Therapy

My therapeutic work is grounded in two overarching principles: mindfulness-based approaches and culturally competent practices. I provide therapeutic approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Self-Compassion techniques, Guided Imagery, Trauma Sensitive Yoga, and other Somatic based interventions.

LGBTQ+ Counseling

LGBTQ Counseling includes an approach to therapy that embraces a positive view of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) identities and relationships and addresses the negative influences that homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism have on the lives of LGBTQ clients.

Latin/e & BIPOC Counseling

Providing counseling to clients that identify within a minority group may include (but not limited to) identity development, intersection of identities, systemic trauma and minority stress, acculturation, family and generational differences, and first generation students.

Trauma

It takes courage to be willing to work through trauma. I take a trauma informed approach with any client I support, and it is especially true for those ready to heal from trauma. I am intentional in providing a safe and supportive space in order to establish a sense of safety, the foundation for healing.

Somatic Based Issues

 I do work with clients in order to process the emotional and mental impact that pain, chronic illness, psychosomatic diagnosis, or negative self-image may have on their life.

Youth

My expertise in working with youth stems from years of experience. This includes working in non-profit agencies focused on the intersection between child welfare and mental health, advocating for families involved in several systems.
