I believe that beyond the science and the art of mental health treatment, psychotherapy is an existential endeavor, in which people come to terms with challenges and the possibilities of being human.  I believe this requires a psychotherapist to be both worldly and introspective, with both humor and compassion. Having lived and worked in Latin America, I am fluent in Spanish and sensitive to people of diverse cultures.  I bring my experience as visual artist and a corporate professional to my work with a wide range of clients.  Feel free to browse my individual site.
