Announcement icon I am conducting online sessions and will also conduct office sessions in September.
I work with individuals, couples, and groups utilizing a humanistic approach to focus on the whole individual and stress concepts such as free will, self-efficacy, and self-actualization. Rather than concentrating on dysfunction, I strive to help people see their life’s ongoing journey as an endless source of wisdom and draw on internal strengths. My specialty lies in helping clients with anxiety, depression, PTSD, relational issues, learning disabilities, low-self-esteem, and loss of purpose.
I completed a dual Masters degree in Counseling Psychology at Columbia University as well as a Masters in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, where my studies focused primarily on ritual and urban shamanism. I am a trainee of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) in MDMA-assisted psychotherapy.
I examine whether MDMA-assisted therapy can help heal the psychological and emotional damage caused by sexual assault, war, violent crime, and other traumas. I am bilingual and also conduct sessions in Spanish.
