Work History

I'm a Peruvian psychotherapist that grew up in the city of Cudahy. I received my education from UCLA and USC. I advocate, motivate and educate on innovative healing to achieve a wholesome life. In treatment, I promote the importance of radical self-care and how this is what leads to emotional, mental, sexual, and physical health. My specialty is working with survivors of trauma. I help individuals navigate ancestral healing, generational and inter-generational trauma as well as other conditions that affect our mood, thoughts, and behavior. In therapy, I use a holistic and alternative approach that is sex-positive and inclusive of the LGBT+ and first-gen/ immigrant/Spanish-speaking community. I tailor treatment to each individual and offer a safe environment where I listen without judging you, motivate and engage you. I bring years of experience, good energy, and unique interventions with a charismatic personality. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
