Professional statement

Although seeking therapy can feel scary and very vulnerable, the willingness to ask for help is a sign of strength and empowerment. When life gets rough, it can leave us mired in anxiety or depression, unhappy in our relationships, dissatisfied with our careers, or highly critical of ourselves (or our bodies).

Therapy is a space for just for you, free from expectation or judgment, to develop deeper clarity in the challenges you face, so that you can begin to claim your most authentic, fulfilling life. I believe that therapy allows people to discover and name the internal and external forces at play in their life to not only understand the obstacles they face, but also to better understand their strengths and inherent value they bring to the world.

My warm, relational approach is anti-racist, gender-affirming and sex positive. Because each person's process is different, I use an eclectic mix of psychodynamic theory, attachment theory, mindfulness, and intersectionality. I highly value collaboration, curiosity, humor, and creativity, and imbue each of these qualities into my therapeutic process. Through working together, my hope is that you will gain a deeper understanding of yourself, how you navigate through the world, and your innate power to harness positive change and healing.


Message to clients

I work with a diverse range of clients and am especially interested in working with those facing depression and/or anxiety, young adults in life transitions, body image issues, relationship issues, and low confidence.

My approach to therapy is informed by own experiences as an artist (dancer and choreographer), a bi-racial Mexican-American woman, and my education at Hunter College. Each person faces distinct challenges based on the dynamic interaction of their identity and with societal norms, and I believe therapy can be a safe space to talk about topics society deems taboo, such as race or sexuality. My work as a dance artist has clarified the value of the stories we express to ourselves, as well as how our bodies are inextricably connected to our minds and our emotions. My education at Hunter College strengthened and clarified my commitment to social justice; I’m deeply committed to the life-long pursuit of being anti-racist, both inside and outside of the therapy room.

If any of part of my profile resonates with you, or you feel like we might be a good match, I invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation call. I'm looking forward to supporting you.
