For as long as I can remember, I’ve been passionate about equity and social justice. This led me into an early career of working in non-profits and educational advocacy. I had every intention of getting a teaching certification and stepping into the classroom; but my journey shifted and I followed. This passion still very much informs my work as a therapist/healer/helper and is often shared by the folx I have the honor of working with.
In my own personal healing journey, I’ve spent a great deal of time exploring and unraveling the many nuances of my identity as a multiethnic Latina/Xicana. I can relate to the ways that the intersectionality of multiple identities can sometimes show up as anxiety, imposter syndrome, doubt, insecurity and not-enoughness (that can be a word!)...the list goes on and on. I am grateful for the humanness of this experience and the healing that can come from exploring it in compassionate partnership with a healer. Ultimately, one can (and we have the right) to feel pride and loving power in all of our identities.
As a therapist, I lean into my own stories and healing spaces to meet you in yours. Sometimes that looks like listening or validating and other times I may offer movement, breath work or a grounding/guided meditation – all with the intention of strengthening your alignment to your most authentic, loving self.
My hope is you will land in this space and be met with compassion and ease.
