About

During my 22 years as a psychologist, I have worked with a wide range of conditions. I particularly focus on Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Substance Abuse, Grief, Domestic Abuse, Obesity, and Self Esteem. I provide services to adolescents, adults, and the elderly either in an individual, couples or a family format. When indicated I collaborate with Doctors and Psychiatrists to ensure effective treatment.
I was born in Bogota, Colombia and arrived in the United States at age 5. I am fluent in Spanish and English. I draw from Psychodynamic, Solution Focus, Cognitive Behavioral and Family Systems. I believe that all persons who genuinely desire change are capable of acquiring it.
