I am a therapist and co-founder of Newtown Family Therapy. As a therapist I am passionate about empowering you to gain insight into the road blocks that have been preventing you from moving forward and feeling whole. My practice was born out of a desire to connect to a community in need of healing and out of a desire to do more than today's world of managed care and short term therapy allows. Newtown Family Therapy is a practice where all are welcome and encouraged to share their story with the goal of finding peace, balance, and wellness.

Life is hard. Sometimes it feels like we're unable to deal with the challenges thrown our way. As a result, we might feel anxious, depressed , or experience relationship issues. In therapy, my goal is to help you improve your communication style, increase your self-esteem, and expand your mind to healthier ways of thinking. I will listen to you without judgment and provide different treatment interventions that best fit your needs. Therapy can be enriching and life changing if you allow yourself to take the first step.

I work with adult individuals and couples in the areas of: grief/loss, anxiety, panic attacks, depression , trauma, relationship issues, co-dependency, overeating/food addiction and other addictions, self-esteem, chronic pain, gay/lesbian issues, mind/body connection.
I believe that a strong therapeutic relationship based on respect and understanding is essential to making positive change and helping individuals gain new insight, a healthier perspective or perhaps more meaning in their lives. In order for an individual to reach their full potential, it is important to uncover reasons they may be "stuck" in unhealthy relationships, addictions, poor self-image or other negative situations or behaviors. Cumulative experience has provided a deeper understanding of how dysfunctional patterns, low self esteem, mental illness and addiction can have an impact on the individual as well as those around them.

I have treated individuals with symptoms that include: depression , anxiety, codependency, adjustment issues associated with life transitions, PTSD, trauma related to physical, sexual and emotional abuse and grief/loss.
Life sometimes presents us with challenges that can feel overwhelming and we find ourselves at an emotional impasse. As an experienced Licensed Professional Counselor, I believe in fostering a collaborative relationship that is rooted in safety, respect, trust and empathy. During the course of therapy, I offer an accepting environment that opens possibilities for noticing patterns of daily functioning that are not working or are limiting potential. I consider that it is essential to validate my client's uniqueness to develop insight and encourage personal growth and healing of mind, body and spirit.

We will work closely to help your child/teenager become less anxious or depressed and more resilient and socially comfortable.
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.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
