Congratulations on making it this far; searching for a therapist can be an overwhelming process, and the first step is often the hardest! Many individuals struggle with depression, anxiety, adjusting to change, or simply the desire to understand themselves more thoroughly. Whether to improve mood and functioning, or glean insight into personality, therapy can be reparative, strengthening, and play a role in maximizing enjoyment of life! I work with individuals on many problems, and have expertise in several areas including perinatal (pregnancy/pospartum) anxiety and depression, and sexuality/gender issues.
I have found that the greatest success results from a combination of insight and behavior change. My training has led me to practice in an integrative manner, drawing from a cognitive-behavioral framework to generate change based upon a deeper understanding using psychodynamic concepts and interpersonal techniques.
My practice is focused on perinatal issues (e.g., fertility, pregnancy, postpartum issues), couples therapy, sex and gender issues (including transgender issues), and interpersonal relationships (including couples, polyamory, family dyads). I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I am bilingual in English and Spanish.
