My specialty is working with individuals or couples, who are willing to heal, grow, and are searching for deeper understanding of their relationship with themselves, others and nature. I also integrate the spiritual dimension and the cultural background of my clients helping them to explore their understanding of God and/or the Sacred as they understand it. Besides relationships, I will help individuals and couples find a deeper meaning and purpose in their lives. I have a very extensive and solid clinical, theological, and academic background in relational issues, men's issues, cultural adaptation, grief work, and spiritual growth and healing. Group therapy is also a modality that I have used with very positive results with young adults. The most special and unique aspect of my practice is the integration of the best in psychotherapy, spirituality, and cultural awareness. My practice is extensive in both English and Spanish for US and foreign born individuals.
