A Marriage and Family Therapist with extensive experience working with couples, I do premarital counseling for anxiety and fear of commitment, communication when intimacy has gone. Infidelity: forgiving is possible. Divorce, remarriage, and step-parenting. I work with life's transitions, partners being on different timelines regarding parenthood, depression, anxiety, challenges of being single in a couples world, changes in career or breaks in relationships, romantic or familial. I am interactive, empathetic. My goal: connect you with your inner strengths, build up your self-esteem, and move towards the next steps of your lives.

My practice looks at family, couples, parents, and their communication patterns, and helps break destructive habits in relationships. We explore various ways to understand thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. No judgment, or criticism: I listen, join and reframe the issues in new, more adaptive ways with practical, helpful, immediate tools for change.

I do therapy in English and in French, an office in Manhattan and one in Westchester. I have experience with changing countries and cultures, divorce, being single, single parenting and stepfamily issues. I am a strategic, and solution-focused therapist, helping you move from feeling stuck to making positive changes.

Comprendre et dépasser l’émotionnel Être psychothérapeute requiert une grande curiosité, un renouvellement permanent des idées et une volonté d’ouverture vers d’autres formes de cure. J’intègre un traitement axé spécifiquement sur l’exploration en profondeur de l’émotion qui inhibe et bloque l’équilibre personnel et familial. Je participe activement pendant les séances tout en respectant les émotions de mes patients sans jugement ni contrainte. Je m’intéresse profondément à la vie de chacun, aux cheminements passés et présents. Nous travaillons ensemble et formant une equipe solide.

Restaurer l’équilibre compromis Ce sentiment de ne plus savoir que faire, de se noyer dans l’anxiété et ses incertitudes affecte évidemment nos relations interpersonnelles. Souvent l’équilibre de la vie de famille s’en ressent. Mon objectif est d’encourager la communication entre conjoints, entre parents et enfants.

En dernier lieu, je suis spécialisée dans les transitions et adaptations aux contraintes et tensions résultant de l’expatriation ou des familles internationales. Je vous aide à « passer le cap », à trouver en vous les ressources pour s’intégrer. Étant parfaitement bilingue et maîtrisant l’Espagnol j’ai une conscience claire des différences culturelles.
