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 focus mainly in anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, trauma and grief .
I am a trauma informed therapist who utilizes CBT along with elements of Psychodynamic Theory and Attachment Theory. Our sessions will be a balance of self-reflection, insight and support while also learning strategies to help cope with the distressing emotions, thoughts or memories you are experiencing. I offer psychoeducation surrounding the science behind how the brain, nervous system, thoughts and emotions play a role in mental health, and how we can use this information as part of the treatment process together.

Resolving relationship conflict and moving clients through loss , grief and traumatic pain is a professional commitment.
"She hears me, she gets me, she helped me." Life and relationships can be both fulfilling and also full of stress. My intention is to offer a respectful, safe therapy experience that will help you find yourself, your answers, insights and your voice in your world. My approach is to guide you and to partner with you. Therapy is an active effort to understand and learn a new way, a healthy way so that you can experience yourself, your relationships and your life with less pain and confusion. I have deep respect for those that take the courageous step to enter the "School for the Self" and rejoice in the accomplishments.

My specialties include psychological testing, attachment disorders, grief & loss , eating disorders, and PTSD.
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.

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.

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.

Grief Therapists
Grief and Bereavement is the acute pain that accompanies loss. Because it is a reflection of what we love, it can feel all-encompassing. Grief is not limited to the loss of people, but when it follows the loss of a loved one, it may be compounded by feelings of guilt and confusion, especially if the relationship was a difficult one.
