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 adults who want to heal from their experiences.
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.
