About

(

)
I am currently only providing Telehealth services for clients who reside in California. I work with people who are interested in improving: Depression; Social Anxiety and other specific phobias; Generalized Anxiety; Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder; Panic Disorder; Health behavior (e.g., adherence, coping with chronic illness, managing chronic pain); Smoking cessation; Insomnia; Trauma/PTSD; Issues related to experiences of LGBTQI+; Sexual health; Grief; and Stress.
My approach to treatment centers around supporting clients in reaching their own goals through individualized use of evidence-based treatments in a way that is client-centered. In short, I approach my work collaboratively while simultaneously structuring treatment to maximize client success.
Engaging in therapy can sometimes be challenging. With this in mind, I do my best to create a safe space for patients to explore their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors as they relate to their therapy goals. I work collaboratively with my patients to overcome the obstacles that are getting in the way of a more fulfilling life.
Ahorita solo ofrezco mis servicios por telemedicina-video a personas que viven en California. Específicamente trabajo con gente que quiere mejorar: Depresion; Ansiedad social y otras fobias específicas; Ansiedad general; Trastorno Obsesivo-Compulsivo; Trastorno de pánico; Conductas relacionadas a la salud (calidad de vida, acoplarse con enfermedades crónicas, dolor crónico, seguimiento de instrucciones/recomendaciones médicas); Cesación/Dejar de fumar; Insomnia; Trauma/Trastorno de Estrés Postraumático; Problemas relacionadas a las experiencias por identificarse como LGBTQI; Salud sexual; Duelo; Estrés.
Mi acercamiento hacia el tratamiento se centra en el apoyo incondicional al cliente utilizando tratamientos individualizados basados en evidencia científica. Este trabajo lo hago colaborando con el/la cliente y al mismo tiempo estructurar el tratamiento de una manera para aumentar los beneficios al cliente.
Entiendo que puede ser difícil y que da miedo empezar terapia. Con esto en mente, hago todo lo posible para crear un espacio seguro para que mis pacientes puedan explorar sus sentimientos, pensamientos, y conductas y cómo estos se relacionan sus metas. También trabajó con mis pacientes para crear metas rumbo a una vida más feliz y saludable.
