Profile
“My approach recognizes you as the expert in your own life and seeks to normalize, provide compassion, and convey patience as we work through the patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that have gotten you to where you are.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Wanting to help people might sound like a cliche but it’s the truth as the answer to what led me toward becoming a therapist. Growing up in a Colombian and Italian household, I never knew that therapy existed as a service to assist us with processing challenging life events. I remember going through moments of isolation as an adolescent, of wanting to speak to someone about what I was going through, and I can say with confidence that a therapist would have provided the safe space to work through my thoughts, emotions, and behavior after stressful experiences. I hope, through my career as a mental health counselor, to continue to advocate and normalize counseling as a means of fully realizing our authentic and healthy selves. I have had the honor of working for several years in a community mental health clinic in Brooklyn, which has helped to shape my approach of tailoring each session to the client’s individual experiences, culture, values, strengths, and goals.
What should someone know about working with you?
My approach recognizes you as the expert in your own life and seeks to normalize, provide compassion, and convey patience as we work through the patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that have gotten you to where you are. Whether you are experiencing challenging life events, mental health symptoms that are distressing and blocking you from doing the things you’d like to be doing, and/or would like to strengthen your connection to your values, I’ll work alongside you with evidence-based practices and interventions while being light on the homework. While I have had experience working with a wide range of diagnoses and different levels of need in a clinical setting, my practice currently focuses on working through depression and anxiety-related issues that may be impairing your day-to-day functioning. We will work together to create small, actionable objectives that will provide momentum and lead us toward larger goals that you hope to achieve in your life.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I participate in continuing education courses and training through platforms that provide up-to-date resources, articles, and courses from authoritative figures in the mental health field (van der Kolk, Beck, Yalom, Gottman, etc.). I am also continuously reading and absorbing information, not just from the mental health field but from other genres (both fiction and non-fiction) and areas of interest that help to keep me culturally-competent and open to the complexities of the human experience. Thanks to my experience in a community mental health clinic, I have been fortunate enough to build connections with other mental health providers who have helped me grow as a professional and who I hope to assist in return. This continuous learning and experience-building has made an impact on my ability to connect with clients and align clients with providers who are the best fit for them, whether it be myself or another mental health professional.
