Therapy is an invaluable opportunity for individuals and couples to learn about themselves and the relationships that they want to cultivate. Whether you are thinking about working through a particular issue, hoping to gain clarity and focus in future decisions, or considering a short-term "check-up", I will work with you in a safe, non-judgmental space that cultivates compassion, healing, and growth. I believe in the power of building on each person/couple's strengths and discovering, through a collaborative approach, new ways to adapt and grow.

I am a doctoral licensed psychologist and certified sex therapist with specialized experience in addressing sexual and relational concerns such as intimacy, communication, desire, arousal, pain, kink, atypical sexual interests, and sexual behavior challenges as well as postpartum stress, cancer, major health-related changes, or chronic illness.

I have extensive training utilizing Cognitive Behavioral (e.g., CBT, Schema, Problem-Solving), Intersystems and Mindfulness-based approaches and also utilize psychodynamic approaches in English and Spanish. My approach is tailored to each person/couple's unique constellation of personal, relational, spiritual/religious experiences, expectations, and goals.

La terapia es una oportunidad invaluable para que las personas y las parejas aprendan sobre ellos mismos y sobre las relaciones que desean cultivar. Ya sea que ud. esté pensando en trabajar en un tema en particular, con la esperanza de ganar claridad y enfocarse en decisiones futuras, o considerando un "chequeo" a corto plazo, trabajaré con ud. en un espacio seguro y sin prejuicios que cultiva la compasión, curación y crecimiento. Creo en el poder de las fortalezas de cada persona / pareja y descubrir, a través de un enfoque de colaboración, nuevas formas de adaptarse y crecer.

Me especializo en abordar temas sexuales y relacionales como la intimidad, comunicación, celos, deseo, dolor, e intereses sexuales atípicos tanto como temas de cancer y salud.

Utilizo terapia CBT tanto como enfoques sistémicos o psicodinamicos . Mi enfoque se adapta dependiendo de las experiencias personales, relacionales, religiosas, y las metas de cada persona y pareja.
