My Approach to Helping
I am a bilingual (English and Spanish) Licensed Professional, a Nationally Certified Counselor and a Certified Traumatologist who specializes in mood and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, multicultural counseling, relationship issues and problems associated with emotional and physical abuse. I combine my expertise in cognitive behavioral therapy with new approaches including EMDR, solution focus therapy and brief therapy. Being myself an immigrant from Italy, I have over 20 years experience in counseling and training short-term international sojourners as well as immigrants who reside in the greater Washington, D.C. area.
I have extensive experience in counseling individuals who face trauma, domestic abuse and emotional abuse. I am able to offer individual, couples and group counseling in Spanish and Italian
