In this increasingly “good vibes only” culture, do you feel that you need to hide parts of yourself in order to fit in or be included in the group?

Do you feel like you’re either too much or not enough? Like you’re the black sheep, or feel out of place? You may also be an out-of-the-box thinker or creative person who is struggling to feel accepted, loved, or trying to find your voice, your place, or your people in the world. 

These experiences leave you feeling isolated, exhausted, and overwhelmed. 

If this sounds familiar, there is hope. You want to reevaluate who and what you want in your life. I can help you sort through what is important to you. I’m here to help you enjoy, embrace and celebrate parts of you that you have been told don’t belong. I will support you on a journey to find and identify these aspects of yourself and to help you understand where they come from. We can work on helping you find relief from burnout, exhaustion, insecurity, and lack of boundaries. This is a relationship like no other, and my own experiences have helped prepare me to help others gain confidence, hope, and finding our most authentic and comfortable selves.

My family arrived in Los Angeles from Mexico and Southern parts of the U.S. As someone who identifies as multiracial, and I understand the feeling of non-belonging, displacement, and impact of intergenerational trauma. I can also understand the stigma that comes with seeking therapy, and believe that healing is our right.
