In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

Being raised within Mexican culture, mental health care has always been heavily stigmatized, making it incredibly difficult for me to reach out when I was struggling with debilitating anxiety. Despite my fear, and my father's disapproval, I made an appointment with a therapist and psychiatrist, and my life changed. I learned to overcome thought patterns that were holding me back, and I learned how to work with a brain that functions differently than I would like it to. I aim to help others have the experience and begin living the life we all deserve.

Work History

I began working as a medical social worker in the emergency department (ED) immediately after graduate school, and fell in love with crisis work. I found great meaning in having the privilege of supporting patients during difficult times, and being a source of information that could make their experience slightly less stressful and cold. A couple of months after starting in the ED, I began working at a sexual assault clinic on a per-diem basis. I developed a strong passion for supporting victims of sexual assault during their examinations, and acting as an advocate on their behalf with family, friends, and law enforcement. In early summer of 2021, I left the ED to work at the sexual assault clinic full-time as a therapist and crisis counselor. Shortly after, I opened my private practice in order to create a space where I can help people who struggle with additional mental health issues. I am committed to bringing quality mental health care to my fellow Latinas/os.
