Anxiety is provoked by an array of situations, environments, and relationships. Worry, stress, fear, overwhelm, irrational thinking, nervousness, restlessness, intrusive thoughts, tense, panic attacks, rapid heart rate, sweaty palms, trembling, lethargy, insomnia, digestive problems, difficulty focusing, and rapid breathing. Depression is provoked situationally, environmentally or physically. Moments of sadness, feelings of worthlessness, fatigued, loneliness, suicidal ideation, feelings of being less than, crying spells, bottled up emotions to name a few.
Abuse is oftentimes invisible. Areas of abuse are spiritual, emotional, psychological, verbal, physical, and sexual. Spiritual, emotional, psychological, and verbal abuse is demonstrated through hurtful words in the form of gas-lighting, power, manipulation, control, name-calling, narcissism, and oppression due to sex, race, religion, or gender. Physical and sexual abuse is also displayed through power, control, manipulation, and grooming. Under these categories of abuse. I also treat trauma, rape, incest, pornography addictions, exploitation, trafficking, #MeToo and/or domestic violence. I serve young adult survivors who have faced any kind of abuse as a child, adolescent or young adult and are currently experiencing triggers related to the abuse.
Minority folks have faced societal instances whether its bullying, racism, including racial profiling, and injustice. The effects of such results with trauma, oppression, isolation, loneliness, anxiety, depression, and other underlying factors/emotions which are often difficult to process. I provide people groups the starting point to heal.
Let's face it - heartbreak is a sucky feeling. Romantic relationships require commitment and communication, however, along the way due to differences or other unforeseen reasons, relationships come to an end. Heartbreak, loss, and life transitions make us feel stuck. I help people establish boundaries and get back up on their feet. Whether you were hooking up on a dating app, dated/lived with your boo, or walked down an isle turned divorce, I provide you with the right tools to discover internal peace and recover well.
Men seeking mental health therapy is often unheard due to stigma and societal pressures. Raised Hispanic, men are often raised with the notion to "toughen up" and no express emotions. Emotions are then stored up/bottled up over the years. Overthinking, the ego, and suicidal ideation often creep up wherein men struggle to communicate thoughts and feelings. Here, I create a sacred space in order for men to be alleviated from their deeply rooted thoughts of self and their surrounding environments.
Have you ever asked yourself - "Who am I"? The areas of self-identity and self-esteem go hand in hand when exploring who you believe you are or perhaps the negative thoughts you've had about yourself. Have you given yourself grace? Self-compassion? Areas of who you are are explored while being empowered to believe there is only one of you in this world. In discovery your identity, boundaries are put into place (personal, relational, sexual, time, financial, environmental, emotional, verbal and spiritual). Boundaries are defined as guidelines and limitations we create to identify safe and permissible ways to other people to behave towards us and how we respond when those limitations are crossed. However, oftentimes, boundaries usually are not concrete because we unintentionally permit it so.
