Mi trabajo como terapeuta

Si nos escondemos de lo incomodo y doloroso de la vida, nuestra vida se va encogiendo. Pero lo opuesto tambien es cierto. A medida que vamos expandiendo nuestra capacidad para notar y tolerar lo incomodo, las posibilidades de nuestra vida van creciendo y expandiendose. Es importante recalcar que esto no significa tolerar la injusticia, o resignarnos a circunstacias opresivas o daninas. Crear espacion en nuestras vidas para nuevas posibilidades requiere desarrollar flexibilidad para estar presentes en nuestro dia a dia y en nuestras relaciones de una manera auentica y con intencion. Tambien requiere reconocer cuando la incomodidad es demasidada, cuando rebaza nuestras capacidades de auto regulacion, y asimismo tener las herramientas para cuidarnos y protegernos. 

Creo que cada une de nosotres tiene la capacidad de crecer y cambiar, especialmente cuando estamos en espacios donde hay apoyo, donde no nos juzgan, y donde podemos llegar a conocer todas las partes de nuestro ser con compasion. Este es el tipo de espacio que desarrollo con mis clientes. Un espacio de empatia, aceptacion, y autenticidad. Porque despues de todo la relacion terapeutica es el vehiculo de cambio principal. 

Entender que nos mantiene estancades o nos hace sentir mal requiere reconocer los sistemas de poder, conocimiento, y cultura que rigen nuestras vidas. Yo estoy dedicade a investigar y desenredar como estos sistemas mantienen presos a nuestro corazon y nuestra mente. Tambien me dedico a aprender y desconstruir el privilegion del cual me beneficio. Si usted, mi cliente, esta liste para este trabajo, podemos hacerlo juntes para que usted tambiem pueda aprender acerca de estos sistemas y cambiar su relacion con ellos. 

Me encanta trabajar con poblaciones marginadas, especialmente personas de color y personas LGBTQ+. Como terapeuta afirmo a mis clientes LGBTQ+, su identidad y expresion de genero, sus 

I love working with marginalized folks, especially BIPOC or people from the global majority, as well as queer and trans people. I am LGBTQ+ affirming, gender affirming, and poly affirming, kink and BDSM affirming, and sex-work positive. I work with both adults and adolescents 13 years and up. My specialities are trauma work, depression, anxiety, and supporting folks who are moving through difficult transition, or who would like to get clarity on their life path. 

The depth and intensity of the content of our sessions might bring up uncomfortable feelings or sensations. You may, in fact, feel worse before you feel better. However, psychotherapy has been shown to create long-lasting benefits for people who can commit to the process. It is also important to note that consent is central to my practice, so we will always move at your pace. 

You can read more about the therapeutic modalities I specialize in below. 


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

ACT is a form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that focuses on helping individuals develop psychological flexibility, presence, and a deeper awareness of what is important and meaningful to them. Rather than shrinking away from discomfort and uncertainty, individuals can develop a greater flexibility to engage with the world and themselves in ways that are more meaningful and oriented towards their values. ACT also helps people loosen the hold of their thoughts on their minds. 

Somatic Therapy is a holistic approach to healing that combines talk therapy with body-centered practices. Because the body and mind are inseparable, healing happens when both are a part of the therapeutic process. By noticing our body’s cues we can expand our capacity to cultivate safety, pleasure and joy. Somatic work is particularly well suited to resolving trauma responses, but the benefits of nervous system regulation and a deeper awareness of our felt sense extend far beyond trauma work. 

Somatic Therapy

Feminist Therapy and the Anti-Oppression Lens

Feminist Therapy is an approach to therapy that is grounded in feminist principles of social justice and equality. I recognize that my clients' experiences are shaped by systems of power and oppression, and I strive to create a therapeutic environment that is sensitive to these dynamics. I work collaboratively with clients to explore the ways in which societal norms and expectations impact their lives, and to empower them to make choices that align with their own values and goals.

Why the condor?

The Andean condor is an important part of its ecosystem because it eats what is dead and digests it to clear space for new growth. In much the same way, the therapeutic process can help us find what no longer serves within us, metabolize it, and make room for new ways of seeing, being, and relating. The condor also flies high, and its bird's eye view can continually remind us of the power of taking a step back to gain perspective on our lives.

Important things to know
about telehealth

Telehealth is a convenient way to access therapeutic services without coming into an office to meet with me in person. Because therapy happens online, via a secure, HIPPA compliant platform, I am able to work with individuals all over the state of North Carolina. Telehealth requires access to a smart phone, tablet, computer, or other device with a stable and reliable internet connection. Cellular service is often not reliable and not ideal for telehealth sessions.


Telehealth is not appropriate for everyone. Together we can determine if telehealth would be a good fit for you during our initial consultation. 

The cost of telehealth services is the same as the cost of in-person sessions; please refer to the Services & Fees section above for my most up to date fees. If you plan on submitting a superbill to your health insurance provider for reimbursement, please check in directly with your insurer prior to beginning telehealth to determine whether telehealth sessions are reimbursable in part or in full.

While telehealth is convenient, it is important to know that it is not appropriate to participate in a telehealth session while driving, engaging in other activities, or from public locations. Telehealth works best when you have​ a safe, private space without distractions from which you can connect consistently.

El primer paso

¿Qué debo esperar de la consulta inicial?

La consulta inicial es una oportunidad para conocernos y ver si podríamos trabajar bien. Podrá aprender un poco acerca de mi, y acerca de la manera que abordo el trabajo de terapia. Tendrá usted tambien la oportunidad de hacerme preguntas acerca de lo que puedo ofrecerle, y que puede usted esperar si me elige como su terapeuta. Este no sera un espacio para iniciar el proceso de terapia a fondo, si no mas bien una forma de llegar a conocernos un poco. 

Good Faith Estimates

The No Surprises Act

Effective January 1, 2022, health care providers need to provide clients who are not using insurance an estimate of cost they can reasonably expect to pay for the care and services that will be provided.  The Good Faith Estimate (GFE) is the expected cost of any non-emergency items or services, and does not include any unknown or unexpected costs that may arise during treatment. You may accrue additional charges if complications or exceptional circumstances occur. The final cost of services may be higher. If you receive a bill at least $400 more than your GFE, you may dispute or appeal the bill.

You may contact the health care provider or facility listed to let them know the billed charges are higher than the GFE. You may ask them to update the bill to match the GFE, negotiate the bill, or ask if financial assistance is available. 


You may also start a dispute resolution process with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). If you choose to use the dispute resolution process, you must start the dispute process within 120 calendar days (about four months) of the date on the original bill. 


There is a $25 fee to use the dispute process. If the agency reviewing your dispute agrees with you, you will have to pay the price on this GFE. If the agency disagrees with you and agrees with the health care provider or facility, you will have to pay the higher amount. 


The Good Faith Estimate is not a contract, which means you are not required to obtain the items or services listed in the Good Faith Estimate.

To learn more about disputes and get a form to start the process, go to  or call 1-800-985-3059.

For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate or the dispute process, visit  or call 1-800-985-3059.
