Profile
“Through collaborative work, I help clients create new narratives that will help them heal and manage the challenges they are facing.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I knew I wanted to be a therapist from the day I first read a book about childhood trauma when I was in high school. One impactful experience I had was when I volunteered in a group foster home in Buenos Aires, Argentina and I worked closely with youth who had painful trauma histories. When I returned to the United States, I began to work in a foster care agency with children and their families. I eventually obtained the degree I needed to become a mental health therapist. I strived to become as trauma-informed as possible and became certified in trauma-based cognitive behavioral therapy because so many people have had some form of trauma in their lives.
What should someone know about working with you?
Everyone's healing process is unique and there will be ups and downs. Through collaborative work, I help clients create new narratives that will help them heal and manage the challenges they are facing. While I cherish the therapeutic time and space, I believe that our work should be practiced outside of session and will often assign tasks for that purpose.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
My mother is a social worker who did not have the opportunity to obtain a college degree. I am the first person in my family to obtain one, but my mother taught me something that cannot be learned through a book: A life serving others is a life that is fulfilling and well lived. My life's mission is to help others and I can do this through healing the inner self with psychotherapy.
