Besides being a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) at Santa Clara University, I also received a Ph.D. in Human Sciences at the Research Institute of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. During this time, I published a book and several articles as well presented at national and international conferences.
Because Human Sciences is the study and interpretation of the experiences, activities, and artifacts connected with human beings, I have a more well-rounded view of psychology and the impact it has on people. Today I have my own private practice where I help adults, couples, families and teens cope with depression, anxiety, OCD, ADHD, relationship problems, PTSD and other psychological issues. Primarily I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) because of it’s proven effectiveness, and can provide therapy in Spanish or Portuguese as well as English.
