Registered Psychotherapist, Lawyer (Arg) M.Div (USA) Reg. Psychotherapist (CA) Coach (Ca)
From my earliest years, a deep-seated commitment to justice took root in me, sparked by the passion of a Harvard-educated lawyer portrayed by Barry Newman in the television series Petrocelli. This attorney, forsaking the allure of Wall Street wealth, dedicated himself to serving the voiceless and underserved, often for a symbolic one-dollar fee. This childhood inspiration propelled me to pursue a legal career at the University of Buenos Aires to become a criminal lawyer at the age of 22. Although my professional journey led me through roles as an actor and ordained minister, culminating in my current roles as a psychotherapist and coach, I never strayed from my passion to protect the innocent and champion justice whenever needed. Over the last few decades, I have intentionally immersed myself in the realm of domestic violence and abuse, driven by a conviction that, while understanding the roots of such actions in the trauma and pain of the perpetrators, we must stand firm to halt the cycle of violence and protect the victims. Though navigating this work while victims are still ensnared within the power dynamics of abuse is delicate and perilous, it brings extraordinary fulfillment to assist someone in breaking free. In rare cases, I've had the privilege of aiding abusers in turning their lives around. Given my background as a criminal lawyer, minister, and specialized psychotherapist, it is my profound honour to support those in need, guiding them to break free from the grips of abuse and use their traumatic experiences as a catapult toward a life of fulfillment, freedom, and empowerment. The journey from victimization to liberation is undoubtedly treacherous and delicate, yet it stands as one of the most fulfilling paths one can take when breaking free from any form of abuse or violence. Please don't hesitate to reach out, knowing that I stand ready to be in your corner, offering suggestions and guidance on how to avoid further harm and, ultimately, emerge free from the shackles of abuse or violence.

Psychologist, PhD, Clinical Psychology
Whether emotional or physical, domestic abuse in a relationship traps both partners in an escalating spiral of misery. The abuser must locate the violence within him/herself; the victim must reclaim her rights, her space, her self, either within the relationship or apart from the abuser. If violence is present, the therapeutic work must be done separately for the safety of the victim/survivor.

Psychologist, PhD, LMFT, CMFSW, BCPC, CRS
Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it.
