I pride myself on meeting my clients where they are, and working collaboratively with each of my clients and couples. We all at times go through periods when processing, whether towards change or healing, becomes necessary. I hope to make that process a bit more comfortable, so that you are not alone, and also to help you move through your journey with integrity and intention. Many of my clients report feeling it to be easier to approach difficult topics due to us having a friendly relationship as a foundation. I believe that foundation is in part created due to our efforts in seeing and validating their own internal strengths.

One of the many things I enjoy about working with clients is being able to work with people across the lifespan and in various modalities. The ability to provide individual therapy to children, adolescents and adults; family therapy; and couples therapy, gives me the opportunity to work in collaboration with clients on a range of issues, needs, and goals. Ideally, clients are seeking therapy to work on something and are able to identify their hopes for therapy. In times where a loved one is seeking therapy for their child, spouse, parent, etc; I do seek to ensure that whomever participates in treatment is a willing participant.

People can feel broken and lose faith in themselves. As a therapist, I always emphasize that they are not broken and just need to be reminded of the resiliency and strength that they have in them to overcome pain and suffering. My mission is to provide appropriate guidance and help through this journey of healing and recovery using mainly Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness. I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space for individuals to explore their challenges. I also work collaboratively with my clients to empower them and to actualize their full potential.

As a licensed clinical social worker, I believe in every person's capacity to heal, grow and foster deep transformation in their lives. In my practice, I act as a companion to adolescents, teens, and adults who have powerful stories to tell. These may be rooted in histories of complex trauma and pain, new explorations into self and identity, grief in the midst of life transitions, and challenges related to feeling "at home" in one's own body. Ofrezco todos los servicios en español y estoy feliz hablar con usted, por teléfono y en persona, sobre sus intereses, preferencias y esperanzas para la psicoterapia y su salud mental.

Intense emotions and obsessive thinking often take us out of the present moment and slow our progress towards a life of passion, presence and purpose.

It is my belief that therapy should revolve around the individual and be adapted to meet that individual's specific needs and concerns. Mental illness and behavioral health issues present differently in every individual which is why I focus on treating each person's specific needs. My experience spans vastly, from crisis work to therapy in numerous settings including, hospitals, communities, private practices and schools. Prior to completing my Masters in the US I studied in Italy which allowed me to view mental health in a different light and learn approaches to treatment such as water and music therapy.

Modern life presents a number of challenges for adults and families. It can be difficult to balance all of the conflicting demands, especially if we are also trying to care for others or carrying the weight of past traumas or other unresolved issues. This can lead to increasing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and anger, and can interfere with the relationships we value and need. None of us are perfect, but we all deserve the chance to live a life consistent with our values and goals.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Therapists
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.
