About Therapist Statement

¡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 LGBTQ+ and undocumented/DACAmented communities. I've been practicing as a mental health professional since 2011. My areas of specialty include trauma (e.g. racial/ intergenerational trauma, early childhood trauma, complex trauma in immigrant populations), anxiety, depression, stress,  professional identity related issues, and imposter syndrome (imposter phenomenon/perfectionism) . 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 not good enough?" Life transitions coupled with imposter syndrome may bring up anxiety, depressive thoughts, or even traumatic stress. Digging deep into the origins of imposter syndrome may uncover wounds from intergenerational trauma, childhood trauma, or environmental triggers (i.e. systemic oppression, micro-aggressions).

If you are a First-Generation 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 cultural 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.
