As a Harvard educated and trained psychologist, with over 30 years of clinical experience, I am able to make a positive difference in people's lives. I'm a highly interactive and practical psychologist. I have a direct, active style that is solution-focused. I will help you make sense of your difficulties, make positive changes in your life and help you better manage whatever life history you have and the issues that are getting in your way. Building on your strengths, while giving you new tools to manage your difficulties is the essence of my work.

I am particularly experienced in treating those going through major life transitions, such as loss, divorce, illness or developmental changes; those with a history of trauma or loss; those with depressive or anxiety symptoms; as well as those with issues that interfere with: relationships, academic performance/work or creativity.

The mainstay of my practice has been American students and professionals. However, having been born in Bogota, Colombia, brought up bilingually, lived in Paris, as well as traveled extensively throughout the US and the world, I'm able to bring an international and multicultural perspective to my practice.
