Hello and Hola,
I am a bilingual and bicultural psychotherapist licensed in Ga as a social worker with degrees from New York and California, and Argentina. I know South America's culture and some European countries like Spain, France, and Poland. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, stress, body image problems, compulsive eating, binge eating disorder, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, LGBTQIA challenges, and emotional abuse.
We all have a body and a mind. Sometimes we hate our bodies, and our minds give us grief. We all need to learn to live in our bodies whether we like our looks or not. For some who are spiritual, the struggle breaks havoc in their spiritual lives as well. I will be honored to be a part of your journey to feel whole again. I believe in respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in labeling people. My approach combines a psychodynamic understanding of your situation, teaching mindfulness, and showing you a cognitive-behavioral approach to the problem at hand. All of this with a humanistic approach. The parents, the adults, the young adults I have worked and work with deserve respect as an important element to feel whole. I also believe no one knows you better than yourself, and that is why you need to be in the driver's seat of your own treatment. You and I will tailor our dialogs and the treatment plan according to your mental time to meet your unique and specific needs.
I look forward to working with you!

I can’t even put into words how amazing Iréné is! I started therapy seeking help with one specific issue but, as time went on, new problems were popping up left and right and she was always there with help, guidance, and support no matter what road block life threw at me. She is so easy to talk too and so compassionate. Truly changed my life for the better! Thank you, Iréné!
