I am a clinical psychologist with experience over twenty plus years providing family, couples, and individual counseling, play therapy, psychological assessment, and bilingual (English/Spanish) services to a client base spanning from young children to adolescents and adults. My extensive experience as a clinician and diagnostician includes working with ADHD, trauma, PTSD, anxiety based problems, depression, relational concerns, sports related concerns, and anger management, contributing to my approach to counseling grounded in the premise that the therapeutic relationship is essential in gaining meaning and resolving the conflicts that arise within our human experience.
I work with bilingual clients/families, often serving primarily Spanish-speaking communities and have extensive experience treating those exposed to trauma via abuse and violence, both within counseling and via trauma assessment. I utilize play therapy with children to facilitate process and communication and employ cognitive behavioral tools while working closely with parents and families.
My approach to treatment/assessment seeks to recognize the unique individual and engage clients free from judgment and assumptions. Within the therapeutic relationship I work with each client to identify attainable goals, ultimately striving to facilitate conflict resolution, to gain an improved understanding of oneself and the world, and to enrich the shared human experience.
