Hello I'm Arlen. I'm a bilingual psychotherapist with 6+ years experience. I am dedicated to the wholeness of individuals and their relationships. I enjoy working with individuals as well as with couples who want to experience change and are ready to embrace their authentic self and experience healing and growth. So maybe you're feeling sad, angry, anxious, lonely, confused, stuck or so much more and don't know how to transition out of this space. Negative patterns in your personal life or your relationships are possibly leaving you feeling distressed or discouraged.It doesn't always have to be this way though.

"You look at me but you don't see me. What happened to us? Where are you when I need you?". Let's be honest: maintaining an intimate relationship is really difficult. Maybe things aren't going the way they used to and you wonder if things can get better or if your best days are already behind you. Perhaps you find your partner pulling away and it scares you. Despite your efforts to reach out and close the gap...nothing works. It's like bending over backwards just to feel a spark of intimacy and you start thinking "What's the point of staying in a relationship like this?". And it makes sense. But it doesn't have to stay that way.

During this difficult time of uncertainty, daily life can be filled with stress and anxiety. Your nights are restless with racing thoughts and your days are isolating and depressing. You turn on the TV and continue to hear reports on the increasing number of deaths and COVID infected individuals. Moreover, your relationship is not working. Your partner keeps doing or saying all the wrong things. He/she is distant and at times gets mad for no reason. You’ve tried everything but it keeps getting worse. You feel depressed and hopeless. Every time you try to talk, it turns into a huge fight. You don’t know what to do anymore...

Seeking therapy is one of the bravest things you can do. Accepting that you need help in resolving your struggles does not mean there is something "wrong" with you, but rather that you LOVE yourself enough to do what you need to do to get better. I look forward to developing a strong and safe relationship between us as I join you on your journey toward healing. I do this by working to understand you, your concerns, and your background, particularly those factors that may have shape who you are and may have contributed to your current problems.

Most of us go through difficult periods in our lives where we feel overwhelmed, alone, and confused. Sometimes, inevitable events in life, even happy ones, like starting a relationship, going off to college, or retirement, expose the wounds and memories from a recent or distant past that make the current situation painful and unbearable. While we survive those situations and adapt to the new realities of our circumstances, psychotherapy, specifically psychodynamic psychotherapy uses these moments as opportunities for a path for self-discovery and a chance to reevaluate our priorities and find meaning and purpose in our lives.

Life can feel overwhelming when you’re under constant stress, whether it be work-related, family conflict, relationship trouble, or dealing with your inner conflict and fears. Maybe you are not able to live your true authentic self because of the messages and values placed on you by your culture, religion, and society. You want to be seen and heard as your true genuine self and break free from the messages and values that chained you from living your full authentic self.

Do you tend to stress and endlessly worry about small to big decisions, the future, and what others think of you? The stress and anxiety prevent you from doing what you would truly like to do, and leave you exhausted, fearful, and stuck. Even when you are with other people, your doubts occupy your mind, and get in the way of your interactions with others. You may feel like others are judging you so you spend less and less time with them. The constant self-criticism brings you down, yet you do not know how to turn it off. You want to feel more at ease physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Hello Sweetheart! Something in your life isn’t working, is it? Unhealthy, even traumatic family/parent background. Mysterious blocks to the life you want. Unhealthy relationship patterns & lack of trust with parents, partners, friends & even yourself. Spiritual longing, but a troubled relationship with your higher power. Undue influence by a parent or parents who still have a strong impact over your life. Probably too much, if you’re being honest. Situations that lead you to sacrifice your own happiness for the good of the relationship,parent or family. Unbalanced emotions, buried for too long, then explode, or triggered easily.

Anxiety hurts. Whether it wakes you up in the morning and lingers all day or hits you like gang busters when you least expect it. Whether you know where it's coming from or not, anxiety tells you something is wrong and needs fixing. Anxiety is often tied to trauma and grief. You lose a person, relationship or perhaps a dream and you're left in a puddle of pain. Therapy is about working through grief and finding the courage to start again. You develop coping skills to feel better and communication skills to express your needs. You identify personal goals, and together, we chart your course toward your best and truest self.

Guidance from a professional outside of the current situation may provide necessary support to alleviate distress and find your path. To achieve this, I provide a warm and safe environment in which to explore areas of concern and strength.
