I have worked with diverse couples, families and children -in English and Spanish languages-for many years treating adoption, trauma, family conflicts, oppositional behaviors, anger, and mood disorders.

I am adept at working compassionately to draw agreement and understanding. I am a great advocate and will fight hard to secure needed resources for my clients.

Some of the areas I work with are trauma, abuse, grief and loss, attachment/adoption issues, anxiety, depression, and marital/family struggles.
My goal in working with clients for the last 17 years has been to improve the social and emotional well-being of people who experience life-disrupting challenges. Helping people heal through self-awareness, resolving conflicts, strengthening relationships, and finding peace are all part of that journey. I provide a confidential, comfortable, and safe setting for people to share their personal thoughts and feelings.

I Specialize in TRAUMA/PTSD, ADOPTION, and ADDICTION. Past difficulties can affect us deeply and can affect our ability to connect with people, control our emotions, and can lead to constant anxiety and hopelessness. This can lead to a deep disconnected feeling from ourself and also lead to various addictions. Most therapists try to help clients manage a trauma or addiction. I focus on helping you heal the origin of the problem. If you want to get rid of a weed you don't just trim the top you have to pull it out by the roots.
