Pronouns: she, her, hers

I work with clients of many identities (race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexuality, etc.) and welcome all.

So often we have need of a place, a space serving both as one of refuge and centerstage to step deeper into our power and authenticity. To understand ourselves as we truly are in all our complexities, contradictions, and multitudes.

My vibe is equally vibrant as it is calm. My therapeutic approach is relational, existential, and trauma-informed while incorporating playfulness, guided exploration, and radical acceptance and compassion. In our co-created space, I seek to help you connect with the wisdom of your body and mind to build greater awareness and harmony with yourself, your relationships, and the world around you.

As a white-passing, cisgender Latina, I am committed to antiracism and decolonizing mental health. I welcome all.
