About My Clients

I specialize in Career/Job Stress, Academic Overwhelm, Relationship Struggles, and Culture Shock & Cultural Identity Issues. I also have extensive experience working with clients wishing to overcome the challenges of living secularly in non-secular environments. Maybe its your first time considering therapy, and you're wondering how it works. Although you know that therapy should be helpful, it all seems kind of scary. The good news is that you'll remain in charge throughout the whole process!

My Background and Approach

I'm a mix of all sorts of cultural influences - hence my fascination with languages and helping my clients adapt to change. My mother tongue is English, but I also grew up speaking Spanish, with my years in Buenos Aires leaving me with an unmistakably Argentinian accent (which other Spanish- speakers tend to sometimes 'lovingly mock'). My European side is thanks to over 30 years spent living and working in France, where I picked up not only an incurable love for lavender crème brûlée and other deliciously fattening foods, but the ability to provide therapy in fluent French. All in all, this means that immigrants, foreigners, expats, you're my people! I have a first-hand appreciation for what it takes to move somewhere and to assimilate culturally and linguistically, and can relate to both to the challenges it brings and the resilience it leaves in its wake.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I place a great deal of importance in the therapeutic alliance, which is just a fancy name for the relationship between the two of us. Tons and tons of research show great alliances make for great therapeutic results. So, from the get-go you and I will discuss how we can make this alliance as strong as possible, and what sorts of things you think could cause a rupture in our relationship and how we could work towards repairing any eventual ruptures. I've been to therapy before, and I myself once 'dumped' a therapist because I felt grossly misunderstood. From my standpoint, I felt dismissed because to me, they disregarded my worldview and instead imposed their own. I vowed that from then on I would empower my future clients with the express permission to tell me if I offend them, if I misunderstood something.... or piss them off. Clients dumping their therapists due to ruptures is indeed a 'thing,' and it prevents clients from making the progress they wish to make. Let's prevent that!
