Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
It is my experience that most people looking for a therapist want to know my specialty, years of experience (20), and approach to therapy. I work mostly with adults from diverse backgrounds, and with a variety of presenting problems. Being a Latin who immigrated to the U.S. for graduate school, I can relate very well to people experiencing problems with adjustment, mixed marriages, cultural differences, and losses such as identity, family and friends.I love working with couples, and with people who are experiencing difficulties at work, or dilemmas in regards to their future, their contribution to the world, the best way to get out of crisis. I am an active participant in your therapy, and use cognitive therapy as well as a family systems thinking in terms of my approach
