Nemi reminds us to honor our ancestors and to retrieve from them what is nurturing, healing, and necessary for our life journeys. Nemi reminds us that we are all connected – to each other, to the earth, to our past and to our future.
To us, Nemi means mental health care for everyone.
Nemi comes from a Nahuatl word meaning “to live.”
At Nemi, we advocate for and participate in Land Back and reparations. Healing must start at the root.
We acknowledge that differences inevitably exist between us, and we embrace the journey of learning from you and from each other. Our hope is that we can all welcome new understandings of ourselves with familiarity, love, and imagination.
MEET YOUR THERAPIST
Beth is a client-centered, psychodynamic therapist trained at Columbia University in New York. She holds both an MA and MSEd in Mental Health Counseling. Her work is informed by queer theory, mind-body connections, and intersectionality. That means she works with you to understand what’s inside of you, what’s outside of you, and how they overlap and intertwine.
Our identities influence the ways in which we show up in the world and with each other. The identities that Beth brings into the therapy room are that of a detribalized, white-bodied, Xicana woman. There are parts of her that stem from both the colonized and colonizers. She acknowledges that she holds many privileges as a white-passing, able-bodied, straight-sized, femme person. She is proudly queer. She is an activist and advocate. And she can’t wait to meet you!
We embrace all parts of you and our community.
We acknowledge that, in the words of Audre Lorde, “there is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.”
We show up for you inside and outside of the therapy space. Systemic and political issues are mental health issues.
