Well, folks, we made it: we turned the page on 2020. (Deep exhale.) I wish it was that easy with the emotional, social and political fallout. The wake of challenges will be with us for a while. If you are struggling with personal or family issues, I’m sure the larger context has made them even more complicated. A silver lining of the 2020 storm cloud is that the importance of mental health has been more broadly recognized. I hope you find the help you are seeking. I am inspired by the effort and trust people bring to therapy. I try to match that effort and trust with positive energy and clinical expertise.
I work with clients with a range of presenting concerns: mood, relationship, and self-concept difficulties; life transitions; loss and grief. I specialize in perinatal work: with families experiencing pregnancy challenges, mood disorders, family crises, traumatic deliveries, NICU babies, infertility and pregnancy loss.
My style is best described as insight-oriented, growth focused, and client-centered. I work collaboratively with clients to highlight their strengths and set their course for healing and solving problems. I enjoy working with clients from different backgrounds. Hablo Español y me encanta trabajar con la población latina.
