Since 1992, I have counseled families, adults and children. I employ creative and traditional approaches with an emphasis on EMDR therapy to help clients master the challenges encountered in their lives. I received my PhD in international psychology with trauma focus. My specialties include Trauma and Attachment Disorders, for which I also offer Clinical Supervision. My immigration experience from Germany has prompted the exploration of the crucial part played by our cultural roots in our decision making process and in our lifestyle choices. I speak English, Spanish and German.
