Our areas of clinical specialty are: Trauma, sexual assult and abuse, human sexuality, depression, anxiety, family work, adoption and fertility issues. Group work and educational workshops are available.
Being bilingual and bicultural, we readily incorporate a multicultural perspective with cognitive-behavioral and family systems theory. Sessions can be held in English or Spanish. We are enthusiastic and interactive communicators. Together we bring a certain energy and personal touch to the treatment process, going against the typical therapist stereotype.
