I am a psychotherapist as well as Shamanic Reiki Practitioner who provides traditional psychotherapy combined with Shamanic interventions and Reiki healing. My psychotherapeutic framework is short-term, problem solving, and goal oriented with a lot of compassion and kindness.
My Shamanic training is mostly learned from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies' (FSS) Core Shamanism, such as soul retrieval, extraction, and divination, I also utilize dream journeying as a Shamanic intervention to help clients. Clients decide what interventions are appropriate and needed. Traditional psychotherapy without Shamanic or Reiki interventions is available.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who has worked for almost 27 years as a medical/psychiatric social worker in Los Angeles County. I obtained my MSW from UCLA. My practice is based on ethical guidelines and firm boundaries in order to create a safe trustworthy space. I am a 2nd generation Mexican-American who grew up in Los Angeles, I speak English and Spanish. I studied and continue to study with the FSS. I consider myself a Dream Shamanic Practitioner and use dream journeys as I work with my Helping Spirits on the best interventions for clients. During some sessions I rattle and drum to journey to my Helping Spirits for assistance.
Normally I see clients in individual in-person sessions but unfortunately, at this time due to COVID-19, I only offer video conferencing for remote sessions and distance healing via Zoom, FaceTime or Whatsapp. I only accept cash or payment via PayPal, Apple Pay, and Zelle. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
