Profile
“My experience has taught me to use a trauma and attachment-based perspective in the work I do.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always been interested in family dynamics, relationships, culture, and values. I have traveled a lot and have worked abroad — I even got my master's degree in Mexico City. The program focused on social justice and taught me a lot about inequality and its effect on mental health. From studying and training in Mexico City and working in New York City, I have met and worked with people from many different backgrounds. I first worked at a nonprofit organization that helped families impacted by domestic violence. I have received specialized training in trauma, attachment, cognitive behavioral therapy, early childhood mental health, and parenting. My experience has taught me to use a trauma- and attachment-based perspective in the work I do.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am interested in getting to know you holistically and seeing how I can best support you. I am highly adaptable and flexible with my approach; however, I always offer a calm, reflective, and safe space for my clients.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe in the power of relationships to promote growth and change. I let my clients get to know me as much as they would like. I am not afraid to use my experiences and self as a therapeutic tool.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am excited about the growing field of infant mental health. Increased support for new parents and babies can help prevent negative outcomes and break intergenerational trauma.
