I love helping individuals and couples achieve their goals and aspirations. I offer a caring, safe, and healing environment that allows clients the opportunity to explore, experience, work through problems, and create solutions that expand their potential for growth and wellness. As a proponent of integrative and holistic therapy that honors the mind-body connection and its impact on well-being, health, and happiness, I attend to the whole person, not just a set of symptoms or problems. I emphasize teaching skills that develop inner resources for successful coping in life. I use a variety of methods, but the method has to meet your needs.

In relationship and couples counseling, I help clients develop effective communication and conflict management skills, and relationship building blocks which generate understanding, intimacy, satisfaction, respect, affection, appreciation, and the mutual support that is so important for reaching personal aspirations. I have led classes and published research in psychoeducation, self-development, intimacy, etc.

When integrated, our behaviors, emotions, thoughts, and bodies are resources that promote healthy lifestyles, habits, and choices. My expertise in body-mind and mindfulness approaches can address the connection between problems, stresses and health concerns. I am a clinical psychologist and counselor with over 27 years of experience in dealing with many concerns.

Me encanta ayudar individuos y parejas a alcanzar sus metas y aspiraciones de vida. Ofrezco un ambiente seguro donde los clientes pueden explorar, vivenciar, y crear soluciones que aumenten su crecimiento y bienestar. Practico terapia integradora y holistica que respeta la conexión entre la mente y el cuerpo, asisto y veo a la persona como un ser integral, no solo como un conjunto de sintomas y problemas. Hago énfasis en ensenar habilidades para desarrollar recursos internos que ayudan a enfrentar con éxito los desafios de la vida. Uso una variedad de métodos, pero el método elegido debe cumplir con tus necesidades.

En terapia de parejas y relaciones, ayudo a los clientes a desarrollar una comunicación efectiva y también habilidades para manejar conflictos, y generar comprensión, intimidad, satisfacción, respeto, afecto, aprecio, y el apoyo mutuo que es tan importante para alcanzar aspiraciones personales.

Mi metodo de integración de comportamientos, emociones, pensamientos y cuerpos promueve estilos de vida, hábitos más saludables. Mi pericia en un enfoque cuerpo-mente y de atención plena puede abordar la conexión que existe entre los problemas, el estrés y preocupaciones de salud. Soy psicólogo clinico y consejero con más de 27 años de experiencia.
