. Together, we will understand the negative behaviors developed over time, overcome the past, and identify solutions to live life authentically and with confidence. It is time to reclaim your worth and restore yourself to the person you were always meant to be! I provide culturally responsive therapy and practice through trauma-informed, anti-oppressive lenses. I use a combination of treatment modalities to best support the needs of my clients. All services are in English and Spanish.
