Accepting new clients for in-person and telehealth. 

As we walk through life, experiences are constantly being added to our “backpacks.” Our backpacks, at times, feel particularly heavy and uncomfortable, subsequently making daily experiences feel burdensome. I see therapy as a space to take off your backpack - a time to empty its parts and explore them with curiosity and self-compassion, hopefully putting them back inside feeling a little lighter. During sessions, I aim to hold space for all parts of your backpack, carrying them with you in ways that are collaborative and affirming. 

My therapeutic approach is highly individualized, strengths-based, and eclectic. My sessions are typically informed by Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Internal Family Systems (IFS). I also utilize trauma-informed practices and mindfulness-based strategies, and I approach challenges from a harm reduction lens. I show up to sessions with authenticity, warmth, and humor, and I always look forward to adapting these values to each session’s unique vibe.

I work with teens, young adults, and adults, along with couples and families. I have experience working with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, OCD, mood cycling, simple & complex trauma, and relational stress. In addition, I have helped many people who experience psychosis as well as those who struggle with their relationship to substances and related behaviors. 

Starting therapy can be a difficult and vulnerable experience, and I am here to hold space for any, and all, emotions with you. Don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions as you start, and continue, this journey of taking off your backpack. All inquiries are welcome.

Starting therapy can be scary. Being vulnerable with a stranger takes a lot of courage and dedication. This is especially true if you are someone prone to privacy, logic or reason–or, perhaps you grew up thinking you need to hide your feelings in an effort to appear “strong.”

My own therapy journey has taught me that being in tune with your emotions doesn’t make you weak. In fact, it helps you become stronger than you could ever know. I’m here to help you discover the same for yourself.

We don’t learn in school how to work through significant transitions, make important life decisions, or build meaningful relationships. I want to support you through all of the challenges that get thrown your way. We will work together to practice compassion towards yourself, getting out of your own head, and appreciating all the joys and difficulties we experience simply by being human.

It’s important to me to create a safe and welcoming environment where anyone can feel free to talk about anything. My passion is to help you learn more about who you are and what matters the most to you. My hope is to guide you towards an even more evolved version of yourself–a version you may not have known could exist.

I’m currently accepting new clients both in person and virtually. You can reach me at

“We are born in relationship, we are wounded in relationship, and we can be healed in relationship”. This quote by Harville Hendrix, also stated similarly by other psychological and spiritual thought leaders, concisely articulates the core reason I believe therapy can be so transformative. At the root of all the benefits therapy can provide, beneath the necessary treatment planning, assessment tools, psycho-education, and therapeutic strategies, lies the key ingredient to successful therapy- relationship. Which is why I am passionate about building genuine, trustworthy, and purposeful relationships with my clients, and equally passionate about individuals finding the right therapeutic fit, whether it be with me or someone else! 

That being said, I generally work with adults and adolescents, age 13 and up. I delight in working with clients from various backgrounds and cultures, as I have a deep appreciation for the diversity of the human experience, and strive to approach each individual with humility and a sincere desire to understand. My clinical work is largely concentrated on supporting individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, panic, grief, as well as those working through past or current trauma, navigating difficult life transitions, relationship issues, or struggles with identity. 

I consider it my role to provide a safe space for my clients to process, to identify themes in their thoughts/emotions/behaviors, to make meaningful connections, and challenge self-defeating beliefs, all while we work collaboratively towards the specific goals they have for themselves. Ultimately, my hope is to assist my clients in developing a healthier ññrelationship with themselves and the world around them. Working from an integrative approach, I take into account one’s WHOLE self: mind, body, culture, spirituality, gender, etc..and often utilize techniques from CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), Person-Centered, and Solution-Focused frameworks. 

If you have any questions, or if you would simply like to connect and talk through what you are looking for in a therapist/ what you are looking to work through in therapy, I’d be glad to schedule a 15 minute consultation to see if I might be a good fit, or if I can at least offer some support in your search. You can reach me at or at 773-217-8409

As a therapist, I often liken the work we do together to the Japanese concept of kintsugi (literally “golden joinery”), which refers to both an art form and a philosophy. In the art of kintsugi, broken pottery is repaired and reinforced with a lacquer mixed with powdered gold, which incorporates the cracks into the pottery’s overall “look.” Similarly, the philosophy behind the art form centers on embracing imperfections, flaws, and changes as part of an object’s history. When they are highlighted instead of hidden, so-called imperfections can tell a story and highlight an object’s uniqueness. Kintsugi reminds us that while we cannot change the past, we can rebuild ourselves in transformational ways, and therapy can offer us a place to do this powerful inner work.

My therapeutic approach is informed by my own background in the arts, education, and community organizing. Working together, I aim to empower you to rebuild your life in line with what matters most to you using your own unique strengths, talents, and life experiences. In therapy, we'll dig to uncover what drives you. Maybe you have a passion for the arts, or you thrive on advocacy work. We'll talk about ways to bring more of that vibrancy into your life, and we'll figure out tools to help reduce your distress. 

As an LGBTQ+-, poly-, and neurodiversity-affirming therapist, I welcome and encourage exploration of gender, sexuality, race, religion/spirituality, and identity in the therapy room. No matter what concerns you bring to therapy, I will show up for you with my trademark warmth, acceptance, sincerity, and even a dash of dry humor when the moment calls for it.

Now more than ever, therapy can be an important way to build connection and restore your sense of well-being. I am currently accepting new individual clients ages 14+ for both virtual and in-person sessions. If you are ready to get started, you can reach out to me at

Seeking therapy is a courageous investment in your wellness.  Our need for purpose and connection can be frustrated by experiences of invalidation, trauma, and loneliness, as well as systemic injustices like racism, gender-based oppression, and economic disparity. 

I’ve had the opportunity to engage with clients from a diverse array of cultural identities regarding a range of issues like work-stress and career-transitions, anxiety, depression, imposter syndrome, family-of-origin dynamics, and other challenges related to the ups and downs of living. I have worked with clients ranging in age from late-teens to 60s, and have extensive experience working with folks navigating challenges of early adulthood.  Together, we can explore, process, and strategize new ways to experience and interact with the world.    

My work with clients is influenced by a range of person-centered, trauma-informed, and evidence-based approaches.  I’ll work collaboratively with you to find a combination of perspectives, metaphors, and strategies that feel relatable, workable, and appropriate for your needs and goals.

I am accepting new clients virtually and welcome all inquiries. You can reach me at or ‪(224) 999-0342‬.




Therapy is a way of approaching those life challenges that sometimes appear overwhelming or confusing. By putting words to those feelings, you can begin to unravel patterns of behavior,  relationship dynamics and decision making processes, thus allowing for meaningful change.


Therapy takes place in a supportive, non-judgmental space where we work to explore and reflect on the thoughts and feelings you are experiencing. My approach is based on your singular circumstances and the questions you may have about your life.


I am an experienced bilingual (Spanish-English) psychotherapist who works with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, substance use, life transitions (immigration, divorce), parenting challenges, grief and many other concerns. Therapy can take place in Spanish and/or English.

I am accepting new adult clients and welcome all inquiries. You can reach me at or at 773-257-3546.

Stepping into therapy and choosing a therapist takes courage and I applaud you for taking the first steps! I believe you deserve healing and wellness as well as a partner to walk alongside you in your journey. Meaningful healing requires connection and community with others, and you do not have to do this alone. As your therapist, I’ll help you increase your awareness and understanding about what change is desired and necessary for you to get to a healthier place and create a path (or paths) to get you there. Through my own lived experiences and therapeutic work, I have learned what it means to have a safe space to be myself, be accepted, and what it feels like to be seen and heard; I promise to hold a similar space for you.


I work with individual clients, ranging in age from adolescence to adulthood, who come from many backgrounds and communities and struggle with anxiety, depression, life transitions, adolescence, simple and complex trauma, grief, and various identity issues. I love to help clients learn new ways to handle the stressors that life throws them as well as shift the unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving that may have developed over time. I welcome my clients through a multicultural lens and use a therapeutic approach that incorporates EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), and Strengths-Based Therapy.


If you are ready to begin your healing journey and want a therapist who is curious, honest, direct, affirming, creative, and infuses fun into therapy – reach out to me! I see clients in-person and virtually and inquiries can be sent via email to or phone at (224) 999-1369.

I acknowledge that one’s healing journey is not linear because it takes time, work, having plan B when plan A doesn’t work out the way we hoped it would go, having plan C for plan B, etc. Most importantly, the need to develop some kindness and compassion with yourself to work through feelings or experiences that feel complicated, messy, or misunderstood.


As your therapist, I will listen to you with “ting” – a Chinese symbol that embodies listening with not only eyes and ears but with the mind, heart, and soul. My hope is to create an affirming and safe space for you to explore and vocalize your needs (crying and cursing allowed) as we work together to get you to a better place mentally, emotionally, or spiritually in whatever way you want to define that better. This is your healing journey and you are the expert of your life – I will be there to help guide you to find what you need to accomplish any goal you’d like to set for yourself. Together we will explore your strengths and areas for potential growth, identify your values, while getting insight or process things you’ve been through, and learn new skills for healing or transforming into your better, authentic you.


As someone who has faced many adversities, life challenges, has had their own struggles with physical health, born with Cerebral Palsy among other things, and mental health – I completely get how hard it is to not only ask for help but the challenges and the courage it takes to be vulnerable enough to ask for help from others – even, from yourself. I have years of experience working with a wide array of people of different lived experiences, and communities such as youth and adults (TGNC, cis gender men and women) living with HIV, sex workers, folx who experienced homelessness, have substance use issues, or co-occurring health issues as well as migrant communities.  


Additionally, I like holding a safe and nonjudgmental, sex, body-positive space to talk about different areas of sexuality and sensuality. TGNC, consensual non-monogamy and polyamorous, kink, “pro-hoe” affirming.  I acknowledge that many individuals have experienced some form of trauma or harm; from family of origin to other communities they are a part of (including religion). Unlike traditional mental health providers, I use trauma-informed, harm reduction approach to culturally stigmatized issues such as substance use, self-harm, and other survival strategies. I hold affirming and safe space to talk about living with a disability, both invisible and visible disabilities, or chronic illness. Other areas of specialties include identity development, bicultural lived experiences, depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, grief/loss, adjustment disorders, stress management, and life transitions. 


I am skilled in providing both individual and couples therapy as well as writing gender affirming surgery letters and emotional support animal letters. 


I was born in Chicago and am of Mexican and Guatemalan descent. Ofrezco terapia en español.
