In my work I utilize a wide variety of therapeutic techniques, which include gestalt exercises and experiments, dream work, imaginal dialogues, and emphatic reflection.
I am a bilingual Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has worked in both Mexico and the United States. I have over 20 years of experience in individual, couples, family and group therapy. I believe I am personally warm, understanding, emphatic, patient, caring, and compassionate with clients. And feel strongly that the nature of human beings tends toward growth and harmony. Along the way, the natural ability to self-regulate may unfortunately be interrupted. However, through the path of self-awareness, and self-responsibility we are able to restore our natural abilities and utilize our full potential, and live healthy life.

Are you searching for ways to be more emotionally stable and less shut down? For over 25 years I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on a range of issues including substance abuse, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, codependency, couples counseling, pre-martial counseling and more. In a highly personalized and collaborative treatment style, I help people understand the deeper reasons for why difficulties keep repeating over and over.

I invite you to think about your biggest challenge or deepest pain. Now think about the way you respond to those thoughts. Notice the judgment, self-criticism, or shame that shows up. Now consider how you would respond if you heard about the same struggle from a friend, child or sibling. The likelihood is that your response would be different: more compassionate and more accepting. This way of treating ourselves is a learned survival strategy—and just as it was learned, long ago, it can also be unlearned.

People want straight talk from a psychologist, not psychobabble. They don’t want a passive therapist who just listens. Nor do they want a know-it-all to tell them exactly what to do. They want a competent psychologist who gives real feedback about what he sees going on.
