About

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.
Parents, I appreciate the fear and anxiety of having children struggle. We will work closely to help your child/teenager become less anxious or depressed and more resilient and socially comfortable. If a psychological or psychoeducational evaluation is required, I help parents acquire the understanding they need to become their child's best advocate.
My specialties include psychological testing, attachment disorders, grief & loss, eating disorders, and PTSD. I believe the essence of good therapy is empathy, tactful directness and a collaborative approach to help people make and internalize changes to improve their relationships and impart a sense of well-being.
