There is a place in the therapy room for cognitive processing, but there should also be space to connect with your body. The experiences we endure throughout our lives can leave lasting imprints on our bodies and minds. After repeated experiences of trauma, we can overwork our nervous systems and become disconnected from our bodies, leaving us feeling numb or exhausted. As a trauma informed therapist, I believe that in order to heal, we need to feel.
Therapy is about letting you take control of your life and helping you feel empowered. It is also a place where you can learn that emotions do not always have to overpower you; in fact, emotions can be our teachers. My goal is to create a space where you feel comfortable showing up as yourself because you can count on being seen, heard, and accepted for exactly who you are that day.
My clinical training was completed at a community mental health agency where I worked with high acuity cases including young adults, adolescents, and families significantly impacted by trauma. I also co-facilitated grief and intensive outpatient substance use groups for adolescents and have over 5 years of experience working with the neurodivergent population.
Throughout my training I had the opportunity to provide therapy in Spanish, my native language, and have grown a passion for continuing to serve the Hispanic community. I appreciate the benefits of a shared experience and believe that representation in the therapy room matters.
I would be honored to be a part of your journey and I hope to hear from you soon!
