Life is full ups and downs. In my practice I will try and help you find those ups and get back there. I have extensive experience working with women issues, relationship issues, adopted children, trauma, family separation, anxiety, depression, sexual abuse,and parenting. I find it impactful to look at our family history and see how it has influenced us now. There are many studies that show that the most effective thing in therapy that determines positive progress is the rapport between you and the therapist. Finding who you connect with is essential, lets see if we could be a good fit. I speak Spanish and offer multicultural therapy
I have specialized training in trauma and utilize EMDR and IFS as my approach. I have several trainings in expressive therapies such as art and play therapy and am a Registered Play Therapist. I use a collaborative approach because I believe you are the expert in your life.
I began my career in 2010 working on skill building with families. Since then I have earned my Master of Family Therapy degree at Mercer University School of Medicine. I am a bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and would be honored to help you find your path to healing.
La vida está llena de altas y bajas. En mi práctica, intentaré ayudarte a encontrar esas altas y volver allí. Tengo experiencia con asuntos de mujeres, problemas de relación, hijos adoptados, trauma, separación de familia, ansiedad, depresión, abuso sexual y crianza de los hijos. En el proceso es importante mirar su historia familiar y ver cómo te ha influenciado ahora. Hay muchos estudios que demuestran que lo más efectivo en la terapia que determina el progreso positivo es la relación entre usted y la terapeuta. Encontrar con quién tú te lleves bien es esencial, veamos si nos conectamos bien.
Tengo entrenamiento especializado en trauma y utilizo EMDR (Desensibilización y reprocesamiento por medio de movimiento ocular) e IFS (sistema familiar interna) como mi enfoque. Tengo varios entrenamientos en terapias expresivas y tengo mi certificación en terapia de juego (RPT). Utilizo un enfoque colaborativo porque creo que tú eres el experto en tu vida.
Comencé mi carrera en 2010 trabajando en el desarrollo de habilidades con las familias. Desde entonces obtuve mi maestría en Terapia de Familia en el departamento de Medicina de la Universidad de Mercer. Soy terapeuta bilingüe licenciado en matrimonio y familia y sería un honor ayudarlos a encontrar su camino hacia la sanación.
