Sometimes we encounter challenging moments in our lives that bring us to therapy so that we can find a way to cope or think about the challenge differently. Most importantly, we need a place to feel safe and accepted while we talk through these challenges. The therapeutic relationship is one that supports change, encourages growth and new perspectives, and is a testing ground for new ways of managing and expressing feelings. The change begins in therapy and spreads to other areas of your relationships such that you have the potential to feel more in control, valued, and genuine in your life’s pursuits.
My years of experience that led up to a post-doctoral residency at Herald Square Psychology include helping a wide variety of people in a number of different settings from private practice and a psychiatric unit to community mental health. I have treated children, parents, couples, adults, and clients of many ethnic and racial, gender, and sexual identities with challenges of being in crisis, fearing abandonment and rejection, relationship distress, anxiety, and depression. I earned a bachelor of arts degree from American International College, and a master of science degree and a doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Carlos Albizu University in Miami, FL.
