I started my own therapy journey nearly a decade ago. After finding a deeper awareness of myself I realized I could utilize my passion for helping others and fine-tune the skills by earning a Master's degree in Clinical Psychology. I chose to study at Antioch University in Los Angeles, CA, a school that takes pride in its social justice approach to learning. I then completed my training at Airport Marina Counseling Service in Westchester, CA, where I learned to work with clients through a psychodynamic lens. During that time I worked with a diverse range of adults and also met with children at Boys and Girls Club of Venice. Upon completing my training I started working with children, families and adults at Wellnest in South Los Angeles. I have also worked with clients struggling with homelessness at St. Joseph Center in Santa Monica, CA. I now live in Humboldt County where I see clients in person at my office located in Eureka, CA and via telehealth throughout the state of California. I strive to create trusting relationships with my clients that allow us to work together collaboratively on their goals. My approach to therapy is a mixture of psychodynamic, CBT and mindfulness. I am also well versed in feminist and LGBT affirmative psychotherapy, an approach that is beneficial to anyone no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation. My style is gentle, but direct and with some humor. I typically help those seeking therapy for things like women's issues, life transitions, relational issues, depression and anxiety. For clients who are looking for a therapist who understands their cultural experience, I am a latinx therapist who recognizes she passes as white and the privilege that comes with that. If you feel like we may be a good fit, I look forward to hearing from you.
