I work with individuals and couples who are going through a difficult time, and/or looking to make a positive change in their life. My areas of expertise include: Anxiety and Panic Disorders, Depression and mood disorders, stress, life transitions, and relationships. I want to help you create the kind of life you want, your life can change! I individualize my approach to your needs, using different psychological approaches, with focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and psychodynamic.
Couple therapy - I work with couples who are interested in improving their relationships - communication problems, lack of physical and emotional intimacy, infidelity, trust issues, conflicts-resolution, personality differences, financial conflicts. Individual therapy - anxiety and mood disorders, relationships, life transitions, parenting, and women issues (pregnancy, postpartum depression, menopause).
Through the development of therapeutic relationship, I help individuals, and couples better understand the issues they are presenting with, their needs and how to help themselves live the life they want. I offer a safe, respectful, and nurturing exploratory therapeutic environment that is culturally sensitive.
