Introduction

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a queer Latina therapist who supports those on the margins as they explore the intricacies of sex and sexuality. In addition to advanced training in sex and relationship therapy, I have a 12-year professional background in healthcare. I also have lived experience with chronic illness, sexual identity exploration and integration, coming out later in life, and parenting two LGBTQIA+ children. I provide inclusive and affirming care for all gender and sexual identities, ethnicities, and lifestyles.
