COUNSELING AND PSYCHOTHERAPY
IN-PERSON AND ONLINE, IN ENGLISH, SPANISH AND GERMAN
I have been practicing psychotherapy for 30 years and work with people – adults, adolescents, couples and families – who present a variety of psychological problems: anxiety and depression, trauma, emotional problems causing psychological distress or suffering, personal crises, relationship conflicts, breakups, losses, family coexistence difficulties, work stress, life transitions, etc.
I complement Adlerian psychotherapy with techniques from other psychotherapeutic currents, for example, systemic therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy, to offer an optimal fit between the patient’s presenting problems and the treatment.

According to Alfred Adler’s Individual Psychology (Adlerian psychology), people differ in the way we seek to achieve a sense of belonging and our place in the world. The strategies we use to achieve belonging are key to coexistence with other people, to our happiness and to our mental health. If these strategies, normally deeply rooted in childhood, no longer work as before (usually due to a change in life circumstances), we experience disorientation that causes discomfort. If the psychological price that we pay to achieve our goals through these strategies becomes too high, we enter a crisis, experience suffering and may develop psychopathological symptoms. This discomfort or suffering is what often leads a person to seek professional help.
