MSW, LSW

Psychotherapist

Fiorella is a Peruvian American and non-binary trans therapist who believes that therapy should be accessible to everyone. Fiorella strives for therapy to be healing by ensuring that the therapeutic relationship is collaborative between the client and the clinician. Their client-centered approach, which relies on psychodynamic and strengths-based modalities, makes sure to employ queer-affirming, trans-affirming, and radical vulnerability practices in their trauma-informed care. For Fiorella, this trauma-informed care means participating in a harm-reduction, anti-fat, and anti-racist approach.

 

Fiorella has experience in individual and group therapy with queer and trans people, including youth of color, as well as neurodivergent and chronically ill folks. Their background is in treating complex trauma, depression, anxiety, gender dysphoria, and body dysmorphia. Other areas of interest are non-monogamy, sex positivity, executive dysfunction, intergenerational trauma, and disability justice.
