I am a Clinical Social Worker with over twenty years of experience in clinical practice. I received my social work degree from Columbia University School of Social Work where I now teach as a part of their adjunct faculty. My clinical interests include family therapy, trauma-informed care, immigration, anti-oppression and diversity, LGBTQ empowerment, spirituality, working with marginalized communities, and community-based mental health.
In the last ten years I have specialized in trauma therapy, assisting clients with complex psychological trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP). I have extensive training and practice in psychodynamic psychotherapy, family systems therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Family Therapy, and Theraplay. I am currently on faculty with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute. In addition to clinical social work I am a interfaith minister and spirituality is an integral part of my life and my work.
I formerly served as a counselor faculty at Hostos Community College of the City University of New York and worked in several community-based mental health clinics around New York City. I am currently on faculty with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute; The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy in the Trauma Studies Program and the Families and Couples Treatment Services (FACTS); and the Integrative Trauma Certificate Program of the National Institute for the Psychotherapies. I am also an Adjunct Lecturer at Columbia University School of Social Work and at Smith College School of Social Work. I formerly served on the Executive Committee of The Trauma Studies Program of the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy, on the Board of the National Association of Puertorrican and Hispanic Social Workers and on the Board of the No More Fear Foundation. I live in the Bronx with my partner and our son.
