About Me

I am Carlina, licensed mental health counselor, and a stand for the recovery of survivors of gender and sex-related crimes. I have dedicated my life to working with survivors, providing tools, facilitating the process of recovery, and supporting the legalization of immigration status. I am all about results for your life and finding the most effective tools and strategies to help you thrive, and I am here to create a treatment protocol designed UNIQUELY for you. It’s time for you and the world to see the real you, not the you that you made up to feel and be safe. I love helping survivors because I get to witness firsthand the amazing capacity to recover. I believe that the miracle of becoming who we want to be is possible. I believe -truly believe- it doesn’t matter at all where you come from or better yet what you have been through. It doesn’t mean the road will be the same for everyone. Some of you will have a more challenging and difficult path ahead of you, but we all have the capacity to improve our lives.
