About

I am a licensed psychologist in the state on New Jersey and New York. I conduct psychological evaluations as well I provide individual, couples and family therapy with Spanish population. I have extensive clinical experience working with Hispanic population. I have expertise in trauma focused therapy and evidence-based interventions for children, adolescents and adults. I specialize in disruptive disorders (i.e. ADHD, ODD), mutism, physical and sexual abuse, trauma, play therapy, personality and mood/anxiety disorders, and family disruption. Furthermore, I enjoy helping couples and families.
My extensive experience working in different clinical and community settings with a diverse population allows me to provide individualized treatment and evaluations recommendations focused on individual, cultural and systemic aspects. I am bilingual which allows me to work with Spanish speaking clients.
Soy una psicológa clínica bilingue con más de 11 años de experiencia trabajando en múltiples escenarios tales como hospitales, clínicas communitarias y práctica privada. Si éstas buscando apoyo y alguien que te escuche compasionadamente y te brinde estrategias para mejorar me encantaría ayudarte y ser parte de tu jornada y metas.
