It can be challenging and perhaps intimidating to ask for what you need when feelings of guilt and shame consume your thoughts, emotions, and influence your behaviors. This can result in feelings of frustration, unable to trust self and others, avoiding uncomfortable situations/emotions, and feel at a loss. Sometimes you may feel like the people and places you have counted on have wronged you and led you to believe that who you are is not what is expected of you and may feel like your voice has been stripped away. Which may result in you hiding your ability to express yourself and form/maintain relationships with others.
I believe the therapeutic relationship should be honored on the foundation of respect, mutual collaboration, & mutual trust. I believe in a therapeutic environment that is biological, social, cultural, psychological, & spiritual. I bring in my lived experiences as a first-generation Mexican-American, queer woman, daughter, sister, & human self into practice.
With your permission, together we can work on the impacts of how your intersectionalities and lived experiences help create meaning, connection, and intentionality in your life.
