Why can’t I just be happy? Why is everything so difficult? Is life just endless suffering? Most of us are trying to rid ourselves of our anxiety by avoiding frightening situations and shielding ourselves from uncomfortable experiences. In doing so, our existence often becomes narrow and tedious. But what if we could learn to make room for the inevitable pains that life confronts us with and accept the experiences we cannot control. If we can become more psychologically flexible, we can then be present and do what matters most to us.
In our sessions, your values and goals will dictate the tools and interventions I employ. I am not here to tell you how to live, but help you identify and pursue the life you want to live. I believe strongly that therapy should be experiential, because it can allow for learning and growth that words struggle to capture.
I provide remote individual therapy to adults and specialize in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and other Anxiety Disorders. Call for a free 20 minute consultation, so that we can learn about each other and determine if we are a good fit. I am licensed in California and Washington, but live in Bellingham, WA, where I will soon be providing in-person visits.
¿Por qué no puedo ser feliz? ¿Por qué todo es tan difícil? ¿La vida es sólo un sufrimiento interminable? La mayoría de nosotros intentamos liberarnos de nuestra ansiedad evitando situaciones aterradoras y dejando a un lado las experiencias más incómodas. Poniendo en riesgo nuestro bienestar, nuestra existencia se vuelve a menudo estrecha y tediosa. Al lograr ser más flexibles psicológicamente, aprenderemos a enfrentar los dolores inevitables a los que nos presenta la vida y a aceptar las experiencias que no podemos controlar. De esta manera podremos estar más presentes en el dia a dia y hacer que nuestra vida tenga mas sentido.
En nuestras sesiones tus valores y metas definiran el tipo de intervención y herramientas que aplicaré. No estoy aquí para decirte cómo vivir, sino para ayudarte a resaltar tus fortalezas, mejorar debilidades, superar desafíos y lograr encontrar la vida que realmente mereces. Me especializo en el Trastorno Obsesivo-Compulsivo (TOC) y Trastornos de Ansiedad.
Como terapeuta bilingüe licenciado en el estado de California y Washington ofrezco terapia por video llamada. Pronto estaré ofreciendo visitas en persona en Bellingham, WA. Llame para una consulta gratuita de 20 minutos, para que podamos aprender el uno del otro y determinar si somos un buen equipo.
