About

Psychotherapy gives you the opportunity to establish a healing relationship in which you can become aware of your strengths and challenges in a safe space in order to recognize the changes you want to make in your life and appreciate the qualities that are worth holding onto. Quite simply, it is a process of taking ownership of your own life. To help you do so, I provide a respectful, collaborative, and kind listening space. For me, it is most important that you feel that you are the expert in your life. I have found that this type of experience helps my clients enjoy a better quality of life and experience relief from distress.
I am a bilingual (E/S) Licensed Professional Counselor with graduate degrees in counseling and psychology and have received postgraduate training in several psychotherapeutic approaches, including psychoanalytic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy, trauma-informed psychotherapy, EMDR, family therapy, mindfulness, and harm reduction.
I have over 10 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults struggling with a diverse set of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, family conflict, school problems, eating disorders, gender and sexuality issues, multicultural and acculturation issues, among others.
Iniciar un proceso terapéutico puede resultar un reto, pero cuando alguien hace un primer contacto con la/el possible terapeuta ya está en el camino de la cura. La terapia es una oportunidad de establecer una relación que idealmente te ayudará a reconocer aquello que te ha motivado a seguir adelante a pesar de las difficultades. Es una oportunidad que la persona se da a sí misma de conocerse mejor en compañía de alguien que, con paciencia, empatía, y presencia te ayudará a reconocer los cambios que quieres en tu vida. Para lograr lo anterior, mi estrategia es colaborativa, respetuosa de las necesidades del paciente, y compasiva.
Soy una terapeuta bilingüe (inglésy español) certificada como Professional Counselor en el estado de Connecticut y con maestrías en Psicologia y Counseling. He recibido entrenamiento en psicoterapia psicoanalítica, terapia del juego, mentalización, EMDR, teorías del trauma, mindfulness, terapia de familia, terapia cognitivo conductual y harm reduction.
Cuento con más de 10 años de experiencia trabajando con niños, adolescentes y adultos que experimentan difficultades tales como depresión, ansiedad, trauma, estrés, conflictos familiares, problemas escolares, trastornos de la alimentacion, dificultades relacionadas con diversidad sexual y de género, multiculturalidad y aculturacion, entre otros.
