Most clients come to therapy because they feel stuck. Some of my clients have inner conflicts or trauma that prevent them from forming meaningful relationships. They also don't know which option to take when faced with tough choices. They are unsure if they want to stay or walk out. Life commitments, family dysfunction, and questions about their ability to do the right thing when faced with decisions are so challenging. Sometimes we get to a certain stage in our lives that we could use a professional to help us navigate uncertainties. And that is when I step in to work with you through your struggles.
I am a Relationship Therapist who specializes in helping adults repair attachment with partners, families, and with themselves. I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy and Gottman Level 1 and I specialize in infidelity and rebuilding of trust. I am also trained in EMDR and use it to help with bad memories, anxiety and difficult life choices.
I will never judge you or your situation and my hope is that you find peace and clarity. I am culturally sensitive and therapy can be in your native language of Portuguese, Spanish, or English. I offer evening and Saturday appointments. I provide clinical evaluations for Immigration cases. I look forward to your first contact and I return all my calls.
Mis clientes sufren de problemas de relación interpersonal con sus parejas. Han sido afectados por infidelidad y falta de confianza y de autoestima. En la casa con la familia, los problemas también están afectando a los hijos. Muchos de mis clientes tienen pareja de una cultura diferente y eso también ha traído malentendido y estrés. Algunos han sufrido traumas y eso traído demasiada ansiedad. Si Usted, su pareja o su familia están sufriendo emocionalmente, están pasando por um momento super difícil y necesitan ayuda ya que no han podido llegar a un acuerdo, o entender uno al otro, yo les puedo ayudar.
Ofrezco consejería para adultos y parejas. También ofrezco terapia en familia en un ambiente compasivo y seguro. Mis especialidades incluyen: recuperación después de infidelidad, mejoras en el apego de la relación, ansiedad, problemas de autoestima, dudas con escojas, consejería de parejas y traumas . Ofrezco terapia EMDR para alivio de traumas y ansiedad.
Espero poder ayudarle lo antes posible. Tengo experiencia com personas de culturas diferentes y brindo terapia en Inglés, Español o Portugués. Tengo casi 20 años trabajando en corporaciones en Estados Unidos. Ofrezco consultas después de las 5PM y a los Sabados (en persona o virtual). Espero su llamada para una consulta telefónica gratis.
A maioria dos clientes busca terapia porque se sentem desamparados. Alguns têm conflitos internos ou traumas que os impedem de formar sólidos relacionamentos. Eles também não sabem qual opção tomar quando confrontados com escolhas difíceis. Muitos não têm certeza se querem ficar ou largar seu parceiro, são impactados por compromissos de uma vida complicada, com conflitos familiares e dúvidas sobre a capacidade de fazer a coisa certa. Às vezes, chegamos a um determinado estágio de nossas vidas em que poderíamos recorrer a um profissional para nos ajudar a navegar essas incertezas. E é aí que eu posso te ajudar a sair desse conflito.
