handcrafted healing for adults
Curious what to expect during session? First and foremost, I revere the therapeutic alliance to be a sacred space, but don't expect stuffy office vibes-boricua & bougie all the way. My personality shines through my role as a clinician, so you can anticipate that I keep real with my clients, coupled with compassion and humor. I'm casual, but clinical. I do go at your pace, but I also encourage my clients to not swim just in the shallow, but to challenge yourself to go to the deep.
As far as the "therapy" portion goes, I respect your commitment to do this work, and you deserve to experience tangible results. I utilize evidence-based treatment models to ensure that you receive the most ethical and best practice techniques to address your therapy goals.
I’m a low key nerd & love how the brain works + I believe clients deserve EFFECTIVE therapy, so my favorite way to help clients heal from past experiences is by using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing-say that three times fast). If you aren't familiar, click the EMDR tab to get oriented and I will be happy to explain further. I also parcel in the following models to the work we do together:
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Dialectal Behavioral Therapy (DBT
Child-Parent Psychotherapy (CPP)
I honor the opportunity of witnessing healing in session, but what energizes me most, is to learn how your life outside this space has been impacted. Throughout the process, I welcome your feedback regarding what approaches are creating positive outcomes in you real life (where it matters most) and which ones are not resonating with you.
