What is Holistic Therapy?

I practice a combination of different modalities with my clients, and have created a therapeutic style that moves away from only using the classic approach of verbal processing, and takes the whole human being into account — which means your physical, energetic, and emotional body. These modalities include Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Compassion-Focused Therapy, ancestral healing, shadow work, as well as using tools I’ve gathered from my extensive yoga + meditation trainings, such as visualization, guided imagery, somatic (or in-body) exercises, Ayurvedic principles, and yogic principles of wellness. All of this is supported by several degrees in Psychology and Counseling, and hundreds of hours of continued education in psychotherapy training. The alchemy created by these different approaches allows the work to get really deep, really fast — creating a clear path towards healing and a life that is more aligned with your most authentic and highest self.

This collaborative journey together will involve not just investigating the root of your struggles, but also focus on the present manifestations of them, and what changes can be made to help you live a more productive and authentic life today.

I focus heavily on clarifying your own unique values, and figuring out what behaviors or thought patterns are blocking you from freely moving towards these values. Together, we will cultivate better coping strategies, recognizing areas in your life where you can begin to take back control from habitual or reactive behaviors -- all while heavily infusing the process with self-compassion and acceptance. Through guided imagery and visualization, we will also focus on in-body experiences, and feel what it's like to be fully present with what is going on internally. You’ll also receive homework and out-of-the-office practices to help deepen your work, and to appease the parts of us that want the therapy process to feel tangible and productive.

By working collaboratively to create true acceptance of your authentic self, you can drop the struggle with your "messy" parts, embrace your personal truths, and bravely step into a life that is deeply reflective of all that you wish to embody.

A life that feels full, free, and so very YOU.

I specialize in working with:

  • women / women-identifying (ages 18 and older)

  • the girl boss : women looking for help around managing work, school, relationships, and/or personal development — all while running a side-hustle, maintaining a social life, and being active (phew). Kick-ass females who are seeking more balance, self-care, and wellness in their endlessly-packed schedules.

  • the spiritual seeker : the intuitive and emotionally attuned woman who dreams big, and doesn’t feel as connected to traditional paths of life. She seeks connection to a higher vibration, and craves more spiritual healing, grounding, and direction in her life.

  • the novice : females fresh out of high school or college, who are facing the gritty real world for the first time. They are searching for answers around their trajectory in life, and need help discovering their deepest purpose.

I also focus on:

  • relationship issues

  • anxiety + stress management

  • important life transitions

  • self-compassion + self-acceptance work

  • body image issues

  • spiritual + existential issues

  • creating healthy lifestyle habits

  • Latino cultural issues (se habla español)
