About

I am passionate about empowering clients to gain self confidence, a stronger sense of identity and the ability to build healthy relationships. I believe how we move through the world is directly connected to our most basic understanding of our selves, and the relationships and role models we have grown up with. I also believe our culture plays a significant role shaping our identity and the relationship with the context we live in. Beginning with this understanding, I utilize aspects of different therapeutic approaches to help clients create meaningful and positive changes to live a fuller life.
-Ofrezco Terapia en Español- I offer Bilingual therapy services (Spanish & English). Between Argentina and the United States, I have over 16 years of clinical experience working with culturally diverse clients in a variety of settings, like community college counseling center, community-based agencies, state prisons, academic settings, and private practice.
My therapeutic style is collaborative, and incorporates warmth, humor, and honest feedback. As someone who has moved through different cultures, I understand that when people feel honored and heard, they feel safe. And when they feel safe, they can look at their issues in a different way, creating space for change to take place.
