Expertise

I work with adults and couples in a traditional office setting and online.  My therapy practice is dedicated to working with those who struggle with anxiety, depression, and high stress levels.  Many of my clients are highly successful people in the outside world who experience internal stress due to a life transition, a conflicted significant relationship, or work-life balance issues.  My approach is warm, proactive, respectful and engaged.  I see direct and authentic communication as the hallmark of effective therapy, built on a foundation of clearly defined therapeutic goals. 

Prior to entering private practice full time, I launched the Integrated Behavioral Health Program at Peoples Community Clinic--an innovative program that successfully treated 200+ people with depression and anxiety within it's first three years.  I continue to draw on my Integrated Behavioral Health background by collaborating with primary care providers and psychiatrists in private practice, so that my clients do not have to bridge gaps in communication between their helping professionals. 

I am bilingual in Spanish & English, trained in EMDR I & II and received certification from the Zur Institute in Telemental Health and Digital Ethics.  

While my background and experience is varied, I currently work with the following issues:

  • Loss of Motivation, Focus or Productivity 
  • Creating Digital Balance in Modern Family Life
  • Work-Life Balance Issues
  • Couples Therapy and Family Therapy
  • Therapy for Expats and Digital Nomads
  • Medical Trauma and Caregiver Stress
  • Secondary-Trauma and Burn-out in helping professionals
