We have vast experience in providing psychological assessment and treatment services to children, adolescents, adults, and families.

I am a New York State Certified Mental Health Therapist, New Jersey Licensed Professional, and I am a bilingual (English / Spanish) Clinical Psychologist in Ecuador who can provide direct care psychological counseling services. We specialize in working with diverse and vulnerable populations. We also conduct psychosocial evaluations for immigration (Vawa law, crime victims, waivers, and political asylum cases). Being bilingual and bicultural gives me the opportunity to reach out to many people who need psychological help. I provide advice to children, adolescents, adults and families. I demonstrate a multicultural approach to counseling clients who are immigrants or who come from families who have immigrated to the United States. The multilevel model of psychotherapy, social justice and human rights provides a culturally sensitive framework for applying cognitive, affective and behavioral interventions.
