It's common to feel overextended or overwhelmed when you are juggling work or school demands, relationship stress and even self-doubt. It's easy to get stuck in unhelpful thinking patterns such as "I should do more" and "I shouldn't worry about that." Creating balance in our lives may not always be easy, but it's possible. Seeking the support of a psychologist can be a powerful step towards making a difference in your life. I focus on creating a collaborative environment in which goals are set in unison with my clients. I aim to help you develop more adaptive ways to cope with distress and to ultimately make supportive life changes

I am a Cognitive-Behavioral therapist by training. I specialize in Exposure and Response Prevention. I have worked across various levels of care including residential, intensive outpatient and outpatient therapy for both eating disorders and OCD. I also specialize in anxiety disorders, depression, and trauma. I offer in-person, teletherapy and home sessions.

I am a co-founder of Home For Balance Psychotherapy Group, where I currently conduct individual and family therapy. I also facilitate the Saturday support group for The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness. I am bilingual and of Colombian nationality. I am able to provide services in English and Spanish. Call me today for a FREE 30-minute consultation.

Es común sentirse agobiado entre las demandas del la vida, el estrés en las relaciones e incluso la baja confianza en si mismo. Es fácil quedar atrapado en patrones de pensamientos negativos como "debería hacer más" y "no debería preocuparme por eso". Crear un equilibrio en nuestras vidas no siempre es fácil, pero es posible. Buscar el apoyo de un psicólogo puede ser un paso poderoso para marcar una diferencia en su vida. Mi enfoque es en crear un entorno de colaboración con mis clientes donde metas son creadas conjuntamente. Ayudo a mis clientes a crear formas más adaptativas para manejar la angustia y hacer cambios positivos.

Mi enfoque es en la terapia cognitiva-conductual. Me especializo en la Exposición y Prevencion de Respuesta. He trabajado en varios niveles de tratamiento, como la terapia residencial, ambulatoria intensiva y ambulatoria tanto para trastornos de la conducta alimentaria como para el TOC. También me especializo en trastornos de ansiedad, depresión y trauma.

Ofrezco sesiones en persona, teleterapia y domiciliaria. Soy co-fundadora de Home For Balance Psychotherapy Group, donde actualmente realizo terapia individual y familiar. También facilito el grupo de apoyo del sábado para The Alliance for Eating Disorders. Soy bilingüe y de nacionalidad Colombiana. Llámame hoy para una consulta GRATUITA de 30 minutos.
