Profile
“I have recently focused my practice on assisting people with personal struggles in their relationships with loved ones, dating concerns, and difficulties relating to others in various environments (work, dating, social, or family environments).”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I am a therapist who has worked with individuals, couples, and families for many years. I earned a master's degree in psychology from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina and have worked as a psychoanalyst for many years. I also graduated from New York University with a master's degree in social work. In New York City, I've constantly expanded and improved my understanding of psychodynamic psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, and therapeutic abilities. Since moving to New York City, my personal and professional lives have changed dramatically. All of this is due to the human and cultural variety I've encountered in this fantastic city. It has provided me with a wealth of experience working with a variety of clinical diagnoses and populations. However, I have recently focused my practice on assisting people with personal struggles in their relationships with loved ones, dating concerns, and difficulties relating to others in various environments (work, dating, social, or family environments). With a friendly, welcoming approach, I will assist you in analyzing your unconscious patterns and repetitions. During the psychotherapy process, you will learn more about yourself and get the skills you need to better connect with yourself and others. I also work with couples willing to put in the necessary time and effort to strengthen their relationship. However, bear in mind, relationship counseling is not covered by insurance. I can address shyness, inhibition, low self-confidence and esteem, controlling behavior, feelings of anxiety, indecisiveness, poor decision-making, self-worth, couple problems, couple dynamics, sex and intimacy, communication, premarital issues, infidelity, and other issues at my New York clinic.
What should someone know about working with you?
I like working with clients who are eager to change or improve themselves. Therapy, in my opinion, is a valuable tool for those who recognize the worth of the therapeutic process and are prepared to push themselves. I understand that beginning psychotherapy may be frightening and challenging for many people, particularly those unsure where to begin, what to anticipate, or worried about feeling overwhelmed by the process. As your therapist, I will be there for you every step of the way and support you and your therapy. I don't provide homework, but I ask for regular attendance since it's the only way to get the most out of treatment. Sessions should be held weekly at first. Otherwise, the advantages may be endangered or anxiety may become too excessive between sessions.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
With my clients, I discovered that many things have changed in unanticipated ways. New Yorkers, for example, are used to being in a hurry; the metropolis that never sleeps has no idea how to come to a halt. Some people have learned to appreciate how difficult it is to live and work in New York. COVID completely changed the game. Work schedules, expectations, and new paradigms in the workplace were among the most significant changes. Many of my clients found new career opportunities and left overworked jobs and underpaid jobs, pursued their passions, or relocated outside of the city. Personal time and personal space took on new meaning in this environment. Psychotherapy, along with other essential things like family and friends, may now be a part of your day. Clients and therapists may benefit from the convenience and availability of virtual therapy in New York or Florida. Still, teletherapy is not appropriate for everyone or every case. People suffering from severe depression, addictions, or eating disorders, in my opinion, should attend in-person sessions. Online psychotherapy is an excellent option if you want to focus on improving specific areas of your life or relationships.
How can you get in touch with me?
