“Caminante, no hay camino…se hace camino al andar.”“Traveler, there is no path…a path is made by walking.” – Joan Samuel Serrat
My therapeutic focus is centered on the unique life story and strengths that my clients bring in with them. Having been a Spanish teacher and otherwise worked in many schools, I take into account the systems (such as family, school, culture, etc.) that the people I work with are a part of, and I tailor my interventions to work in collaboration with these systems. With an array of experiences working with different age groups in different parts of the world, my life adventures enable me to provide culturally and socially sensitive interventions. I am well-versed in crisis situations, having worked at in inpatient hospitals and juvenile prison, and am familiar with home-based, school-based, and work-based forms of therapy. I have particular expertise working with: teens who self-harm and/or deal with suicidal thoughts or urges, parents who are having difficulty finding effective means of discipline, families who struggle to work well together, and children for whom talk therapy is insufficient for meeting their therapeutic needs.
Please note: I am not currently accepting new clients.
