No matter how difficult your current circumstances may feel, psychotherapy can help you identify what is holding you back and help you develop the right strategies to feel connected with yourself and others. My goal in therapy is to assist you to find your own voice and to guide you to live life in your own terms.
My approach to psychotherapy is integrative, collaborative and engaged. I value the importance of exploring the past in order to identify and change those patterns that no longer serve you as they used to. I also draw from multiple theoretical orientations and techniques in order to tailor the best plan to help you accomplish your goals.
I specialize in unresolved childhood trauma, identity development, life transitions, difficulty navigating relationships, sexual identity, traumatic experiences, persistent depression and/or anxiety among others. As a Peruvian-born therapist, I enjoy working with the international community, third culture individuals and first generation Americans.
