"My therapeutic approach is based on the principal of honoring people’s complexities, where all aspects of oneself are welcome. Too often, as a survival strategy, we have to leave aspects of ourselves behind or allow certain aspects to take precedence over others. By developing greater awareness of all aspects of ourselves and bringing them all into dialogue, we are able to move toward a greater sense of wholeness. As a therapist, I am especially committed to supporting the Latinex and immigrant communities, as well as people who identify as queer, LGBTQQI-TS, gender-queer, gendervariant, and gender non-conforming."

"Regardless of your suffering, there is a way through it and because we each have our own way of processing emotional wounds, I take an individualized approach to help you transform pain into healing. I specialize in addressing trauma and grief. This includes the loss of a loved one, traumatic loss (event-related, developmental), as well as psychological symptoms associated with chronic and terminal illness. Through an integrated approach, my work is about healing the soul and finding light in the darkness despite facing life-threatening conditions afflicting the body, mind, heart, and spirit."

"Many individuals and couples approach me for therapy feeling they've hit a road block in their lives and are confused and frustrated in their attempts to grow beyond it. They are often uncertain - both about their capacity to change and about whether therapy can help. Couples may be hopeful or discouraged about transforming their repeated patterns of conflict or distance, but know that significant changes are needed if their relationship is to regain a sense of joy and strength. The art of therapy involves reaching beyond solving a particular problem and exploring the opportunites for growth embedded within it."

"Therapy can help a person grow, change and learn. It is certainly not the only way, but in my 15 years as a therapist I have witnessed how transformative the therapeutic process can be. This begins with the nurturing space that I help to provide, and your active participation in the process as we bring attention to your thoughts, feelings and behaviors that brought you into therapy. Typically, if it is a good fit between therapist and client, you will begin to feel some relief, and a sense of feeling better by the end of the first or second session."

"So uhm . . . can we be real here? Maybe just a little bit awkward searching for a therapist like this? Ah well. I guess that's just how we fancy 21st century folks do things. In addition let's admit that therapy is an odd endeavor. The way I envision it, psychotherapy is a series of fantastic conversations. Like ones you have with best friends in your closest moments, only with someone who isn't a best friend. And who also won't get judgy or give you simple but well-meaning solutions you've already thought of yourself. Bizarre!"

"*As of November 2018, I am accepting new patients* I believe that coming in for therapy is brave. I believe my approach reflects that. I was trained to use a psychodynamic approach as the foundation to understanding symptom development. For me, this means understanding the intricacies of child development and how the messages we carry from childhood shape our paths to well-being. Since practicing, my own therapeutic style has also taken form. This includes an intention toward flexibility, exploration, an increased sense of choice and confidence in intuition, a genuine feeling of validation, and empowerment."
