I am an interactive and holistic therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support, to facilitate by offering inquisitive and non-judgmental questions and when appropriate to offer any practical feedback to help you effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate various modalities to help you identify behavioral patterns or unproductive perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more meaningful life.
The modalities I work from include traditional psychology frameworks of Humanistic, Gestalt and Interpersonal Process Therapy. I integrate Energy Psychology work that has a body-mind approach including Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT/Tapping) and Shamanism. I can guide you in more solution-focused strategies, acknowledge diversity/multicultural factors, use "cuentos"/storytelling, metaphors, and refer to archetypes and symbolism. Our work together may include you doing experiential exercises such as guided visualization, somatic emotional dialogues with your body, journaling/free-write, projects to help you uncover your blocks as well as the keys to your personal freedom.
I have experience in supporting others to transform challenges into opportunities in life areas such as family (life-work balance, parenting), relationships (boundaries, dating, friendship, supervisory, co-workers), personal development (confidence, leadership, determination), health (stress, grief, worry), spirituality (faith, belief, existential).
Among my areas of expertise are supporting others in the areas of: grief work, depression, anxiety, trauma, existential/spiritual, women's concerns, I am an Ally of the LGBTQ community, the immigrant and undocumented student concerns, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, life-work challenges and life transitions. I speak Spanish and am able to offer therapy in Spanish.
I offer a complimentary 20 minute phone appointment.
Individual sessions are 50 minutes. Couple's sessions are 75 minutes.
I provide a 'super bill' if you want to pursue reimbursement from your health insurance plan.
