I work with people who are experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, as well as old or new traumas. HABLO ESPAÑOL: Me dedico a los que experimentan ansiedad, estrés, y depresión además que traumas tantos los viejos que los nuevos.

I specialize in innovative approaches to change and healing including somatic, dialogic, and collaborative strategies. What does this mean? It means that how we work together is individualized to who you are and what your experiences have been. I enjoy working with people who have not found talk therapy very helpful in the past and feel like they still need support for something different to happen in their lives. I support racialized people and LGBTQ-identifying people who may not have felt supported in traditional mental health agencies.

Me especializo en enfoques innovadores para hacer cambios en la vida y sanar las heridas emocionales. Utilizo estrategias somáticas, dialógicas y colaborativas. ¿Qué significa esto? Significa que la forma en que trabajamos juntos se individualiza según quién es usted y cuáles han sido sus experiencias. Aprecio el trabajo con personas que no han encontrado la terapia de conversación muy útil en el pasado y sienten que todavía necesitan apoyo para que suceda algo diferente en sus vidas. Apoyo a las personas racializadas y a las personas que se identifican como LGBTQ que pueden no haberse sentido apoyadas anteriormente en las agencias tradicionales de salud mental.
