These are very stressful times, and life can be so very hard with different challenges that we face over the years. Adults deserve a place where they feel welcomed to sort through their feelings, whether it be related to past trauma or current challenges. Families need a place to work through their struggles and not feel that they are alone in dealing with problems that can arise while raising children, to create healthy communication, and healing in their family. Children and teens may feel like coming to therapy means they are different, so its important that everyone who comes to therapy feels welcome and heard.

While lasting change takes time, when individuals and families are struggling or in crisis, it is important that they find some immediate relief; I am mindful about attending to urgency for results. When helping someone make the changes they want, I recognize that symptoms of anxiety, sadness and interpersonal conflict all occur within contexts; these problems exist within a person and within a system - whether family, social or occupational.

What if, instead of managing or running away from your suffering, you could heal the wounds at the core of it to the root? I have helped people do just this in my decades of work as depth psychotherapist, workshop leader, author, and speaker. In addition to working one-to-one with clients, I use my writing and speaking to help people understand how our own wounds and healing affect our world’s wounds and healing. Along with my first book, “Power Abused, Power Healed,” I recently published a new book, “How Did We Get Here?” exploring the real roots of the heart-breaking condition of our world, and how we can help heal those roots.

Emotions are human and universal. The way in which emotions are experienced are unique and vary from person to person. Intense emotions and life situations often leave people feeling alone and isolated in a world full of people. Asking for help is the most difficult task and takes an enormous amount of strength. My goal is to help you reach your goals, find ways to express emotions, manage thoughts and feel supported every step of the way.

Whether therapy is a new step for you or a path you stepped off from and are trying to return to, I commend you for making the move. Therapy is an opportunity to increase self- awareness, build skills, nurture healing and live a more authentic life. Our work will be informed by the expert in the room: you. Feelings of anxiety, depression, stress and isolation are at an all-time high. Ingrained, unproductive thoughts and behaviors, old patterns, new fears may have caused disruptions in your life, and you are now ready to face them. Thru therapy you will not be doing it alone.

One size never fits all. Each person and issue needs its own caring approach. Therapy includes: DBT, cognitive-behavioral, family systems, internal family systems, and trauma work, all with acceptance, warmth, and healing. Gains rely on maximum challenge with maximum support. I have successfully struggled in my life as a son, husband, and father of four. I know the pain of being wounded and the rewards of healing. For over 50 years I have helped kids and families as a teacher, school counselor, therapist, and supervising professor in three graduate counseling programs, including the Captains' Masters at the USMA at West Point.

As a psychologist, my job is to help my patients (adults, children, couples, and families) identify problematic patterns, understand formative relationships, and develop self understanding. Therapy can help children/teens learn how to express themselves and develop positive coping skills. The greatest predictor of success in therapy is the therapist-patient relationship and finding a therapist with whom you feel understood and can explore painful issues is crucial. My goal is to create a safe, supportive, non-judgmental space where we can explore the past and create a new future. I am bilingual-bicultural in Spanish and English.

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.
