I am also interested in Men's issues and exploring how men come into an authentic sense of themselves in relationship.
I am interested in cultivating a gentle curiosity, attentiveness and, if possible, a sense of humor in the clients I am privileged to meet. Our family experience informs the way we experience ourselves and how we make our way in relationships. I'm interested in exploring practical avenues for effecting communication that includes mindful awareness, appropriate boundaries and empathic connection. As reactivity is practically identified and calming is learned, I want to leaven the re-discovery or re-defining of a life narrative where, courage, integrity and joy are woven in. I want to encourage growth in those areas where healing is needed.

I work with men on men's issues .
My practice serves a wide variety of persons, emphasizing depression and anxiety. I work with children as young as six, but the majority of my practice now centers on work with adolescents and adults. My client and I try to develop a collaborative relationship that incorporates various elements, including expectations for outcome, open communication with my client, and the creation of an environment that fosters trust. I favor a pragmatic, experience-based approach that emphasizes coping skills, resilience, and each person's strengths. I also emphasize an understanding and respect for the role that emotions play in decision-making.

If you are seeking a therapist, it stands to reason you could use a hand with some challenge in your life. Forging an alliance with a mental health counselor can be one of the more significant relationships one creates. I aim to listen in a way that makes you feel safe exploring your emotional depths. I will point out things you have said and strengths you possess when you most need to be reminded of them. Bring your sense of humor. While this endeavor is one I take seriously, laughter can sometimes be the momentary vacation from ourselves and our challenges that we need.

As a Latino Queer Therapist, I have learned that understanding the intersections of my identities and how I show up in multiple spaces has been imperative to my personal growth and my understanding of belonging.  Growing up, I always felt othered and often times unwanted. Therapy for me is about learning to understand our inner dialogues, validate our emotional experiences, and effect change in a way that is consistent with our desired narrative.

Depression feels like a weight, sucking the energy from a person’s body. It amplifies that pessimistic voice in our heads and clouds our thoughts and drains us. Anxiety feels like a constant worry or uneasiness letting us know we need to pay attention to something, or we need to be on alert. It becomes a problem when the feelings are so overwhelming that it hinders our everyday actions and we begin to avoid things/people. Using evidence-based treatment methods, I support clients in finding balance with their priorities and values to cultivate peace and joy.

With over 9 years clinical experience, I am passionate about using evidence-based practices to help empower you every day, not just when you are in crisis. Primarily using Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, along with Person-Centered and Humanistic approaches I work diligently to create a welcoming, supporting and safe environment where individuals can feel free to express themselves. Working through difficult times alone can often feel overwhelming and defeating without help.

I help kids, teens, and families who have been impacted by chronic or terminal illness, or the loss of a loved one. Throughout my experience working in a medical setting, I’ve seen firsthand the importance of expressing difficult experiences through art. Often, the deep, painful feelings of grief can’t be expressed through words. In art therapy, we don’t need words. I use my training and experience in art therapy and counseling to support you through these difficult life experiences.

Does is feel like anxiety and depression are taking over your life? Are you fighting that powerless feeling, trying to hold on to hope, determined to find some way out of that trap? You may already know where it all started or you may have no answers to the "why's". I can help you find, name and clear out the roots of your suffering. Once the roots are cleared, you will find that change is easy and natural. Clients tell me that it sometimes feels like a miracle, but the power of this therapy is rooted in science. It is simply working with an understanding of how memories are held in our bodies and subconscious mind.

As a Clinical Psychologist for the past 30+ years, I have worked with individuals, couples and families with a wide variety of issues and concerns. While problems need to be identified, I prefer to focus on the strengths that are often obscured by the stress and the immediate crisis. As the stress becomes manageable, so too can we together discover the strengths that will result in solutions, growth and improvement. I look forward to sharing that challenge with you.

What type of Alexandria mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Alexandria?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
