Uncertainty is one of the most uncomfortable experiences. It's easy to get stuck in unhelpful thinking patterns such as "I should do more" and "I shouldn't worry about that." Oftentimes, as a result, we experience anxiety or distress. You may find yourself juggling work or school demands, relationship stress and even self-doubt. Creating balance in your life may not seem easy, but it's possible. Seeking the support of a psychologist can be a powerful step towards making a difference in your life. I focus on creating a collaborative environment to help you develop more adaptive ways to cope and to make supportive life changes.

Hola...I am Dr. T! We all deserve a life we love, but we might not know how to get there. I believe that with the right tools, the appropriate guidance, and the openness to learning new ways, we can all design the life and relationships we want and make the necessary changes to transform our lives. If you want to improve your relationship with yourself or others, if you are going through a breakup, you feel confused, discouraged, insecure, unhappy, tired of repeating the same patterns, and you are ready to take your life and your relationships to the next level and feel more fulfilled…It’d be my honor to be part of your process.
As a clinician who specializes in helping clients with relational issues, I believe that when we experience communication challenges and conflict with the people we care about most (partners, children, parents, siblings, friends), our quality of life suffers. When our most meaningful relationships are unfulfilling, strained, or a significant source of stress, we can experience unpleasant mental health symptoms (such as anxiety, depression, and poor coping strategies). I believe in the healing power of relationships and have witnessed how repairing relationships can bring joy, hope, and enrichment to someone's life.
You have been trying to help your child for a few months now. You are frustrated, tired and worried. All you want is for your child to feel good about themselves, get along with others and be successful. You have tried sticker charts, time-out, taking things away, talking and reasoning with them. Lately, what usually happens is you lose your patience and then regret yelling at them. You never imagined you would be looking for therapy for your child. Maybe it's the school that has suggested you get help for your child. At this point, you just want a professional to take over because you just don't know what else to do anymore.

Whether you are seeking to improve your relationships, increase your overall well-being, or are experiencing life challenges I am here to help. You will gain skills in developing authenticity, assertiveness, and self-awareness.
