Therapy with Me
Are you feeling disconnected with communty and are unsure of how to identify? Are you easily triggered by things your family members do that you know is unhealthy? *cough machismo and mariansmo. Do you feel guilty when setting boundaries with mama o papa? Are you trying to practice living authentically but it feels too scary so you resort to pleasing la familia instead? Are you trying to "do you" but feel pulled back by cultural and gender expecations? Unsure of how or where to start or what it looks like to live listening to your inner soul?
I help Black, Indigenous, Chicanx, Latinx people navigate first generation experiences, life transitions, physical and sexual trauma, generational and cultural differences (age, family roles, religion) and traumas. These sorts of life experiences can cause us anxiety, overwhelm, shame, self doubt, sadness, fears, and sometimes, even engaging in behaviors or relationships just to try and cope.
We identify the impact of your struggles so that you can recreate the narrative of your life and begin to walk in authenticity, self love, courage (no more oldest child roles or family pleasing duties!).
I will guide you through discovering your own healing. Because yes you already have it in you.
