About Me

I am a white & Latinx queer cis femme living with my long-term partner (who is a cis-man) and our toddler. I grew up bicultural and bilingual and have frequently traveled to South America both as a child and as an adult. I graduated with a Master's in Clinical Social Work from Smith College in 2015 and trained at the Duke University Counseling & Psychology Services, the Duke Hospital, and the Center for Child & Family Health in Durham. Before becoming a psychotherapist, I dabbled in different professional work including policy analysis and cooking.

I have studied and have personal practices in Evolutionary Astrology, Ayurveda, Ecstatic Dance, and Yoga. I have also trained in energy healing work and a specific modality of Ancestral Lineage Healing. My spiritual roots are in my connection to nature and community, social justice and liberation work, Quakerism, South American plant medicine tradition, and embodiment practices like dance, singing, and yoga. While I do not bring these practices and traditions explicitly into therapy work, I am very comfortable in the terrain of these areas.
