A proud Latina/Latinx daughter of Colombian immigrants I spent over 20 years helping to build social justice movements for racial justice, immigrant and student rights. As a therapist of color I am deeply passionate about empowering BIPOC, Black Indigenous People of Color, and our allies. As we heal and reclaim our power, we become a portal to freedom for our families and communities.
You are important! In a warm, non-judgmental setting, we'll build on your innate wisdom to address issues including nurturing self-esteem/self-worth; releasing co-dependent relationship patterns and cultivating healthy boundaries; unresolved trauma and loss; imposter syndrome; healing from racism and empowerment for People of Color; freedom from addiction and 12 Step recovery.
Philosophers and revolutionaries Frantz Fanon, Angela Davis, Gloria Anzaldua, James Baldwin and Ignacio Martin-Baro´ inform my vision of liberation psychology for people of color.
Congratulations for taking this bold step in your journey. Please don't hesitate to reach out to discuss whether I might be a fit for you. It gets better and you're worth it!
