Co-creating a brave space where my clients can work on the relationships with the special people in their life, be it their partner(s), children, other family members, friends, and others, is what I am deeply passionate about. I enjoy working with couples, polycules, families, and people with other types of relationships. Relational therapy offers a unique opportunity for people to grow, heal from painful experiences, and build healthier relationships, whatever that looks like for each client. I will support you and your relationships along our therapeutic journey together by centering your unique strengths, needs, and goals.
I offer an empathetic, compassionate, and client-centered environment for each of my couples, polycules, families, and the like. I make sure each member of the relationship feels heard. I believe every person is an expert of their own life and has innate wisdom within themselves. I am here to meet you where you are at, help you get back up if you have fallen, and support you in living a life and cultivating relationships that align with your values.
I utilize Family and Relational Systemic Theory, Intersectional Feminist-Informed Theory, and Culturally Affirmative Therapy with my clients. This includes, but is not limited to: culturally affirming therapy for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), the Latinx community, the LGBTQ2SIA+ community, and those at the intersection of these communities. When working with clients, I will consider all their dimensions of culture and their intersectionality.
I provide individual, relational (for couples, polycules, constellations, and more), and family therapy (families of origin and chosen families), always utilizing a systemic lens. When working with couples, polycules, and constellations: I utilize the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Attachment Theory, and Narrative Therapy. I specialize in relational therapy where one or more of the partners or members of a relationship or family is Trans, Non-Binary, Queer, Bisexual+, BIPOC, Latinx, or at the intersections of two or more of these identities. I strive to provide the most affirming space for these clients. In addition to therapy in English, I can also provide therapy in Spanish.
It is truly an honor and privilege to witness and support clients and their relationships throughout their therapeutic journey. I look forward to working with each client along their unique life path.
