Announcement icon In order to minimize the risk of exposure and infection, during the COVID-19 crisis, I will be seeing clients only via teletherapy.
I am passionate in working with relational issues, either when helping individuals or couples and families. I believe that our relationships have an essential impact on our well-being. I am yet to hear a client or a friend or a family member talk about distress that is not somehow associated to a relational issue... Aren't we all longing to belong and to find safety and security in the arms of our loved ones (partners, parents or very dear friends that are like family)? And yet, these are precisely the people that can hurt us the most.
I help my clients, couples, individuals or families, deal with the hurt that comes in close relationships. My approach to practice is loss and trauma-informed, from an attachment-based, emotionally-focused therapy perspective, always considering the complexity of multicultural aspects that shape our lives.
I am an assistant professor of marriage, couple and family counseling, teaching future therapists at Governors State University. I also enjoy supervising future clinicians. In my previous professional life, I was a family physician. From that 'life', I bring with me an interest in working with issues related to physical illness
