Zarina Moreno, LCSW
Hola! I’m Zarina and I’m a big fan of discovering what makes you you. As a therapist, I want to help you find those things through humor, relatability, and holding a space where you feel comfortable showing up as yourself.
I’m originally from the Rio Grande Valley and was raised in Mexico, so I can relate to the challenges that come with being a person of the global majority in a new place while also trying to stay true to my roots. As a Latinx woman, I am passionate about providing trauma-informed and culturally sensitive services to people of the global majority (PGM) and multicultural/multiracial individuals.
As a first-generation Latinx therapist, I want to support those who have difficulty accessing therapy with someone who understands their language and culture. I enjoy working with folx who want to learn how to build healthy relationships with self and others through boundary work and self compassion, work through past trauma or difficult experiences, need extra support during hard times if they're experiencing anxiety or depression, or BIPOC folx wanting to explore deeper their cultural and identity formation. I also enjoy working with women who have experienced domestic and sexual violence and want to have a space to process and heal their traumatic experiences.
My approach comes from a relational-cultural, person-centered, and trauma-informed lens and you can expect me to utilize humor, strengthening the mind and body connection through somatic work and the integration of yoga, EMDR, psychoeducation, mindfulness, and prioritizing self through self-compassion and boundary work in our work together.
I highly value honesty, relatability, safety, trust, and humor. In my work, I strive to provide a space free of judgment and somewhere someone can show up as they are and still feel seen and heard so I aim to use my relatability, warmth, and humor to provide this space.
