I'm a holistic individual who remains unbiased to the experiences and feelings of others. I feel humbled by being able to help my clients!
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in New York, NY
I was initially an anthropologist which allowed me to learn and integrate understanding of different cultures, norms, values and religions. This has helped me to explore the inner experiences of my clients with an incorporated lens with my clinical background. As a Latina, I understand the experiences of BIPOC individuals and have experienced microaggressions. This personal experiences, combined with my education has allowed me to reflect to my clients in a more sensitive and personal manner.
I was trained in EMDR by EMDR Consulting, which was founded by Roy Kiessling, LISW. His approach includes the usual EMDR process with an integrative approach of understanding the negative cognitions that may be evident in the trauma, behaviors, thoughts, or experiences. If you are new to EMDR, feel free to look at a short video on my website describing EMDR.
I am a Gottman Couples Therapy Level 2 clinician. I love helping couples through there "love maps" and finding new ways to solve problems that feel that have been never ending. Although Gottman trained, I do use a holistic and integrative approach to couples counseling since relationships are complicated and sometimes need different tools.
