About

!Bienvenido! Welcome! I believe that the overall health of a person depends on their physical, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing- an integrated mind & body perspective. My approach focuses on supporting you to use constructive and healthy ways to better manage challenges life sometimes presents. Through our work together, we will identify your internal strengths and build both skills and tools that will help improve your sense of self and your relationships, as well as increase your overall quality of life. I am aware of the whole person as I engage in the therapeutic process of change, healing and growth.
As a native bilingual & bicultural psychotherapist, I work with diverse clients. I draw from various therapeutic approaches to promote wellness and greater satisfaction in your relationships. Utilizando una variedad de técnicas terapéuticas, trabajo para promover el que se sientan mejor y sienta mas satisfacción en sus relaciones!
I studied Psychology and Latin American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. My MSW at Howard University focused on immigrants and refugees. Life experiences enriched my global perspective- raised in Venezuela, immigrating to the USA and living in Peru. I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals!
