The curious paradox is when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. What I am is enough if I would only be it openly.”  Carl Rogers.

Meet Emilce
I'm an Intuitive Afro-Latinx psychotherapist & healer ready to support you in your journey to lasting transformation and embodiment of your true self, however that looks for you.

I am an immigrant from Colombia and have been living in New York for about 20 years. My pronouns are she/her/ella. Working as a psychotherapist has been a wonderful gift. After more than 14 years, it is still an honor and a joy to witness the growth and transformation in the people I have the privilege to work with.

“The curious paradox is when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change. What I am is enough if I would only be it openly.”
This quote from Carl Rogers is at the core of my work as a psychotherapist and healer. I believe that the path to healing begins with the experience of being truly seen and celebrated for all of your identities and parts that make up the whole of you. My journey of healing has been filled with beautiful people and experiences, both personally and professionally, that have allowed me to arrive where I am today. The triumphs and the struggles, all of it, has made it possible for me to see and celebrate who I am. 
I make space to process the effects of trauma, unloving experiences and any form of personal or social oppression. I am honored to partner with you in navigating the relationship with yourself, others and the world in a more integrated and authentic way.

A Holistic Approach to Psychotherapy

I have formal training in contemporary psychodynamic and humanistic psychotherapy, attachment theory and trauma informed care with a social justice lens. My modality and style of treatment is also informed by Internal Family Systems (IFS), mindfulness therapy and my understanding of how trauma and painful experiences affect both the mind and the body. I offer an affirming and collaborative space for exploration of Self and moving beyond the unloving narratives that get in the way of embodying your true Self.


I also offer Transpersonal Counseling. The term transpersonal refers to the spiritual and transcendent aspects of the human experience. This service is beneficial for those interested in the connection and integration of mind, body and spirit. 


Maya  Angelou used to say, "We delight in the beauty of a butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." I believe that your true Self wants to become the butterfly and that my purpose is to accompany and assist you in your caterpillar’s journey, however that looks for you. So, I congratulate you on this step of your journey and I look forward to meeting you!
