My treatment interests include adolescent/young adult life transitions (moving away from home, starting a career, marriage, family ), relationship concerns (peers/parents/partners), anxiety (excessive worry/panic attacks, academic stress), depression (sadness, isolation, low self-esteem), grief, ADHD, and career counseling.
"Adulting" can be complicated. If you're in your teens or twenties, you know what I'm talking about - the pressure is real. Yes, it can be a time of new and exciting experiences, but it can also be fraught with anxiety, confusion, heartbreak, and unexpected forks in the road. Whether you're struggling with problems at school or work, difficult relationships, or just the sense that something is missing from your life, therapy may help. Creating lasting and meaningful change can be challenging but you don't have to do it alone.

I specialize in working with depression, anxiety, work stress, life transitions, identity concerns, family dynamics, grief and loss and relationship issues.
Life comes with many complex challenges. Sometimes we feel alone or inadequate and experience difficulty being fully authentic with others. Often, we lack the necessary support, or open ourselves up to being hurt by others. Mental health is strongly influenced by our ability to get our needs met. Psychotherapy is a process where we take a close look at your needs, including the thoughts and feelings you have when you feel stuck. By identifying, fleshing out and contextualizing your reactions, we gain a deeper and nuanced understanding of you. This process will help you find freedom of choice and greater fulfillment.

I have a special interest and deep passion for helping my clients explore/manage anxiety, depression, grief/loss, divorce/separation, trauma, ADHD, life transitions, communication/assertiveness skills, and peer/ family discord.
Hi! I’m Isabella, but you can call me Izzie. I have experience working with individuals throughout the lifespan and I particularly love working with children, adolescents, and young adults. There are so many stressors that can make life very difficult. From life adjustments, bullying, trouble focusing, lack of motivation, feeling alone, difficulty making/keeping friends, divorce/separation, navigating strong emotions, experiencing grief and loss and whatever else life throws at you- we can work together. My number one goal is to provide you with a safe, judgment free space to openly talk through concerns you may be having.

With children, adolescents, and young adults, I combine relationship and calming skills to reduce ADHD and family discord and increase self-efficacy.
I help individuals work on life issues tied to anxiety and depression, relationship difficulties, stress symptoms tied to childhood trauma, and families struggling with behavioral challenges. I teach communication skills that help with difficult relationships. These skills include helping my clients improve their power, voice, and contact with significant others. I employ many approaches in psychotherapy, including psychodynamic, gestalt, somatic experiencing (SE), accelerated experiential dynamic (AEDP), cognitive behavioral (CBT) and emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT).

Besides the commonplace individual and couples psychotherapy, many clients, especially parents, consult with me about family problems.
In my practice, I work with a diverse clientele: children, adolescents and adults from all backgrounds. My approach is practical and conversational as we explore together the stressors of daily living, relationship concerns, parenting issues, and in some instances, severe psychiatric disorders. Often, clients seek short-term interventions, though for some difficulties therapy continues for an extended period. I allow my clients to set the agenda for our work together and decide what sort of help is needed.

Life may be harder than you expected. You may feel stressed, depressed, or anxious. You may be struggling with a decision. Relationships with your family are complex. You may want to improve communication with your partner. Parenting is tough. You may have suffered a loss, & you don't know why it still affects you. You may have put a dream on hold while you attended to family matters, & now you wonder if you are still capable of fulfilling that dream. You may feel you have been given gifts, but you aren't using them to their full potential.

I received my Bachelors in Psychology in Venezuela, and my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy by the University of Rochester, NY.
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.

I have been a teacher, supervisor and trainer of family therapists for over 25 years in addition to my private practice.
My approach to therapy is to create a context in which individuals, couples and families can know themselves in terms of their inherent strengths, competencies and capacities. I believe that when people experience themselves this way, they are most able to deal with stress, disruption, anxiety and depression in their lives. In my work with families and couples, I focus on interpersonal connection and work to help people experience the ways in which they make a positive difference to one another.

I help people who are wanting to address their difficulties be it with their work, family , and/or personal relationships.
I think it's very important to find a therapist who is a GOOD FIT for you with your unique needs. While I think psychodynamically, which means that I focus on helping my clients develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships, I tend to be pragmatic and problem solving. My style is professional, yet relaxed and I'm appreciated for being both compassionate and having a sense of humor in my work. I see my patients in individual psychotherapy and very frequently in group therapy as well. Please note that I am only accepting new patients for group therapy.

There are times when things are not going as well as we'd like in our family , social or work relationships. You may feel alone, depressed, anxious, or have conflict or discomfort with those you care about. In my psychotherapy practice I help couples, individuals & families restore their sense of well being and connection. People learn how to be more present and intentional about their interactions and decisions, in accordance with what is most important to them. Partners learn to be safely available to each other through a dialogue process that teaches more effective listening, deeper understanding and empathy.

Toward this end, family members and significant others are sometimes asked to participate in the therapy.
I specialize in an active, short-term problem solving treatment. While enough of the past must be understood to make sense of the present, this goal oriented short-term therapy is oriented toward the present and future and does not emphasize pathology and the past. Although there is no limit to the number of sessions that can be scheduled, my attitude toward time is to create positive change as quickly as possible and practical. This therapy utilizes particular strengths and aptitudes that every client brings with them. These strengths are used in the most productive way to ameliorate problems and introduce flexibility

Today you or your family are one step closer to a new you, where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being. I see therapy (individual, couples and family ) as a collaborative effort to figure out what obstacles are getting in the way of you and your family 's happiness. We explore past and current behaviors, thoughts, relationships, and make connections between past and current experiences to help create change. We can work together to create a new experience that not only gets you through the storm to the calm, but can help you or your family thrive.
