Ana has trained in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and executive functioning coaching and has worked with adolescents as well as adults to help them understand their strengths and challenges, and develop helpful strategies. She is interested in how the combination of self-knowledge and action can lead to meaningful change to help achieve goals and enjoy life.

For more than twenty-five years, she has been in private practice providing psychological services to children, adolescents, adults and families.
Ana was born in Uruguay and came to the United States as a child. Her bicultural and bilingual experience has given her a perspective on adjustment to change and bridging cultural differences, especially in the realm of child development and helping parents to communicate with and support their children.
As your psychologist, Ana will strive to determine your areas of strength as well as areas of challenge, and engage you in understanding yourself or your child. In this way, helpful steps can be taken toward addressing difficulties as well as enhancing a positive sense of self.
