I completed my graduate studies in 2000 and received my advanced licensure with recognition as clinical supervisor in 2004. I have held senior clinical positions in various inpatient and outpatient mental health settings such as the Children's Assessment Center, the Council on Recovery, and the University of Pittsburgh's Intensive Outpatient OCD program. Most recently, I worked for several years at the Menninger Clinic in Houston, Texas.
My areas of expertise include trauma, personality disorders, and dual diagnosis- people who struggle with addiction and mood disorders and/or anxiety. I am grounded in the psychodynamic framework, which explores how thoughts and feelings outside our conscious awareness impact our lives. I place emphasis on attachment and the quality of the relationship that we build together.
Clinical interests include working with integration of the mind/body, and working with young professionals and young adults with difficulties in launching into adulthood. I also provide Psychotherapy in Spanish.
