Professional support from anywhere in the world.
If you’re struggling with understanding who you are in this world or where you belong, you are not the only one. Being a daughter of immigrants may leave you feeling excluded and struggling with your identity. Culture clash is real. Maybe you don’t feel at home in your own country because you are treated differently. Or maybe you struggle with the high expectations of immigrant parents. All of this can take a toll on your mental health and I’m here to help with that.
As a Certified Online Therapist, I want to help you unbox the trauma you have been carrying, lift the weight of the depression, and manage the anxiety you may be battling with. My goal as a therapist is to give you the tools and resources you need so that you know how to manage when life gets hard. I provide a safe space for you to go through the healing process you need and talk about the hard things going on in your life. You can come to me with anything as with me you will have a judgement free zone to process any heavy incidents such as racial trauma, microagressions, domestic violence, workplace harassment, sexual abuse, eating disorders, or anything else that you may be struggling with.
I use a variety of techniques and approaches as I believe there is not a one size fits all for healing. I have a myriad of tools in my toolbox to help you find what works for you. I work from a trauma informed lens and use techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Brainspotting, Mindfulness, and Inner Child work.

Frequently Asked Questions
I have a master’s in social work degree from Arizona State University. I am American and grew up in Chicago but most recently lived in Phoenix prior to moving to Australia two years ago. My heritage is Mexican which is why I have native fluency in English and Spanish. I have worked in social services for many years with diverse populations ranging from homeless students, immigrants, unaccompanied migrant children, children in foster care, domestic violence victims, families, international students, individuals with disabilities, and expats. Most recently prior to opening my own private practice, I worked as a therapist for immigrants and helped them adjust to the daily struggles of arriving in a new country, process past trauma, and work on inner healing.
You can make an appointment on this website and then we will have a video call via Zoom, a HIPAA compliant and secure platform. If you are not comfortable with video, there is an option within Zoom to just do a voice call.
As a digital nomad working with clients in different time zones, I am flexible with my hours. You can shoot me a message and let me know what time zone you are in at the time and we can figure out the best time to chat. You can also book an appointment online directly. However, if you don’t see the time slot you want, feel free to send me a message and I may be able to work with you.
I offer a 20 minute initial consultation call for $15 AUD because research has shown that the quality of the relationship between a client and a therapist is one of the most important variables for success in therapy.. If you are comfortable with me in our initial call and want to go forward with therapy, every session after that is $185 and will last 50 minutes. However, if you book a package, each session will be $180. When you choose to start therapy and begin the healing process, you are making an investment in yourself and prioritizing your health and wellbeing is a step you should be proud of making.
Therapy is of great benefit to everyone in my opinion, regardless if there are presenting problems or not. Therapists are trained to listen without bias or judgement. We are not here to tell you what to do, but to help you process your choices and make a decision you are comfortable with. Therapy can help you learn about yourself and grow as a person. However, for those with presenting problems, it can be extremely beneficial to speak with a mental health professional. Do you feel sad or depressed? Is it hard to get out of bed most days or do simple tasks? If you struggle with feelings of emptiness or a lack of purpose, it may be time to talk to a therapist. If you often feel anxious or even have panic attacks it is best to start therapy. Perhaps you recently lost a loved one, are experiencing grief after a heartbreak, or have lost the job that gave you purpose. Life transitions can be difficult but they are made easier with the help of a mental health professional to guide you through the darkness. If you have experienced a trauma recently or in the past, it is never a bad time to talk to a therapist about it to begin the healing process. Please note that online counseling can not provide adequate support in all cases. Some problems, particularly acute psychological crises, require a personal and long-term contact. Please refer to psychotherapists in your home town in those cases.
