There are circumstances in life that may trigger such negative feelings that we can barely stay afloat and function. During such times, we may feel stuck, realizing that all the resources that worked for us in the past do not work anymore. At other times, we may feel okay yet not fully satisfied with our present lives; we may want more but do not know what. I’m here to help you make that journey from surviving to thriving. I combine psychotherapy, coaching, and education. With my husband Michael we also offer Couple to Couple Coaching, drawing from our own professional training and life experiences to help other couples.
I’m a bilingual (English/Spanish) licensed clinical social worker with psychotherapy privileges and a doctoral degree. I have 25 years of experience working with children and adults, using a wide range of treatment modalities. Over the last 15 years, I have also worked with adults as a life and professional coach.
During an initial free 15-minute interview, we will discuss your concerns and your expectations. We will assess whether we are a good match and decide together the next steps. My hours are flexible, and the frequency of the sessions are determined by your needs and your goals.
