How I Work With Students

My approach to understanding mental health wellness is to strengthen the existing resilience of individuals from a social justice lens. I believe that individual and community wellness are deeply connected and can be available to us when we create and nurture empowering, radical, and liberating narratives. I aim to work in collaboration with people in a supportive, warm, and welcoming manner. 

I am inspired by Liberation Psychology. This means I aim to understand the impact of sociopolitical factors on health and focus on your strengths and goals to help you cocreate healing and wellness. I use evidence-based methods and draw from critical race theory, decolonial thought, activism, and community organizing to explore the intersection of wellness, healing for self and community transformation.   

About Me

I was born in Mexico City and immigrated to the U.S. at the age of 7.  I was the first in my family to graduate from high school and go to college. I love all the beautiful culture that the Bay Area has to offer and was gifted with the opportunity to have grown up in San Francisco.
