Bio

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Board-Certified Counselor, and Approved Clinical Supervisor. As a therapist and supervisor, I find joy in connecting with my clients, teaching and supervising practitioners, and building strong partnerships with my colleagues and community at RIT. I completed my doctorate in Counseling and Counselor Education from Syracuse University. 

I love the energy, passion, and curiosity college students have. In our sessions together, students can expect patience, creativity, and humor because I believe it creates the foundation for strong relationships, and to me, having a strong relationship is essential to our work.

Each session we will work to understand your experiences, establish goals that are important to you, and provide you with the tools and techniques to be effective far beyond our time together! In addition, I facilitate therapy groups and teach professional development grounded in Applied Improvisation, a methodology that strengthens resiliency, compassion, collaboration, and leadership skills.

Many things help me maintain my energy and drive as a therapist and supervisor. I enjoy playing the piano, guitar, and drums, reading, playing soccer, and spending time with my family. I also enjoy listening to podcasts and streaming a good show, so let me know if you have any recommendations!

I identify as a cis-gender, first-generation American male. My family is from Cuba and Colombia. Please don't hesitate to reach if you have any questions or are interested in working together.
