About

‚ÄúIf you don‚Äôt climb the mountain, you‚Äôll never enjoy the view‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúSi no escalas la monta√Īa jam√°s podr√°s disfrutar el paisaje‚ÄĚ - Pablo Neruda

Welcome to my practice! I am an EMDR Certified Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is passionate about my work and a firm believer that you can ignite your self-determination and inner strength to lead you to find balance, clarity, and harmony in your life. These elements are key to experience healing and growth. I work with adults, teens, young adults, and couples who deal with a wide range of behavioral and emotional concerns. I was born and raised in South America. Therefore, I understand the often-stressful journey of immigration. I can also offer a deep compassionate space to process the challenges we face raising a family abroad. Taking a supportive stand and learning effective communication tools could help you increase the chances of overcoming cultural challenges personally or within those you care about.

Hola y bienvenidos a mi pr√°ctica! Tengo 17 a√Īos de experiencia ofreciendo apoyo psicol√≥gico individual, a parejas y familias. Mi pasi√≥n es ayudar al desarrollo integral de todos aquellos que no lo est√°n pasando bien. La vida diaria y todos sus desaf√≠os pueden llevarnos a sentirnos abrumados, solos o desamparados. Por eso y mucho m√°s es que me dedico a la psicoterapia. La Ansiedad, la Depresi√≥n, el D√©ficit de Atenci√≥n e Hiperactividad, el Stress y el impacto chocante del Trauma son reales y pueden afectar a cualquiera. Esas condiciones son el marco principal de mi trabajo. Ademas, me enfoco en el apoyo emocional de mis clientes que han experimentado un proceso migratorio lleno de desaf√≠os. Yo soy Sudamericana y por lo tanto tengo la experiencia de conocer de las dificultades de llegar a vivir a este pa√≠s. Tambi√©n conozco de los desaf√≠os que encontramos cuando hacemos una familia en los Estados Unidos y tratamos de criar a nuestros hijos usando y manteniendo nuestros valores y creencias familiares y culturales. Los invito a comunicarse conmigo si piensan que mi pasi√≥n y mi experiencia los puede ayudar y apoyar en estos momentos.
