Choosing the right therapist is very important. The decision to start therapy is a courageous first step towards your journey of understanding and healing. I aim to provide support to anyone that chooses to take that journey in an empathic, reflective and non-judgmental approach. I have worked with people struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD, and life's transitions. I am also bilingual and have many years of experience providing services in Spanish. I mostly have experience in existential-humanistic psychology, psychodynamic, relational/attachment based psychotherapy and somatic psychotherapy.

We can all have periods of loneliness in our lives where the path forward appears hidden and our relationships create feelings of uncertainty or confusion. You might find yourself in more arguments, or becoming more critical of yourself, while you are unsure as to why the arguments began or why the self-criticism continues. For some: patience, tolerance and forgiveness are gifts easily shared with others but are nearly unthinkable when engaging with yourself. Maybe, you are simply wishing things “Could just go back to the way they were before” or “Just be easier”.

I believe that one of the most important factors for successful therapy is the "fit" between therapist and client. I have been told by some of my clients that they like my direct style, interactive manner, and the feeling of being heard and seen. They like my Russian proverbs and humor. In both individual and couples therapy, I strive to bring out the best, wisest, kindest, flexible, most functioning adult parts of my clients to the surface. Through therapy, my clients get insight, make better choices and enjoy feeling more in charge of their lives.

*Virtual Sessions Available* Does your kid or teenager often say NO, I DON’T CARE, or YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. You see them struggling with anxiety and depression, or risky behaviors such as using drugs, and don’t know what to do. You might also have gifted children or teenagers who are struggling with perfectionism-obsession-procrastination (POP). Are you high functioning and having a stable job but yet have symptoms, feelings, and behaviors that are difficult to explain in the context of your life experiences? Are you often in a relational pattern where you do things out of fear, obligation, and guilt (FOG)?

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” —Viktor Frankl. Suffering comes in many forms. Mainly, I believe it comes from how we relate to ourselves and to others. I hope to help you develop tools and insight to manage challenges and stressors to help you learn how to suffer less. My goal is to get to know the essence of who you are and understand how your life and experiences have brought you to this moment.

Loss of self and self-doubt can manifest in young people as anxiety, depression, burn out, anger, and more. Highly sensitive children and teenagers are especially vulnerable right now to struggles with these symptoms and may need guidance to (re)discover their purposes and passions. I help adolescents and adults become congruent with their best selves. This in turn leads to increased knowledge of self which can lead to increased self-esteem and a satisfaction with the world around them.

Living life in peace can be challenging when suddenly you are confronted with unexpected change...relationship status, health, recovery from loss, trauma and/or addiction. The truth is life is full of change, and the challenges we face often impact the quality of our connection to ourselves and others. I offer confidential, compassionate, effective care by combining the best of traditional psychotherapy with a progressive integration of mindfulness, for a wide range of issues we find ourselves faced with in modern life. A dual approach that encourages healing, connection, focus, and personal growth.

As a psychotherapist, I work with individuals and couples addressing issues such as relationship stressors, self-esteem, stress management and self-awareness. Often, people think that being referred to or seeking MFT services means that there is something "wrong" with them, but this is not what marriage and family therapy is about. My approach looks at problems within a relational context, not as problems that lie within the person. I will explore risks and challenges, as well as strengths and resources, to assist individuals and families in managing the particular issues they are facing.

You are so worried about your child. She cries everytime you drop her off at preschool and she is so shy at birthday parties that she won't leave your side. You thought she would outgrow this, but instead she seems to be more and more afraid of things. She is happy at home, but she still follows you from room to room. You just want her to relax and enjoy her childhood. You remember when your child first started school, how excited you were! You thought she would soon warm up and make friends. You want to be able to pick your child up from school and hear from the teacher that she was just fine once you left. You want to hear about what your child learned, and that your child played well with friends.

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
