I have a passion for working with couples and individuals experiencing relationship issues as well as mood, anxiety disorders and history of trauma and/or abuse. I enjoy with people that are ready to create change in their lives utilizing their strengths and honoring their beliefs and values. I strongly believe that there is hope in most situations and that we all face challenges to help us grow. I see the counseling process as a collaborative one where together we identify ways to meet your needs and offer support as you go through the process. I use a cognitive behavioral-based approach that helps me assist you in identifying how the way you think, feel and your past experiences relate to how we behave. For couples, I use the Gottman Couples Therapy Method that is researched based and allows me to help you identify strengths and areas of need before we start the process to create a targeted treatment plan that specifically targets those areas of need. If you would like additional information or would like to consult contact me.

Tengo pasion por trabajar con parejas e individuos que experimentan problemas de relacion, asi como desordenes de estado de animo o ansiedad y antecedentes de trauma y/o abuso. Disfruto trabajar con personas que estan listas para crear cambios en sus vidas utilizando sus fortalezas y honrando sus creencias y valores. Creo firmemente que hay esperanza en la mayoria de las situaciones y que todos enfrentamos desafios para ayudarnos a crecer. Veo que el proceso de consejeria como un trabajo colaborativo donde juntos identificamos maneras de satisfacer sus necesidades y ofrecer apoyo a medida que pasa por el proceso. Utilizo un enfoque cognitivo y de comportamiento que me ayuda a identificar como su forma de pensar, sentir y sus experiencias pasadas se relacionan con como nos comportamos. Para parejas uso un metodo que se basado en investigaciones que me permite ayudar a identificar las fortalezas y las areas de necesidad antes de iniciar el proceso para crear un plan de tratamiento dirigido especificamente a las areas de necesidad.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

In my experience I have come across people that have had disappointing experiences in counseling in the past. They wait too long to seek help afraid that it will happen again. I hear very often "it did not help". I have come to enjoy working with this types of clients a lot. I do a thorough assessment to make sure we are addressing the areas you need and use the appropriate tools to do so. Educating those I work about the counseling process and what treatment options are available has been very valuable to me and those I have worked with before. In additional I have always emphasized that if at any time we together identify I am not able to support you in meeting your needs I will do my best to provide the appropriate referrals.
