Preferred Name: Maria Lydia
I am a Spanish speaking clinical psychologist licensed in New York State and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico. My parents’ ethnicity is Ecuadorian and Puerto Rican. I provide psychological services to the Latino population in their native language. I have over ten years of experience providing face-to-face services to disenfranchise individuals, minorities, and patients with chronic mental health illness. My experience is focused on working with immigrant families, victims of crime, domestic violence victims, and HIV/AIDS patients. I am presently providing psychological services to patients suffering from work related injuries. My interests are also to work with individuals suffering from inflammatory autoimmune disorders and “medically unexplained symptoms” related to chronic stress and trauma.
