~ Acepto nuevos clientes ~ Hola, soy un terapeuta matrimonial y familiar con licencia que presta servicios en el área de San Diego. Me acerco a aquellos que ingresan a la terapia con compasión y comprensión, a la vez que integro modelos basados en evidencia para ayudar a crear un cambio significativo y lograr objetivos terapéuticos orientados al cliente.
Me apasiona apoyar a la comunidad perinatal y tengo capacitación especializada en el tratamiento del estado de ánimo perinatal y los trastornos de ansiedad. Apoyo a las familias que han afrontado los desafíos que vienen con la experiencia de la Unidad de cuidado intensivo neonatal (UCIN) y las complicaciones durante el embarazo y el período posparto.
Uso EMDR, un enfoque de psicoterapia que ayuda a las personas a recuperarse de los efectos de las experiencias traumáticas de la vida. Trabajo con parejas y padres utilizando el Método Gottman para aumentar la conexión emocional, mejorar la comunicación y fomentar el sentido de la vida compartida.

Well-Mama Therapy Group

Our therapy group provides strategies for postpartum mamas who may be struggling with the emotional and often overwhelming responsibilities of motherhood. This group is for mamas who are noticing that adjusting to their new role or new baby is impacting their life like they had not expected it. This is an 8 week therapy group that is held weekly for 90 minutes. This group is structured meaning each week we build on a new sets of skills using cognitive behavioral techniques that have been shown to reduce symptoms related to depression, anxiety, and anger. We require a minimum of 4 participants to begin a group.

Well-Mamas Tribe Support Group

We dedicate a whole group to self-care because it's the one thing we mamas need most. Mothering is often all about caring for others, this requires you to be emotionally, physically and mentally available. The focus of our support group is encouraging real and sustainable self-care practices to support the many roles we have as modern women. We offer a warm and inviting space to share stories where group leaders provide immediate emotional support to navigate real motherhood experiences. Our support group is semi-structured, meaning we present weekly topics that address motherhood experiences while also holding space for personal needs.
