Do you feel stuck in your life, unchallenged, dissatisfied and frustrated? Needing to change but not being able to move forward? My philosophy is that "everyone is deserving to live a satisfying life". I help people (individuals and couples) to understand their needs and to develop skills toward experiencing greater fulfillment. I provide an environment of support, understanding and thoughtfulness so that concerns and needs can be discussed, impasses can be understood and unblocked, and needed and wanted changes can be made.

More Info About My Practice

I am a bilingual psychotherapist with 20 years of experience.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

I have training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Cognitive-Behavioral therapy and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.

In psychoanalytic psychotherapy we explore and bring to awareness those repetitive patterns that drive you to behave in ways that are frustrating to you. In cognitive-behavioral therapy we explore beliefs (rational and irrational) that produce actions that a problematic for you. In emotionally focused therapy we explore the negative communication patterns (cycle) between you and your partner so that you have more awareness of the cycle and make significant interruptions to increase understanding and intimacy.
