Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; I work in private practice as well as in a community clinic . My practice includes: individuals, families, adolescents, children, and couples. With over eight years of experience as a mental health therapist, I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, anxiety, addictions, depression, and severe trauma. I am a Certified Eating Disorder Specialist and a Certified EMDR Therapist. In my time as a therapist, I have practiced in both residential and outpatient settings, and have done extensive work with trauma and crisis intervention. I have been afforded the opportunity to obtain vast experience treating adolescents, children, and their families in various therapeutic settings. These experiences have afforded me the opportunity to develop effective strategies in working with highly resistant youth, in both short-term and long-term treatment. In my therapeutic work I use an authentic and humanistic approach with my clients, in order to provide them with a safe and non-threatening environment. My goal is to allow clients the opportunity to express themselves freely and honestly without fear of judgment. I integrate humanistic, existential, and systemic models of therapy, and customize my treatment approach to adapt to individual client needs. I have extensive experience working with the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing population, and am proficient in American Sign Language. In addition, I am also fluent in Spanish.
