There’s room for all of you here.

I bring my full self into my work, and openly identify as a bilingual first-generation queer Latina clinician. I work with a strength based, affirming, non-judgmental approach. I center my work with clients around empowerment and anti-racist and anti-oppressive practices. I believe it’s critical to acknowledge the ways in which institutional structures, present day events, and historical contexts can all actively contribute to an individual’s well-being.

I’m a Brooklyn born, North Carolina transplant who has an extensive history in working within higher education in diversity and equity efforts as well as being actively involved in community efforts and advocacy work. I’m deeply invested in creating spaces for healing and growth for individuals with historically marginalized identities. I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology at UNC Chapel Hill where I double minored in Latinx Studies and Social and Economic Justice and ultimately returned to UNC Chapel Hill for my Masters of Social Work degree.

I strongly believe in the insight and wisdom that an individual brings about themselves to therapy. As a therapist, I feel honored to bring my clinical insight to the relationship and recognize the importance in creating a collaborative relationship with clients to work together to identify and target goals and areas of development and healing.
