Clinical Social Work/Therapist , LCSW-R , BCD

(646) 392-7220
I am a licensed bilingual (English-Spanish speaking) psychotherapist with 13+ years clinical experience working with children, adolescents, families, adults, seniors, & couples- diagnosing & treating behavioral health conditions. I'm an NASW member since 1997 & Board Certified since 2002. My theoretical orientation is eclectic- encompassing systems & cognitive behavioral theories, brief therapy & solution-focused principles. I use proven techniques to reduce emotional symptoms & stress, change behavior, & improve quality of life. This is done by focusing on the patient's primary relationships; identifying & developing strengths/coping skills; emphasizing acceptance of responsibility for one's decisions; & by proactively working to prevent problem re-occurrence.
