Congratulations for getting here!
I am the founder and Chief Clinical Director of Blossoming Lotus Therapy LCSW PLLC. I founded this practice to help BIPOC & Queer folx find a space to be seen and safe.
I was born in Brooklyn, NY, but I call Queens, NY my home. I am a proud Queer Latina. I work hard to empower my communities and help them heal from traumatic experiences caused by others. I have co-authored in two books (Latinx in Social Work & Latinx en el area de Trabajo Social). Currently, I serve as an Adjunct Professor for SUNY Old Westbury & SUNY Stonybrook. I am also the NASW-NYC Chair of SOGIE Collective (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity & Expression) to assist social workers in providing equitable, LGBTQIA+ affirming services and resources to enhance their scope of practice.
I am a bilingual clinical social worker (English & Spanish) who has over ten years of social work experience in different capacities. My experiences range from working in a family homeless shelter, foster care settings, school settings, clinic settings and more. My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized service.
My specialities include working with non-monogamous folx, LGBTQIA+ folx and Kink folx. I provide a client centered, direct approach. I provide support and guidance to individuals and families on their journey to self-healing. I provide surgery support letters to help you become your most authentic self. I create a safe space for you. I look forward to connecting with you.
I specialize in issues surrounding trauma (sexual trauma & childhood trauma), the teenage years (haha), and family conflict using a somatic-oriented approach.
This is a safe place to begin blossoming. I look forward to connecting with you.
