Welcome! I am Gabriela (she|her|hers) and I provide adult therapy to folxs navigating their journey through pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting. Transitioning to parenthood is life-changing. It provides an excellent opportunity for self-reflection that can lead to growth & create a time to heal our inner child. The daily demands of parenthood leave us feeling lonely, imbalanced, tired, depressed, anxious, dissatisfied, and irritable. Other factors such as grief and loss, role transitions, and interpersonal relationships can impact our balance as a parent. Being human is complex and you don’t have to figure it out alone. Give yourself the gift of time.

I enjoy seeing my clients utilize learned techniques that support them in reducing negative thoughts, increasing effective communication, and remembering their self worth.

As a Woman of Color, I have learned that in order to support my Chinese Mexican children, my lens has to be one that acknowledges the systems and structures that impact families during this vulnerable perinatal period. I enjoy seeing my clients stay true to the richness of their cultures and honor their values, despite the messages received from the dominant culture and thrive via their parent-child relationship.

Do any of the below scenarios sound familiar?

You love your child, but at times may get frustrated finding yourself engaging in negative behaviors towards your child or problematic ways of coping

You wonder why you feel so angry or “triggered” by your child’s behavior

You want to respond in a gentle, loving, and understanding manner, but at times are not sure how. Unaware of how to repair the relationship.

Trying to figure out what self care means to you

You feel stuck and wanting to feel better and do better

The truth is...

...parenting is hard and everything that comes along with expecting a child can be challenging.

Navigating information from the dominant culture, family, friends, co-parenting, and social-media feels overwhelming and confusing.

You don’t have to do this alone and you deserve support.
