Bio

My name is Chris and I’m a therapist at Kirkland EMDR Counseling which is an inclusive teletherapy practice providing individual and relationship therapy in both English and Spanish for adults in Washington state. I specialize in the areas of anxiety, trauma, and relationships–integrating anti-racist and anti-oppression in the therapy experience.

Imagine feeling comfortable when making future plans without anxiety taking over. What if you could talk about your past with strength and resilience? Kirkland EMDR Counseling will work together with you to learn skills, gain insight into unhelpful thoughts and beliefs, and create new ways of being with yourself and others that allow you to feel confident, authentic, and calm.

You are the own expert in your own body and experience. Even if the wisdom is buried under fear and doubt, it’s there. My goal is to work collaboratively with you to learn skills and uncover the wisdom you already carry to reconnect with the creative, curious, playful and hopeful parts of yourself.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Washington State (License No. LW 611972). I identify as Latinx, immigrant, cisgender female and use she/her/ella pronouns. I have worked in the field of mental health since 2015 and I obtained my Master of Social Work in 2017 from the University of Washington. I work with individuals, couples / partners in the areas of anxiety, trauma, and relationships. EMDR and Emotionally Focused Therapy primarily used in therapy, but I include CBT, DBT Skills, and Mindfulness as well. I tailor therapy to you.

I have worked with various non-profit and community organizations throughout King and Snohomish counties such as WithinReach, New Beginnings, Swedish Family Clinic and Compass Health by providing resources, support around navigating medical systems, and therapy services.

Throughout the years, I have worked with  various populations including children, adolescents, families, adults, partners, BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities. I provide therapy in English and Spanish for individuals and persons in relationships, and gender affirming care to all my clients.
