My priority as a therapist is to create a safe space for you. When any of us seeks out therapy, we are likely suffering. To suffer is to be in a very tender place, and I want to honor that. Whether your suffering comes from early childhood trauma, more recent losses, relationship problems, social injustice, adjustment to big changes in your life...I want you to feel safe and companioned as you move toward tending those places of wounding and toward healing.

My therapeutic style is grounded in Humanistic and Cognitive-Behavioral therapy with a pragmatic, down-to-earth style. Each client's therapy is individualized, collaborative, and strengths based. I help clients learn to regulate and manage feelings that overwhelm them and negatively affect their thoughts, moods, and attitudes that, in turn, lead to destructive behavior. Whether it is anxiety, depression, diminished self-esteem, or relationship issues, individual clients come to understand their present circumstances in light of their past. I am committed to helping clients improve relationships and gain self knowledge.

"In every person there lies buried deep in the heart a desire for a certain sort of life: a life that is free and unencumbered, a life that is full of beauty, joy and fulfillment" (A H Almaas). Are you struggling with a relationship? Did you suffer a loss? Are you struggling to find meaning in your life, or are you still troubled by the effects of a difficult childhood? Psychotherapy can offer a path to healing where you can get back in touch with your true nature, and experience this as inherently healthy, whole, and a source of compassion and intuitive wisdom.

To be honest, you probably don't actually NEED therapy. Things are going pretty well for the most part. You're slaying at work. You have fulfilling friendships. You're getting comfortable outside of your comfort zone. When you feel sad or anxious, your coping skills are pretty solid. And still . . . You want to level up. You're going through a life change, which you know will make you happy soon, but currently feels like being hit by a truck of mixed emotions. You want a fresh perspective on your relationship. You wonder about your doubts, your dreams, and the beautiful messes that make you you. And I'm so glad!

Do other therapists seem judgmental? Don't understand? Won't listen to you? If you need to talk about anything and everything, clients tell me I have a strong capacity for compassion, empathy, and care. At the same time, I’m forthright and candid. I see you and hear you—a whole person (body, mind, spirit) living in an interactive and interconnected world. I believe you're the expert in you--even if you're not yet aware of it. My role is to help you find that, and bring my own holistic vision, experience, training, expertise, and tools to the table, so you can work to be the best possible version of you.

Are you tired of feeling stuck and that nothing seems to change no matter what you do? Maybe you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious and it’s starting to affect your relationships and your work. Or maybe it’s because you’re in a relationship where you have the same fights over and over and nothing seems to get better. Unresolved hurt and resentment may be making you feel distant from your partner. You may long to be closer but feel unsure that things can change. Feeling disconnected or distant from others is painful and can leave us feeling alone, insecure and full of self-doubt.

You: look great on paper, but deep down you're struggling and ashamed to admit it - especially when others have it so much worse. You're sensitive, idealistic, and creative. You're aware of your potential and people reflect it back to you, but you're having trouble finding traction. You're not connecting with your work the way you want to, and your co-working relationships are "fine," but not satisfying in the way you'd like them to be. It feels like something's missing, but you don't know what and you don't know where to find it. Behind the mask, you feel scared, sad, lonely, insecure, anxious, depressed and may be losing hope.

*** I currently have 2 spots open in my practice for clients who would like to MEET IN PERSON in an outdoor office space. Finding the right match in a therapist is essential to beginning this uniquely personal process. Therapy often gets a bad name when there is a sense of disconnect between client and therapist, which can make therapy feel like another struggle. Life is challenging enough. I am committed to creating a comfortable and genuine dialogue with each client, or to offering more fitting outside referrals. I am able to put people at ease, welcoming humor where appropriate.

I work with clients at my office in Berkeley near the Ashby Bart Station. I prefer to work with a client who will come to sessions even when it is challenging to do so and allow the therapy relationship to open up space for safe exploration of the realities of life, ways to cope with reality, and improve spiritual and mental strength. Therefore, my client would demonstrate commitment to the therapy relationship, whether it is for brief therapy or long-term work, by doing the work necessary to understand the self and make necessary life decisions in order to maximize the availability of life energy.

I approach the concerns that bring somebody into the consultation room with the humanistic belief that therapy can best take place through a respectful dialogue that fully utilizes the resources of both the therapist and the client. I regard the blocks that make such a dialogue difficult a worthwhile topic of exploration that can yield a strengthening of the capabilities for problem solving and growth. I am a native Spanish speaker from Argentina, and I offer therapy in that language. I also see multicultural couples that need bilingual intermediation. I have a special interest in couples.
