Licensed Professional Counselor

Do you consider yourself an over-thinker? Introvert? Atypical or Alien? Do you have ADHD or wonder if you do? Are you overwhelmed with anxiety due to difficulty being your authentic self around others? Do you live an alternative lifestyle? Are you having trouble adjusting? Are you a digital nomad?

My Approach

I am an ADHD specialist also treating co-ocurring disorders such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and relationship issues. I serve clients across the gender spectrum, with a sex-positive approach & am an Altsex/Kink/Poly-Friendly clinician. I am also LGBTQ+ affirming & vegan affirming, provide support to social activists, sex workers, veterans, minorities, & am Spanish speaking. I work with clients on adjusting to new responsibilities & roles, personal growth, & determining the root cause of your distress. I will also teach you to silence your loud inner critic. I am both directive and non-directive; easy to talk to, but will call you out if you're being inauthentic, self-deprecating or self-sabotaging. I use various therapeutic & coaching techniques, & provide education on your symptoms. My techniques are accompanied by humor & rapport building to ensure our relationship is a trusting one, so you can be honest without feeling judged. Video sessions offered!

My Background

I am a Bilingual (English/Spanish) Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Oregon. I hold a Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology completed at Albizu University in my native state of Florida, and am currently pursuing licensure as a Clinical Psychologist in the state of Oregon.
