Therapy rooted in Relationship
Do you feel as though you are seen and understood in relationships? Maybe you struggle to find affirmation in your needs and desires. Or have you at times felt like you are "too much" or "not enough"? You are not alone. Many of us struggle to feel "normal" in a world that pathologizes who we are and how we function. The therapeutic relationship can offer you a place to explore the parts of yourself that feel unknown. I aim to offer a caring & compassionate space where one can liberate themselves from shame and live into their authenticity.
I provide therapy for adults and adolescents. I am a relational trauma-therapist who operates from feminist, attachment-focused and existential perspectives. Typical concerns of my clients include managing the effects of trauma and shame, relationship issues, body image, identity exploration, and grief.
As a Queer, Latinx + white person, I have experience living in the intersections. As a therapist, I work to understand the unique identities and experiences of each individual. I'm committed to supporting the LGBTQIA+ community, including those who are non-binary, gender diverse, and individuals exploring their sexuality and/or identities. I have experience working with folks in non-traditional relationships and take an affirming stance on sex work. I recognize all forms of oppression to be inseparable from experiences of mental health.
You are the expert on your own life and already hold all the wisdom you need to be healed and whole. And with time and trust, therapy can become a space that allows you to explore your interiority with more curiosity than fear. So together, let us unearth the wisdom you already hold and plant seeds for growth and change.
