I offer psychotherapy to individuals, couples and
As a couple and family therapist, I see my clients in the context of
their relationships with others: their partners, their children, their
friends and families. We live in relationships.
People consult me for various reasons, such as to build a more positive
interaction with their partners, to cease struggling with the effects
of anxiety and depression, or to better understand and respond to life
changes. I have special expertise in the following areas:
- Couples therapy, including,
- Family therapy, including,
- Multicultural and biracial couples
- Individual therapy
- Families in transition
- Adult children's relationship with parents
Clearly understanding what creates problems and
how they affect our life offers the possibility of generating long-term
solutions and a sense of wellbeing that comes from lining up one's values
with one's way of living life. Together we identify the small and continuous
changes that lead one to reach their goals, such as increasing communication
and intimacy, generating harmonious relationships, working with unexpected
changes, learning how to establish connection and boundaries with others.
I have a particular interest in couple therapy because relationships
are fundamental to our lives. I also have experience on issues of migration
and immigration and how they contribute to a person's identity. I have
presented workshops at various institutions on experiences of migration
and immigration, and on what helps prepare individuals and families
when moving overseas. I find it fascinating to observe the effects of
hope as it transforms itself into intention and action.
I have had over 10 years of experience working with couples and families.
Adding to my experience, I am a licensed supervisor and provided clinical
supervision to Family Therapy students at the University of Maryland.
Currently I offer supervision to professional therapists who are interested
in expanding their clinical skills.
