Evelia Ilarraz, LCSW, RYT

Preferred Name: Evelia

About Me

I identify as a biracial, bicultural woman of color, born and raised in the Bay Area, and a daughter of immigrants. I encourage the exploration of past experiences and cultural and family stories in order to better love ourselves. Therapy is a place where you can uncover any barriers that may be limiting your relationship with others and, most importantly, with yourself. When we can access and understand our inner thoughts and emotions, we become empowered to make better choices, love fully, and live lighter. I am keen on working with clients with trauma and helping them to uncover how our bodies and minds store traumatic experiences. Exploring the influence of our past experiences and cultural and family stories on how we love and see ourselves and love and see others is a vital part of my work.
