I enjoy helping people struggling with psychological and emotional problems to succeed in managing these issues in empowered and effective ways. I work with people individually, as families, or in the couple’s context. I take pleasure in creating a safe, supportive space for patients to address and work through their problems. My specialization in DBT and CBT allows me to offer a variety of skills and tools including mindfulness to address issues such as anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, eating disorders, and trauma. I am fluent in both Spanish and English and am experienced in addressing concerns of Latino clients.
In my practice I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families. I work with children ranging in age from 2-adolescence. In my work with children I am able to to assess current social/emotional developmental functioning, along with play therapy intervention and parent coaching. I play a very supportinve and theraputice role wit the families of the children with whom I treat. I currently treat adults, as well, in both individual and couples therapy. I have experience working with a wide range of issues and personal struggles that people in our community are experiencing.
My practice specializes in working with children, adolescents, domestic violence victims and survivors, and individuals with childhood trauma. Working collaboratively, we will explore your current thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. As the client you are the expert of your life, and as your therapist, my role is to facilitate the process of change you need to achieve your goals.
I help you gain control over difficult issues QUICKLY to feel happier, healthier, and more fulfilled. First, we need the right understanding of the issue ... then I use research-based approaches to maximize benefit in as few sessions as possible. Many of my clients are high-functioning, working professionals who are experiencing symptoms they just can't shake -- we work together to solve that and get you back to feeling good in your life. I am private pay, meaning I don't take insurance up front, but do take HSA/FSA cards and help with insurance reimbursement. Even just 1 session of good therapy should feel very helpful.
We have all or at some point in time will experience a life-changing or even downright traumatic event. It doesn’t matter if it happened in your childhood or adulthood, it marks you. It changes you. It leads to feelings of burnout, poor self-care, irritability, depression, anxiety, sick and tired of being sick and tired, and more. Those changes can be difficult to work through alone. You are not alone (Sing it with me, I know the song popped into your head). Together we will learn what you need to live a life where you feel authentic, living according to your values so that you'll be present and fulfilled in your life.
With a legitimate desire to experience your emotions, reveal your thoughts, and admit the consequences of your actions, you have all you need to achieve your therapeutic goals of change and healing. Emotional containment/expression, spontaneity, intellectual clarity, and behavior change are basic to of human nature. A subtle shift in one element can have profound consequences in restoring emotional equilibrium and improving quality of life I bring keen intuition and 40 years' treatment experience to guide you.
The greek word 'Therepon' means comrade in a common struggle...As a psychotherapist, I believe it is important to acknowledge that the therapeutic process sometimes involves tolerating uncomfortable feelings, recalling complicated (unpleasant) memories, and facing fears. Your courage and commitment to working through issues should lead to meaningful insights needed to free you of distracting symptoms, improving your relationships with others, and enablling you to develop strengths for facing challenges in the future.
In the therapeutic search for self actualization the goals are to incorporate balance, order, harmony, simplicity, creativity, and humility into one's life.

Life can be painful, relationships can be disappointing, and self-sabotage can be your barrier to achieving your full potential. Real change is possible, but not easy. It happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you have power to change instead of trying to exercise control over what you don't. I assist clients by helping them identify the specific maladaptive thoughts and behaviors ingrained in each of us from our pasts and which can sabotage our futures. Working together clients can gain self-awareness, identify core values and create goals changing their life direction.

My method is grounded in Psychodynamic and Relational Theory. We all will work together to understand your thoughts, emotions, early-life experiences, and beliefs to gain insight into your present-day problems and unhealthy patterns. I encourage you to speak freely about your desires and fears, so you can identify feelings and thoughts that you've pushed out of conscious awareness. As unconscious thoughts become conscious, you are better equipped to integrate new ways of acting, instead of remaining stuck in habitual ones. By practicing carefully and tactfully, we will take curative steps ahead.
In Love We Learn provides support for individuals with sensorimotor differences (autism and otherwise), their families, and their team of practitioners. Sensorimotor differences can impact so much. Life is complex, and can become even more so when considering someone living with and experiencing these differences. Families may struggle to find clinicians who can provide fulfilling guidance and support. My clients are looking for someone who can provide a unique perspective to their families' care. They are looking to build an intentional lifestyle around their loved one who is motor-impacted.

Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern, MS, RMHCI
I have a passion for connecting with clients to help them overcome their struggles and create renewed energy for life. To be human is to experience loss, difficulty, and heartache. But there is hope. As humans we also have the capacity to manage our problems, heal, and change our lives for the better. Perhaps you recently went through a break-up, job loss, or the death of a loved one. Or perhaps you just feel stuck in life and unable to break free from negative thoughts or unwanted emotions. You may be looking for a new life purpose or to change your story. Regardless of what you are going through, I believe therapy can help.
I am a licensed clinical social worker and psychoanalyst in practice over 25 years. My clinical work is with adolescents, adults and couples.

Many of the barriers to happiness and success can be out of awareness yet exert a powerful role on our behaviors and feelings. I can work with you to address your unique goals.
The ideal client is one that has decided that they want change, they want to change now, and that it is themself who must change. But then, not all clients arrive as 'ideal.' I work with all kinds of clients: clients who wish to reduce stress, eliminate anxiety and unnecessary fears, end non-productive habits such as smoking, eliminate fears and phobias, reduce depression, optimize healthy habits, and attain goals. Sometimes the client does not even know what to address. We figure it out together. I do also address both heterosexual and LGBT clients as young as 12 years old.
