Merrick, NY 11566
For more than 30 years, I have helped others to negotiate their pain and difficult circumstances with compassion, sensitivity, warmth, intelligence and kindness. My interdisciplinary approach respects an awareness of each person's individuality and their life history, as people tend to cope with their problems and situations depending upon who they are in the first place. My goal is to provide both support and understanding, and through listening well, to provide expert professional guidance in helping people to find their way.

Today’s pandemic has created emotional and physical stressors that challenge our ability to manage anxious feelings and angry impulses. Thankfully, even under these conditions, anger and anxiety management remain skills you can learn and practice. Though the feelings of anger and anxiety are universal, the expression of these feelings can vary, and thus can result in either positive changes or disastrous consequences for your personal relationships, physical well-being, or professional career.

As an English and Spanish speaking therapist, currently my private practice focus is working with Spanish-speaking clients and families applying for immigration and who need an evaluation for a Waiver, VAWA, asylum, U-Visa, or cancellation of deportation cases. I have a warm and empathic nature and create a setting where you can be yourself and be vulnerable. As someone who has experienced the challenges of immigration in my family, I understand the importance and gravity of the situation.

As individuals, we all face challenging and stressful times, anxiety and need someone to listen to or talk through our problems. Women, men, parents, siblings, spouses and children all need an outlet for support and someone to walk through the process with us. A non-judgmental ear, an effective listener and guidance can go a long way in this walk we call life. My approach is to be there as a support and to help my clients work through the life stressors and try to understand how the past can play a role in your current situation. Of course, all life's problems will not be solved but being able to talk it through is golden.

Anxiety, depression, anger, insecurities, and trauma can make even our simplest daily routine seem daunting and prevent us from living a full, happy life. Addressing the issues that contribute to these symptoms increases self-esteem, improves relationships, optimizes work/school performance, and helps with over-all quality of life—but it does not have to be done alone. Therapy can provide you with the support and tools you need to overcome challenges in these areas and live your life to your full potential.

When we honor our inner voice and play to our strengths, we thrive. However, peers, culture and society often show up as voices louder than our own, drowning intuition, and triggering fear. Fear is often described as the "fight or flight" response - fighting back against what's coming at you, or fleeing to avoid it. But there's a third response, to freeze, as in "to be paralyzed with fear." If you feel "stuck" and many people do, fear is probably at the center. At the same time, lifestyle, nutrition, and health history have a huge impact on mental health, and solutions are often easily found in nutraceuticals.

Therapy does not have to be a last resort for when your mental health deteriorates and/or life becomes unmanageable. Ideally, it is a space you enter in order to safely explore your thoughts and feelings about not only yourself, but the world around you without judgment. Therapy affords you opportunities to pinpoint what is important to you, and how you can take concrete actions to live with greater fulfillment, authenticity, and empowerment.

This is the transformative power of trauma therapy that focuses on relationships– it's about witnessing your entire life change before your eyes.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
