My approach includes the frameworks of Mindfulness, CBT, DBT , Somatics, Emotional Freedom Technique and Psychodynamic and Transpersonal perspectives.
We are in the midst of a powerful and pressurized time. Personal challenges are amplified by collective stress and it can be difficult to navigate such new and complex terrain within and around us. We want to feel connected, whole, and in our purpose, but separation, isolation, and fragmented realities are heightened. In this time, awareness, compassion, and courage are needed to meet the painful spaces and shed light on our shadows, transforming them into opportunities for more presence, fulfillment, and peace. I aim to empower the healer within you. As we heal, we serve ourselves and the world around us for the better.

I have received extensive training in DBT ( dialectical behavior therapy) and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and continue to utilize these models in my work today. Together, they provide effective strategies for change balanced with mindfulness and acceptance. As a clinician, I aim to provide authenticity and evidenced based practices to ensure that you receive effective and compassionate care. I have experience working with individuals from 13 - 90 years old and enjoy having a diverse case load. In addition to DBT and CBT, I have been trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Prolonged Exposure.

I am a trained DBT clinician and find success in mixing DBT skills with a psychodynamic approach that best fits each client individually.
I am a firm believer that everyone deserves a space without judgement to explore who they are, how they got there and where they want to go. My goal as a therapist is to help clients figure out what isn’t working for them and then work as a team to enact change.

Are you feeling stuck or overwhelmed? Do you get in your own way, with negative thoughts or behaviors? Do you struggle with intimacy and trust? Perhaps you're gripped by emotions you cannot control; or the opposite - feel disconnected, alienated, unable to get close? Others have found healing and transformation through psychotherapy - there is hope! It's important to find the right therapist for YOU, so I'm glad you're shopping around. You can see me in the video on my website, "Finding A Therapist", where I provide some concrete tips about the process.

My training is based in CBT approaches, such as ACT and DBT .
I work with individuals looking to fundamentally change the way they relate to themselves, to break free from the burden of impossible standards and feelings of inadequacy. Often this involves investigation into the ways we relate to ourselves and to the ways we can punish or sabotage ourselves. Working together, we can find new ways to cope that allow you to live a more vital and authentic life, less encumbered by anxiety and stress. I believe that this kind of work represents no less than liberation from the doubts and fears that stop you from living your own best life.

My clinical approach is relational and existential; when dealing with more severe clinical issues, I use CBT/ DBT and EMDR.
We all go through difficult times at some point in our lives. How we adjust, cope, and learn from these experiences will help us regain the sense of empowerment, inspiration and resilience to endure the many stages in life. Todos pasamos por momentos dificiles en nuestras vidas, pero el como nos ajustamos y lo que aprendemos de esas experiencias, es lo que nos ayudara a volver a sentir la capacidad, inspiracion y fortaleza para sobrellevar las diferentes etapas de nuestra vida.

I incorporate mindfulness, Buddhist philosophy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy ( DBT ).
Welcome. I do this work because I care deeply about healing through connection and compassionate relationships. I love working with people so they can learn about themselves, challenge old stories that may no longer serve, and ultimately live more authentic lives. Each of us is strong, powerful and beautiful, with unique gifts to offer this world. Yet sorrow is real, and having a safe and compassionate space to address grief, transition, relationship issues, trauma, anxiety, depression, addiction, and questions about gender and sexuality is fundamental and healing.

Resulting in the person you want to be.
