My therapeutic style is warm, authentic, and interactive. I create a comfortable and non-judgmental working environment for my clients, using empathy, honesty, and a sense of humor. I approach each individual treatment collaboratively - establishing treatment goals that are tailored specifically to the individual client's needs. My clients gain understanding and insight that help alleviate symptoms and create positive life changes. Because the way we think affects the way we feel, I help my clients learn how to identify and challenge negative thinking. These practical skills enable them to maintain the level of progress they make during therapy.

Todos en algún momento podemos sentirnos abrumados, agotados y perturbados emocionalmente por alguna lucha psicológica como puede ser depresión, ansiedad, estrés-postraumático, historia de abuso sexual, baja autoestima, y duelo, entre otros, impactando la calidad de vida personal, familiar, de pareja, social o laboral. Todo esto puede ser aliviado y mejorado mediante un proceso efectivo de psicoterapia. Comencé mi carrera en Colombia como terapeuta clínica en 1997 y hace 4 años migré a este bello país. Proporciono terapia individual, terapia de pareja y terapia sexual.

Are anxiety, anger, alienation, sadness or confusion causing you to feel overwhelmed trapped or hopelessly thwarted in reaching your goals? Or do you feel a deep longing for change? The call to deepen your understanding of yourself, of others and your situation is often signaled by negative thoughts, painful feelings, or a work or relationship crisis. The opportunity to talk with someone who is accepting and takes a practical approach restores hope, rekindles desire, resolves conflict, and directs the flow of energy towards positive movement.

My experience is with adults, couples and families; my emphasis is outcomes looking at what works and what doesn't. My specialty is eclectic - using science and paradigms to effect change.

I focus on empowering you and your family to heal, cope, recover, and grow. My vision is that relationships form the basis for a balanced life. The concept of family therapy is almost simple. The idea is to consider the entire family/community context of how we develop, manage choices, and build relationships. For example, when working with children, I also include parents and siblings along the way. I will often even consider history as far back as the womb, e.g. was your mom anxious or stressed during her pregnancy with you? It is an adventure that you will author.
