I am a firm advocate for expanding access and enhancing therapeutic experiences for queer, Latinx, and BIPOC individuals.

My Therapy Style

I believe that therapy should be accessible to all. I aim to provide a safe, empathic, and comfortable environment that allows an individual to address their mental health needs at their own pace. I have worked in acute medical settings, homeless services, community mental health, higher education, and HIV+ case management. I am a firm advocate for expanding access and enhancing therapeutic experiences for queer, Latinx, and BIPOC individuals. As an LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapist, I support clients of any gender identity or expression.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

The simplest answer is that I've always wanted to be of service or to help others. Latinx individuals don't necessarily seek out mental health services and I wanted to help change that. Queer people also deserve to see themselves reflected in the world of mental health.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy attending live music events, watching horror movies, listening to podcasts, playing video games, and traveling domestically and abroad.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I listen to a lot of music.

What book have you read more than once?

I've read the Hunger Games trilogy several times. I love a story about overcoming the odds.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

The Trevor Project, because they offer a much-needed level of support to youth that so many people need.

How do you recharge?

Usually by going to dinner with friends or a movie. I also recharge by jumping in the pool or relaxing in the jacuzzi.

Do you have any pets?

I have two dogs. Their first trip was to San Fransisco and when I took them to Delores Park a professional photographer had a photoshoot with them.
