About My Clients

You are taking the first step in a promising journey of self discovery and transformation. Allow me to support you as you find new ways of living life and relating to others. Let me help you untangle the knots that keep you from verbalizing your needs and feelings. If you cannot put into words what you feel, your hopes and what you dread, you may act in ways you don't understand or experience anxiety, anger and relational issues, among other afflictions.

My Background and Approach

My therapeutic approach is psychodynamic, i.e. it is a modality of "talk therapy" that will help you access the roots of your inner conflicts. Sometimes these conflicts manifest as sadness, anger, or anxiety. At other times, the conflicts reveal themselves through personal and relational patterns that you keep repeating again and again. I am a Licensed Psychoanalyst in New York State, and a State Certified Psychoanalyst in New Jersey. I completed the License Qualifying Program at the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis (NPAP), New York, New York. I am a Candidate Member of the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis. I received my PhD in Chemistry from the University of Puerto Rico.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Ancient wisdom tells us that "every difficulty in life presents us with an opportunity to turn inward and to invoke our own inner resources." (Epictetus). As a psychoanalyst, I will help you tap into the wealth of your inner strength so that you can live life to its fullest. I believe this in-depth work requires a certain intensity that can be achieved by increasing frequency of sessions; therefore, I'm only accepting patients who are willing to do 2 or more sessions per week. I work with individuals from all walks of life. Those who find themselves at the margins of society because of their identities will find a supportive therapist in me. I want to empower you to tell your own story in such a way that will give you freedom to write new chapters. I provide a non-judgmental space in which I will challenge you to look into your repetitive patterns and non helpful coping strategies that prevent you from enjoying life and relationships.
