Hola! I’m so glad you’re here.


Being a woman of color, I recognize the significance of cultural diversity and individual life experiences which is why I prioritize meeting you where you are. I am dedicated to fostering a space that is both safe and inclusive, particularly for members of the LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC communities or anyone who has felt “othered” by society. Your unique lived experiences will not only be respected but celebrated. I am committed to ongoing learning, advocacy, and ensuring that your identity is valued in our work together. I am passionate about working with folx who are grappling with trauma, anxiety, inner child work, emotion regulation, and self-esteem issues.

Above all else, I strive to conduct our sessions from a trauma-informed,

culturally-sensitive, and strength-based lens. To support that, I will draw from approaches like Narrative Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and Internal Family Systems to tailor to your specific goals and needs. Your wellness journey is yours, but you don't have to go through it alone. Let's work together to develop the skills you need to thrive in and out of the therapy space.
