I believe that we all possess the ability to gain a deeper understanding of ourselves, which can serve as a guide in helping us to overcome long-standing or temporary upsetting obstacles in life. I have worked as a clinician in diverse settings;I'm currently receiving post-graduate training at the William Alanson White Institute 2016-2019.I provide psychotherapy in Spanish and English to children/adolescents, families, and also adults. I specialize in treating trauma related issues, difficulties with depression and/or anxiety that can, at times, create problems in different environments (work, school, at home) and within relationships.
I work from a more psychodynamic perspective, but I'm also able to incorporate components from a cognitive-behavioral modality such as CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) or DBT (dialectal behavioral therapy). Creative and expressive approaches such as, play and art therapy, are also utilized especially with children or teens.
In the initial assessment meeting, you and I will discuss ways in which therapy can best address your needs and/or your child's needs. Please don't hesitate to contact me for more information. Together we can find a way to achieve a greater well-being and work towards achieving emotional relief.
