I am a licensed clinical psychologist at PVD Psychological Associates and am a bicultural and bilingual therapist (native fluency in Spanish). I specialize in the areas of complex traumas, identity development, depressive disorders, eating disorders, anxiety disorders, relationship issues, and working with LGBTQIA-identified individuals. I practice within a psychodynamic-interpersonal framework, though I often use strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), mindfulness, compassion based techniques, and narrative approaches.
In my work, I take great care to develop a safe, warm and collaborative relationship with my clients, as I believe this relationship is a key conductor towards healing, hope and change. I typically like to understand all of my clients from a holistic perspective, taking into account early life experiences, their attachments and relationships.
It is my belief that we can all find a life that is worth living, where we can express our most genuine and authentic self, with love and compassion. As a therapist, I remain very humble in my stance and for me, it is an honor to witness my client’s unfolding narrative and healing process.
