Hello! Hola! Chao ban!
You may have landed here because…
-You are looking for a gender affirming/LGBTQ knowledgeable psychologist for psychotherapy and/or psychological testing for your child, teen or for yourself. (Usted está buscando un psicóloga que tiene experiencia con temas de lesbiana, gay, bisexual, o transgenero para terapia o pruebas psicológicas para su hijo, adolescente o para usted mismo)
-You are in a period of transition (could be with your gender identity, your relationship status, your career prospects, etc) and despite being insightful and intelligent; you can’t seem to “figure it out” on your own
-You are tired of feeling sad, anxious, worried and not yourself. You want to re-discover the joy that you know is inside of you
-You are unable to communicate with your teen. What happened to the kid that used to talk to you and share things with you?
-(insert YOUR reason)
My specialties include the intersections of gender (cisgender, transgender, gender non-binary, agender, your own gender), culture (racial, ethnic, familial, religious) and language (not just limited to English, Spanish and Vietnamese but the language and vocabulary that we use speak to ourselves) and the impact of these potentially conflicting layers on our mental health and emotional well-being.
I am trained to work with children, adolescents and young adults in a clinical setting; however I believe we all have an inner child that may need some tending to.
It can be scary to reach out. But as a professional, I strive to answer your questions and will provide you with referrals if I believe there are other providers who will be a better fit for you due to their expertise and your needs.
Please know you are not alone and there are resources out there for you and your family.
