About Therapist Statement

Hello! My name is Tina, and I am the daughter of immigrants from Mexico, a native Angeleña, and a wounded healer.

I support people who are ready to do the difficult work of addressing their experience of loss, life transitions, and trauma. I specialize in working with people that have experienced childhood trauma and abuse, survivors of sexual abuse, and people who have had difficult experiences that they can't seem to get over. Many of my clients struggle to put themselves first and often feel overwhelmed and stuck although in they appear to have it all together in other people’s eyes. They struggle to ask for help due to fear of being seen as weak and deep inside what they really want is to be seen and accepted for who they are, unconditionally.

My approach to therapy is human-first.  It is important for me to create a space where people feel like they not only belong but that their story matters and where they can find their own healing within themselves. My hope is that through our work together you can connect with your inner healer and take that next step forward throughout your healing journey.

I invite you to read more about me and my practice on my website or contact me for more information.

¡Hola! Mi nombre es Tina, y soy hija de inmigrantes de México, angeleña de toda la vida y alma sanadora y herida. 

Apoyo a las personas que están listas para hacer el difícil trabajo de enfrentar su experiencia de pérdida, transiciones de vida y trauma. Me especializo en trabajar con personas que han experimentado traumas y abusos infantiles, supervivientes de abusos sexuales y personas que han tenido experiencias difíciles que parece que no pueden superar. A muchos de mis clientes se les dificulta por ponerse a si mismos en primer lugar y, a menudo, se sienten abrumados y estancados, aunque aparentan tener todo bien. Se les hace difícil pedir ayuda por miedo a ser vistos como débiles y lo que realmente quieren es ser vistos y aceptados por quienes son, sin condiciones.

Mi enfoque terapéutico es humano primero. Esto quiere decir que es importante para mí crear un espacio donde las personas sientan que no solo pertenecen, sino que su historia es importante y donde puedan encontrar su propia curación dentro de ellos mismos. Mi esperanza es que a través de nuestro trabajo juntos, pueda conectarse con su sanador interior y dar el siguiente paso adelante a lo largo de su viaje de sanación.

Te invito a leer más sobre mí y mis credenciales en mi sitio web o que te pongas en contacto conmigo para obtener más información.
