English/Portuguese - Do you feel that you are not as happy as you think you could be? This happens because, usually, people keep insisting on the same things waiting for different results, which is not going to happen. Maybe you think that this is the only path to finding happiness. You can be experiencing anxiety, loss of a beloved one, depression, burnout, family issues, mood swings, and no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to find a way out. You have been brave in finding ways to deal with everything on your own. However, recognizing that we need help and asking for it, is even more courageous and resilient.

The entire process begins by identifying those stumbling blocks in the lives of the individuals that prevented them from achieving their desired goals. I maintain a high level of openness with my clients having realized over the years that what matters most in therapy is the client /therapist relationship.

When we feel like the weight of the world is on our shoulders, we often have difficulty caring for ourselves. We become easily overwhelmed, have difficulty with relationships, and feel stuck in an exhausting cycle we don't remember starting. As individuals in a world full of stressful and traumatic events, life can feel unbearably hard. As a counselor, I aim to help clients live a more than bearable life as they learn more about themselves and find the best way they can interact with the world around them.

Primarily I use person-centered along with cognitive-behavioral therapies. Nonetheless, I strongly believe in a holistic approach. I believe that every person is unique, and what works for one might not work for another.

Do you find yourself repeating the same patterns in your life that don't seem to be working for you? I believe that people, at any given moment, are functioning as well as they can, given the resources and knowledge they have in that moment. The therapy I provide is informed by methods that have been researched and proven to work. I aim to immediately target struggles and provide concrete tools to help my clients help themselves. My goal is to help them build the kind of lives they are looking for, in line with both their goals and their values, by approaching therapy scientifically and compassionately.

Mental health is a journey. As a therapist, with close to a decade’s worth of experience, my focus is person centered treatment. Meaning, no two people have the same exact path. As an individual that has not only provided therapy but has also received therapy, I am able to understand the importance of allowing my clients to work at their pace and be in control of their treatment with guidance from me. My experience with various treatment modalities allows me personalize treatment based on what will work best for each individual.

There are a lot of things that happen within us while we engage in our normal day to day lives. From our physiological processes to our mental and emotional processes. We spend a great deal functioning completely unaware of our internal world. Interestingly enough it is what’s inside of us that is the precursor to our behaviors and physical health condition. As a psychodynamic therapist I aim to help you come into contact with your inner person or what I refer to as your inner child. I review your childhood history to make sense of your current challenges. A lot of the ways we think and behave come from childhood learnings.

Psychologist, PsyD, LLC
I am interested in helping and in understanding. My ideal client would be someone, who is willing to take the necessary time to educate me about him or herself, and who would be willing to reflect on events involved in and outside of the therapy session. Relationships matter. I can provide advice, can problem solve, but prefer to work in a relational, psychodynamic approach, where together we can figure things out. I am an immigrant, who believes everyone can benefit from building a positive therapeutic relationship, where problems can be worked through and their meanings understood. Due to COVID, I also offer Telehealth.

Being a human being, immersed in this situation we call life, sometimes prompts challenges that cause us psychological distress and that can show up as anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns, preventing us from becoming the best possible version of ourselves and adversely impacting the quality of our lives. The average person sees this as something being "wrong" with them, without considering the root cause of their challenges. With some focused, honest introspection, a person can come to discover that they're often responding to something that's hidden from their awareness. It's never what seems the most obvious!

I help change the world by creating more agents of love. Trauma and loss interfere with our ability to love. I direct the client's attention to areas of their lives where they are experiencing the most distress and offer a safe space for the client to identify, understand, and let go of the beliefs and patterns of behavior that no longer serve them. By healing trauma, we are free to give and receive love. At The Safe Space, we help each other understand our pasts so we can identify and change patterns of behavior no longer serving us. Our goal will be to make reflection a cherished hobby.

English/Español/Portugues - It is common for us to feel lost and bleak in the modern age. Our-self worth is tied to a number of arbitrary metrics like productivity or economic viability, giving us a crushing sense of failure. Therapy can give back ownership of your life and instill hope where you see none. A better and more meaningful existence is possible for you.

What type of Newark 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 Newark?
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.
