Uncertainty is one of the most uncomfortable experiences. It's easy to get stuck in unhelpful thinking patterns such as "I should do more" and "I shouldn't worry about that." Oftentimes, as a result, we experience anxiety or distress. You may find yourself juggling work or school demands, relationship stress and even self-doubt. Creating balance in your life may not seem 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 to help you develop more adaptive ways to cope and to 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, group and family therapy. I also facilitate the Saturday support group for The Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness. I am bilingual and of Colombian nationality so I provide services in both English and Spanish. Call me today for a FREE 30-minute consultation.
La incertidumbre es una de las experiencias más incómodas. Es fácil quedarse atrapado en patrones de pensamiento negativos como "Debería hacer más" y "No debería preocuparme por eso". A menudo, como resultado, experimentamos ansiedad o angustia. Crear equilibrio en su vida puede no parecer fácil, pero es posible. Buscar el apoyo de un psicólogo puede ser un paso poderoso para marcar la diferencia en su vida. Mi enfoque es en crear un entorno de colaboración para ayudarlo a desarrollar formas más adaptativas para manejar la angustia y hacer cambios positivos en su vida.
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.
