I came into the field because I wanted to be able to better understand myself and potentially provide a corrective experience for someone else. I believe that creating meaningful connection and community can increase positive sense of self.
Other interests of mine include painting, hiking, traveling and spending anytime outside.
Breath work and movement!
The Alchemist is one book that provides me with a different meaning each time I read it. I love the story line and how it encourages to trust in yourself and intuition.
I really like Latinx Therapy and the resources they provide. They have focused on providing resources to a community which may not otherwise have the resources.
I recharge by spending time with my family, when I can a sunrise or sunset will always do the trick.
I have one cat named Mable who was rescued and has a very funny personality.
