Thank you for visiting.
I’m a licensed psychologist helping individuals and couples in Buenos Aires. I offer treatment for mental health as well as support for adjustment and wellness. As bicultural expat myself, I’m experienced in helping clients care for their needs as they navigate challenges abroad and away from home.
I can be of help in the treatment of clinical symptoms, including those of Depression, Anxiety, grief, trauma, insomnia, fobias, substance use, and other experiences affecting wellbeing and functioning.
Many clients seek support, not because of symptoms, but because they want help facing challenges or starting important personal change. In all cases, I commit to creating a space where you feel safe, cared, encouraged, and empowered. I love helping people and working with you would be an honor.
Today, therapy and counseling are two dimensions of the same integrated psychological care to offer you emotional and practical support. We can work on short-term or long-term goals.
My clinical approach is based on Integrative Psychotherapy, a modern scientific approach to helping that integrates best practices from various counseling and therapeutic models, including Psychoanalysis, CBT, Humanistic, Interpersonal, and Systems approaches. I am good at identifying strengths in people and making it a priority to help clients realize them. I practice mindfulness in my personal life, and bring such knowledge to work in sessions whenever helpful.
For the past seventeen years, I’ve been fortunate to work with inspiring colleagues and clients in hospital, research, and education settings: at NY-Presbyterian Hospital in NYC, the Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene in NY, the Morrison Center in Portland -Oregon, and at Alberdi Clinic and private practice in Buenos Aires.
My office is supportive of all diversity: ethnic, sexual, religious, life style. I hope to create a space where we can talk about anything. Communication is private and confidential.
I’m sure there is more to say, but I hope this is enough for a start. Please let me know if you have any questions or want to connect. We can meet in my office or speak on the phone.
I look forward to being of support.
