Ana María is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who received her MSW at Syracuse University. She encourages self-awareness, understanding, and acceptance of emotions while teaching how to regulate them. She helps to manage distress tolerance, effective communication, and how to create and maintain healthy boundaries. She believes that self-acceptance and self-love are key to a healthy self-esteem and a meaningful life. Ana Maria combines psychotherapy with life skills teaching clients how to transition from maladaptive coping to effective coping skills. She does not believe in a “one-size fits all” approach to therapy and caters each approach to the individual’s needs and goals by working together to review your history through the attachment theory lens. Ana Maria genuinely believes that a lot of one’s struggles stems from ruptures in attachment and unresolved trauma that eventually leads to a dysregulated nervous system.
She has experience in working with complex trauma and anxiety disorders and is trained in CBT, DBT, and EMDR.
