Who I am as a Therapist


As an Afro-Latina bilingual woman, I’m dedicated to providing culturally-responsive therapy in Spanish and English. My personal lived experiences bring me to this work with a deep understanding of what it means to navigate the world in a Black and Brown body. The special concerns within the BIPOC community add an extra layer of complexity that isn’t always acknowledged or understood — I see you and I want to hold space for you as you process your journey.


I offer a nurturing and affirming space for clients of diverse backgrounds to explore their concerns. I believe therapy can be used as a tool to navigate life’s challenges. We all have an inner capacity to heal. It is not easy but it is possible. Your healing is worth the effort because you deserve peace and joy. I’m here to support you through your healing process. Together, we will embark on a journey of self-discovery, embracing both the triumphs and challenges that arise.


Building a strong therapeutic relationship based on authenticity, trust, respect, and genuine connection is essential to my approach. Through our work together, we will attend to your body and your mind – the whole you. We are a sum of all our parts and our healing should seek to integrate us and make us feel more whole. I use mindfulness, person-centered practices and other evidence-based approaches to offer support for a wide range of issues, including anxiety, grief, systemic racism, identity exploration, and intergenerational trauma. I hope to guide you as you unlock and magnify the resilience and wisdom within you.

“I must undertake to love myself and to respect myself as though my very life depends upon self-love and self-respect.” – June Jordan

Who I am when I’m not a Therapist


When I’m not being a therapist, I’m spending time with my partner, my family, or my friends. I like exploring new restaurants, cooking yummy meals, and crafting cheeseboards. I have a deep love for food and the experiences and community built around it. I enjoy dancing and reading. My favorite book is The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.
