Professional statement

Carmen is a psychotherapist practicing in New York City. She has a Master's degree in clinical social work from New York University. She works with individuals on issues of anxiety and depression, and uses an insight-oriented approach to help uncover and explore contributing root causes including transitions, identity, trauma, and grief and loss.

Carmen has a warm, open, and interactive manner, and practices with culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed, and strengths-based lenses.

Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, Carmen had a 20-year career working for global advertising agencies, and as a consultant. She is also a parent, and has experienced working in the corporate world while raising young children, as well as being a stay-at-home mom.

Due to Covid-19, Carmen is currently only conducting video sessions.


Message to clients

Hello. Welcome.

Perhaps you are going through a major transition, want to make a change, or have a nagging feeling you should take a closer look at neglected aspects of yourself. Maybe you just want to do and feel better.

You may feel ambivalent or unhappy about your career, studies, or relationships. You may need a place to process grief, loss, past traumas, or injustices. Perhaps you are adjusting to a new life stage or evolving identity. Whatever your sources of anxiety, anger, or sadness we can work together to help you gain the skills and self-knowledge to move forward in your life.

If you would like to have a phone consultation, send me a message so we can set up a time. I look forward to hearing from you.
