Hello! I am Sabrina, a DC native, and come from a large immigrant Peruvian household. I believe therapy is a helpful space to deepen one’s understanding of themselves and others. It is also a space for growth and healing from our past experiences that have shaped us and our worldview. My role is to use a collaborative, non-judgmental, and supportive approach in therapy to meet my clients’ individual needs. My goal is to provide a safe, warm, and nurturing environment with a foundation of trust and empathy to facilitate difficult discussions. My hope is for you to feel heard and empowered because you are the expert in your life!

Thank you for visiting. I can imagine that you might be facing a challenge, adjusting to a new opportunity, experiencing uncertainty, or perhaps a combination of all three. When you need extra support to move forward, finding the right therapist can make all of the difference. I work with folks to forge meaningful relationships with themselves and others while I also attend to identity. I seek to work with clients on better understanding themselves, and who they are in relationships with in order to meet their needs.

I offer a strength base therapy approach focused on the possibilities for change. I help children, teens, adults and families get unstuck from unproductive patters of relation and practice more productive ways of communication. Being from Venezuela, and raising my own multicultural family, I am passionate by the challenges of meshing cultures to raise emphatic, tolerant and successful children and adolescents. I believe building and maintaining a successful family system requires the art of juggling. I help parents use their own resources to balance their many roles and coach kids and teens through their diverse relationships.

Life can be hard. A job relocation, challenging career or significant life transition can make it even harder. Maybe you feel alone, overwhelmed, hopeless or even damaged, and somehow stuck inside of these feelings. When navigating such painful feelings and life moments, it's easy to find yourself "going through the motions" — disconnected from yourself, the people closest to you, and your real purpose in life. If you find yourself in this unsettling space, remember: You don't have to figure it out alone. I work with people just like you — individuals, couples and families that appear to have it all together but suffer in silence.

Outwardly, you seem to have it all together. You’re living the perfect life… on paper. On the inside, it feels like you’re just keeping your head above water. Days are lackluster and monotonous, like someone muted all the colors of life. Yet the painful emotions are vibrant as ever, and are starting to feel overwhelming: anxiety, loneliness, shame. Gnawing emptiness. You try to distract yourself, but it’s getting harder. The critical voice in your head is growing more insistent. You can’t talk about it because you’re the one people go to with their problems. You know something has to change, but you don’t know how or where to start.

You have taken a very courageous step in seeking therapy. I have counseled children, families, and individuals at all stages of life. Over the course of my career, I have worked in urban, rural, and suburban communities, under government-funded grants, and through private funding in homes, schools, and residential treatment. Using an integrative approach that is trauma-informed, evidence-based, and family systems oriented, I draw from attachment theory, neurobiology research, systems theory, cognitive-behavioral theory, and existentialism. I also am an approved clinical supervisor in Maryland.

Are you a professional in the DC metro area, thriving in some areas of your life, but feeling "stuck" or "in the dark" in others? Are you grappling with a recent loss, a major decision or life transition, trauma, grief/loss, or symptoms related to anxiety or depression? Do you want more for your life, your career, your relationships? Sometimes the things that happen to us can lead to negative beliefs about our selves/our world- which seem to get in the way of living the lives we've always wanted. You are more than capable of untangling these beliefs.

Do you want to feel more connected to others? How about to yourself? Are things from your past getting in the way? Therapy allows for the time and space to focus on you. I believe all of us are capable of change, and therapy is one way to begin that change process. I work from an empowerment approach - in other words, I know that you are the expert about who you are, where you're from, and where you're going. My role is to provide feedback, guidance, and a safe environment to process that journey.

What type of Bethesda mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bethesda?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
