my work

I adapt my specific approach on a case-by-case basis to meet the emotional and cognitive needs of my clients. For example, my sessions with an 8-year-old might incorporate experiential play therapy, whereas my sessions with an adolescent or young adult might engage with more traditional talk therapy. In short, I tailor my services to the needs and motivations of my clients and their families. 

My services

I am able to meet with my clients either in the office or at their preferred environment such as their home. The latter allows us to meet at a location in which you or your child feels most at ease. Furthermore, I am bilingual in English and Spanish. In treating my clients, I draw primarily from traditional therapeutic methods and evidence-based approaches supported by research. These treatment modalities include the following among others: Family-based Therapy (also known as the Maudsley Approach), which recognizes the supportive roles families play in treatment; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which looks at how thoughts influence feelings and behaviors; and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which teaches core skills such as mindfulness, emotion regulation, and the importance of interpersonal relationships.
