If you are reading this, you are likely at a point in your life where you’ve begun to consider if it might be the right time to take a leap and seek help to cope with struggles that have become too overwhelming to manage on your own. Here’s the good news: you don’t have to manage those struggles alone. Working together, we can explore your challenges, develop strategies for coping, and get you moving toward the life you both want and deserve.
In my experience, meaningful therapeutic work can only occur in the context of a genuine relationship that is marked by trust, warmth, mutual respect, and firm, but loving, boundaries. As we build this connection, I will remain as committed to you and your progress as I expect you will be. I will be there by your side, walking through the muck with you, and reminding you of what you’re capable of in those moments where fear has you doubting your resilience.
My previous clients would tell you that I am easy to talk to, engaging, and collaborative. I won’t pretend that I have all the answers for you, but I will help you figure out the answers for yourself. I infuse humor into my therapeutic practice, and I’m not afraid to push you, or tell you what you don’t want, but probably need, to hear.
I work with adults and adolescents of all sexual orientations, genders, and cultural backgrounds, and provide therapy to individuals, couples, and families. My specialties include couples therapy and treating eating disorders, trauma-related struggles, depression, and anxiety. As a Cuban emigrant, I am also particularly sensitive to the unique needs of ethnic minority clients, and can provide therapy in English and Spanish.
Whether this is your first time in therapy, or you’ve been in therapy for most of your life, I promise to meet you where you are. Together, we will unload what is weighing you down and figure out how to help you move towards a more fulfilling life.
So, take the leap, make the call, and let’s begin this journey together.
