About My Clients

***UPDATE JULY 2020: I AM CURRENTLY COMPLETELY BOOKED AND NOT ACCEPTING ANY NEW CLIENTS***

My Background and Approach

I graduated with advanced degree (MS) in Psychology in Spain in 2004. My first experience was at a sex therapy clinic that treated all kinds of individual and relationship problems, such as lack of intimacy, infidelity, sex addiction and sexual dysfunctions. Since moving to the US, my focus has been on various forms of trauma and Complex PTSD, starting with several years working with foster youth and families in Florida. While my primary role was helping the youth, I also assisted foster and adoptive families in finding tools to better care for these vulnerable children, who often had behavioral difficulties at home and at school. In my MSW degree, I specialized in Mental Health and Migration Studies. Since graduating in 2017, I have worked primarily with victims of domestic violence and sexual assault, covering a wide spectrum of ages, ethnic and socioeconomic groups, including the immigrant/refugee population. I am 40-hour ICDVP accredited as a domestic violence professional.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a firm believer in the mind-body connection, I encourage my clients to find activities outside therapy that help them feel joyous and balanced. My therapeutic approach uses a blend of evidence-based techniques and Eastern philosophies. I believe there is power in being fully present, and that we are ALL connected, ever-evolving beings. I believe in the Positive Parenting model and view couples and families as dynamic organisms. This means that problems rarely belong to one person alone -with the exception of domestic abuse. Two of my goals for 2020 are getting certified in Brainspotting (a sensory approach to PTSD) and as a Yoga instructor. For my own self-care, sleep and human connection are fundamental to my sanity. Practicing yoga calms my mind, whereas dancing and spending time in the sun lift my spirits!
