I am skilled in helping clients heal from trauma, anxiety, depression and relational challenges. I have a Ph.D. from UC Berkeley and fulfilled all pre-licensure clinical training at the UCSF Department of Psychiatry. I have broad experience in treating trauma and attachment difficulties through somatic skills and specialized touch. Born in Spain, to Colombian parents, I bring a multicultural perspective to my work. I also bring a broad knowledge base as Trauma Expert Witness (State and Federal Courts), Adjunct Professor in Somatic Psychology (CIIS) Clinical Supervisor (UCSF/Children's Hospital, and CIIS) and co-parenting counselor (California Co-parenting Center).

When life events exceed our coping capacity--due stress or trauma--our bodies hold the impact. Hormonal, tissue, joint, muscle, organ and digestive systems "brace" in an effort to regulate our activated nervous systems. State-of-the-art approaches to stress or trauma treatment embrace mind/body approaches for healing.

I have 9 years of postdoctoral somatic psychology training including Somatic Experiencing certification, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Othmer Method Neurofeedback, and Touch Skills Training for Psychotherapists (Kathy Kain). I use these approaches, along with relational psychotherapy expertise (John Gottman, Alicia Lieberman) to help individuals, parent-child dyads, and couples.
