About me

I am passionate about supporting mothers in reclaiming their bodies as their own, free from external and internal judgments and expectations. I will support you in moving toward the version of yourself that is life-giving. I want to help you reconnect to the part of you that knows you are worthy of experiencing joy and connection just as you are, all while enhancing your parenting skills so your daughter feels empowered by this new narrative and has a chance to live a more liberating life.

I am a cis-gendered female, daughter of immigrant salvadoreño parents, currently able-bodied, a lifelong learner, and a dedicated psychotherapist who draws inspiration from musical activism’s rebellious spirit, recognizing its power to challenge the status quo and promote growth and change.

It is my conviction that your Spirit heals you. Meaning, I acknowledge the spirit given to us by the Creator to move us toward healing. This is a part of each of us regardless of the trauma/distressing life experiences that moved us toward the need to control our bodies to prove that we are worthy. No matter what you’ve lived through or how broken you may believe or have been told you are, your Spirit was never harmed and is always ready to have a relationship with all of you.

I embrace a non-pathologizing, culturally affirming, Womanist/Mujerista, and liberation-based model of healing. My approach draws from integrative evidence-based modalities such as EMDR (attachment-focused, somatic psychology), parts work (structural dissociation and internal family systems), narrative therapy (re-authoring your story), and others as necessary for your specific needs. I advocate for body liberation and the Health at Every Size (HAES) paradigm. I incorporate mindfulness practices, attuned, intuitive, and/or practical eating, and the wisdom of my ancestors and chosen ancestors who guide my values.
