About My Clients
I work primarily with young adults and adults. I often work with LGBTQIA and Latinx identified individuals. I would love to help if you are looking for support with life transitions, relationship difficulties, anxiety, trauma, depression, self-esteem, as well as identity exploration.
My Background and Approach
I am a licensed independent clinical social worker and psychotherapist. I provide trauma-informed, psychodynamic, and narrative psychotherapy. I also incorporate dialectical behavioral interventions as needed, with an emphasis on mindfulness-based practices. In the past I worked for several years in community mental health as well as in the field of HIV at the AIDS Action Committee of Massachusetts. I am originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I obtained my Bachelor’s degrees in Psychology and Anthropology through the University of Illinois at Chicago. I completed my Master of Social Work at Boston College, where I specialized in Mental Health. Most recently, I completed a post-graduate Certificate in the Treatment of Trauma at Boston University.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a bisexual Latina immigrant, I value the uniqueness of intersecting identities and how these shape people's lived experience. I enjoy learning from each person's unique story and working collaboratively towards goals. In my practice, I hope to create a safe space where feedback is welcomed at all times. I value reflecting on experiences of privilege and marginalization (for myself and for others) and view them as opportunities for growth. Attention to movements of social justice, harm reduction, LGBTQIA rights and immigrant rights are important in my work and my personal life. As a native Spanish speaker, I strive to provide culturally and linguistically sensitive care to my Spanish-speaking clients. (para servicios en español, puede contactarme con cualquier pregunta)
