I realized my passion for psychology during my teenage years. I was always the one ready to assist any friend who was going through a rough time in life. If you are looking for someone to share your difficulties, someone who can understand, sympathize, emphasize, and be non-judgmental; you have just found the right person. I’m a very compassionate and positive individual, with the goal of making a difference in people’s lives. I use a vast diversity of tools that allow me to deliver the highest standards of psychotherapy for all my clients.Some of my skills include, but are not limited to trauma, crisis, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and personality disorders. I treat individuals, couples, and teenagers. I’m eclectic – I may use cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, solution focus, reality, person centered, GOTTMAN, or other approaches that can better support or benefit the client. I am trilingual (English, Portuguese, and Spanish), and offer culturally sensitive care.
