I provide a warm and empathic environment that focuses on individual strengths to help my clients cope with life challenges and foster a sense of meaning in life. I help clients cope with issues related to: immigration and acculturation stress; relationship problems; depression; anxiety; trauma; academic and job-related struggles; and grief and loss. I consider it a privilege to hear a client's personal story and collaboratively work towards a greater understanding of oneself to reduce distress, set achievable goals and make long lasting changes.

I work from an integrative perspective, incorporating psychodynamic (insight-oriented), mindfulness and cognitive-behavioral approaches in order to foster transformitive change. I emphasize the importance of relationships in shaping who we are and how we experience our lives.

Originally from Argentina, I am bilingual (Spanish/English) and bicultural and work with clients in either language. I enjoy working with people from a wide range of cultural, international, socioeconomic backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities.
