About Therapist Statement

Hello! My name is Tina and I practice in Southern California. As a daughter of immigrants, a Pocha, and a highly sensitive person who always felt like the odd one out and with my own history of trauma, 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.

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. Often my clients are individuals who find themselves caring for and attending to others’ needs and wellbeing rather than their own either due to their profession as leaders, entrepreneurs, artists or helping professionals or even just due to life circumstances. I work with my clients to recognize the thoughts, feelings and physical responses to trauma as a means of understanding themselves and their trauma and to regain control. I also like to explore the role of intergenerational trauma in my client's lives and help them connect with their inner child as a part of their healing journey. My hope is that through our work together you are able to connect with your inner healer and take that next step forward throughout your healing journey.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ¡Hola! Mi nombre es Tina y practico en California. Como hija de inmigrantes, Pocha y persona altamente sensible y con mi propia historia de trauma siempre me sentí como la extraña. 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.

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 menudo, mis clientes son personas que se encuentran cuidando y atendiendo las necesidades y el bienestar de los demás en lugar de los propios, ya sea por su profesión como líderes, emprendedores, artistas o profesionales de ayuda o incluso simplemente por circunstancias de la vida. Trabajo con mis clientes para ayudarlos a reconocer los pensamientos, sentimientos y respuestas físicas al trauma como un medio para entenderse a sí mismos y su trauma y a recuperar el control. También exploro el papel del trauma intergeneracional en la vida de mis clientes y ayudarlos a conectarse con su criatura interior como parte de su viaje de sanación. Mi esperanza es que a través de nuestro trabajo juntos, puedan conectarse con su sanador interior y dar el siguiente paso adelante a lo largo de su viaje de sanación.
