About Me

I understand that seeking therapy requires courage, and I commend you for taking that leap toward personal growth and healing. If you often ask yourself questions such as, "Why do I experience such intense emotions or no emotions?" "How can I stop self-sabotaging behaviors and impulsive actions?" "Why are relationships so difficult?" " What steps can I take to heal from past trauma and address emotional pain?" "Why do I feel like a fraud?" "How can I find inner peace?" "Who am I?" I can help. I utilize only evidenced-based, highly researched therapy models such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) paired with Internal Family Systems (IFS), Polyvagal Theory, and Mindfulness to help you gain insight, build resilience, and develop healthy coping mechanisms. I also offer EMDR intensives that span several consecutive days. Supported by evidence-based research, these intensive treatments yield the same level of progress as regular sessions, which span months or even years. For eligible clients, I provide an EMDR-Intensive treatment plan that condenses six months of one-hour weekly therapy into three to four weeks.

Education & Experience

I attended the University of Santa Cruz and San Jose State University in California, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 1999. I completed my master’s degree in clinical social work at Barry University, Miami Shores, Florida, in 2020. I am currently completing a Clinical Sexology Ph.D. program through the International Institute for Clinical Sexology in Miami, and I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist.
