The (w)Holistic Story
This led me down the path of books and lectures written by spiritual teachers and mental health professionals who provided a holistic approach to healing mental, emotional, and physical ailments by implementing alternative health modalities.
My sense of self-awareness and introspection on emotional healing and wellness deepened not only in my personal life but also in understanding my clients’ emotions and behaviors. I witnessed the impact of the constant influences from our upbringing, past, and society that make it difficult to separate the thoughts and feelings that have been instilled into us that aren’t our personal truths from those that are and that get in the way of us caring and loving ourselves the way we ideally want to and deserve.
AND THAT’S WHAT AWAKENED HOLISTIC HEALTH, LLC IS ALL ABOUT
For 10 years, I’ve worked with diverse populations in the Tampa Bay Area, promoting mental health, self-care, and holistic wellness as a prevention and outpatient mental health counselor. I am a passionate lover of health, especially mental & emotional wellness, and integrated, alternative holistic modalities to improve your well-being.
I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Public Health, Master’s of Public Health in Behavioral Health, & I am a Master’s Certified Addictions Professional. Currently, I am studying towards getting my certification in shamanic energy medicine and additional energy healing practices to expand what services I can teach and provide to my students.
Outside of my work with my students, I love spending time with my friends, having new & fun experiences, traveling, & spending time outside. I am Dominican-American, which means I am fluent in Espanol and naturally want to move my hips to any music I hear. I am also an absolute foodie, band nerd, and pop-culture geek (you can find me at your locally held trivia night anytime, especially if karaoke is involved).
