About

My psychoanalytic training and my 20 years work experience has taught me the importance of understanding the full individual and his/her own unique experience in the world. In therapy, I provide a supportive environment that focuses on symptom-reduction while also exploring underlying roots of emotional discomfort. I encourage self-exploration, emotional processing and self-acceptance. I believe in helping clients understand how their past experiences impacts their lives, and in utilizing the therapeutic relationship to foster clients' growth and self-fulfillment. I find psychotherapy to be powerful and exciting and I consider it a privilege to help people strive for their potential.
In my private practice, I work primarily with adults and adolescents. I frequently work with individuals needing help with adjusting to significant life changes (i.e, coming out, sexual orientation, changes in relationships, marital status, career changes, beginning college, etc), coping with anxiety and stress, depression, self-esteem, LGBT issues, addiction and family troubles.
I am a bilingual, Spanish-speaking psychotherapist, My offices are located in areas with easy access to public transportation.
