I can be of help in the treatment of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, trauma, phobias, addictive behaviors, and other clinical conditions causing distress and impairment. My approach is collaborative, with a strong focus on building resources that support wellbeing and personal growth.
Some people seek support, not because of symptoms or illness, but because of specific challenges or the wish to grow and overcome obstacles. Life abroad can pose unique challenges. It can also offer unique opportunities for rich personal growth. Whichever the reasons, our collaboration will support you with intelligent and sensitive care as you face challenges and create conditions for change. I am optimistic in seeing people, again and again, turn challenges into opportunities for growth and meaningful change.
My work with couples, many of them bicultural, aims to help partners understand each other’s unique experience, recognize needs and wants, and engage in supportive partnering. I use my own bicultural experience to help bring perspectives and to explore cultural issues.
I’m trained in the US and Argentina, with an integrative orientation (IP) that combines effective techniques and resources from many schools of psychology, social sciences, and human change approaches. I’ll be glad to tell you more about it any time.
For the past 20 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 also in NY, the CCHE-Columbia University, and the Morrison Center in Portland, OR.
Therapy works best when we feel safe, understood, and empowered. (Read more). Working with you is an honor and a privilege, and I hope to honor such privilege by offering you quality care. I am an ally to all diversity: cultural, ethnic, sexual, religious, and lifestyle. I am also committed to high standards of privacy and confidentiality so we can to talk about anything and everything that is important to you.
I’m sure there is more to mention, but I hope this is enough for a start. Please let me know if you have any questions or want to connect. I’ll be glad to speak or meet in a no-cost consultation.
