We humans are complicated, influenced by chemistry, genetics, history, and social factors. Some people cruise along without trouble until something upsets the balance and then extra support and direction is needed. Some need a regular touchstone to keep on track, satisfied, or living according to their values. Whatever your needs are, I’m glad you are seeking help. I have 25 years experience in the mental health field. I work collaboratively with clients to find strengths and set the course for healing and solving problems. I am inspired by the effort and trust people bring to therapy and try to match it with experience and guidance
I have trained and worked in perinatal mental health for 15 years, with families experiencing pregnancy challenges, mood disorders, marriage and family crises, traumatic deliveries, NICU babies, infertility and pregnancy loss. I offer support and guidance as families navigate new or frightening waters.
I am also drawn to individual work with people wanting to feel better, improve relationships, understand themselves and to make changes. My style is best described as insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral, and client-centered. I enjoy working with clients from different backgrounds. Hablo Español y me encanta trabajar con la población latina.
