Hey there! My name is Evelynn and I look forward to hearing your story.
I work with people who really want to figure it all out! You know you can do a lot of things successfully, but keep coming back to a lingering feeling that something is off. At work or school, you might be wondering “Do I belong here?” and in relationships, you know you have so much more to say, but it feels hard to expose yourself. Those closest to you might think you have it all together, but you still find yourself feeling like not enough, and feel distracted by the feeling that you have to do more and BE more. You’re good at holding it all together for others, but this is becoming overwhelming, and want a space to untangle the thoughts. This feeling is exhausting, lonely, and frustrating and you’re probably ready to roll up your sleeves and dig a little deeper.
I support people with untangling all of the feelings and thoughts you have, that you know aren’t helping you. We’ll talk about you, your relationships, your family, what the past has been like, and where you want to be. We’ll build on the amazingness that you already have to manage that nagging feeling that you aren’t enough, and not doing enough. Let’s talk!
I am a Latinx woman (pronouns: she/her/ella), Mexican-American, born in California and a daughter, wife, and mother. Being a first generation lots-of-things, I get it! Showing up, and navigating new spaces can be overwhelming! I have been a practicing therapist in the Bay Area for the past 8 years and believe that therapy should be for everyone. People I work with say they appreciate that they don’t feel judged, and can talk about whatever is on their mind. You can expect for our sessions to sound like an actual conversation vs. feeling talked at, and many people I’ve worked with say they ended up feeling much more at ease than they would have expected.
I have practiced with a wide range of people including children, teens, adults, and parents with diverse backgrounds, on a variety of topics. I’m a social justice advocate, and passionate about working with people from marginalized communities to support healing in traumatized communities. Otherwise, I enjoy lots of coffee, cooking, spending time with my family, and time outside.
