I consider the patient’s cultural background in my assessments and I can provide treatment in Spanish, Portuguese, French and Italian.

There are many reasons one seeks help. The fit between the person and the clinician is the first step in the process of working on one's problems. Trust yourself to seek for those factors in the therapist that are important to you. Keep in mind that the art of medicine can not be taught but that the knowledge base and experience of the therapist has to be a required fundamental factor in your decision. The helping profession is composed by good dedicated people. What I want you to know about me is this: I practice what I do.
