Spanish-Speaking & Latino Therapists
Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone knows of an Argentinian
psychotherapist or counselor in the bay area; preferrably in the east
bay area. I would appreciate any hints.
I don't know of any Argentinian psychotherapists offhand.
You may want to call Giselle Fernandes (sorry don't have
phone # but she is a JFK professor and has private practice
as well). She is Brasilian, may know some local Argentinian
therapists. good luck!
Susana and Ricardo Winkel are both psychologists originally from Argentina
(though they have been in the Bay Area for many years). Their offices are in
Susana Winkel: 510-559-8301
Ricardo Winkel: 510-559-9354

My son was adopted as a baby from Latin America and is now entering
young adulthood. He is struggling with identity issues and anger.
Can anyone please recommend a 1st rate male therapist of color
(preferably black, Latino, South Asian, or mixed race)? We are
hoping for someone who will take HMO insurance.
Our son who is African American and adopted has been going to Frank
Davis for 3 years now. It has been a life changing event for our son
and keeps us the parents on an even keel. He is extremely dedicated
to supporting young boys into men and a cool guy too. Excellent
communication with the families. Cannot recommend him too highly.

I'm presuming that he is a teen which is when a lot of this comes
up. There is some value in more psychodynamic therapy but it also has
limitations with teens since a lot of their view is influenced by
peers. Face-to-face therapy can only accomplish so much. A good
bilingual therapist who grew up in Mexico is Sam Tabachnik at
510-845-3525 but he is not an adoption specialist. For an
adoption/attachment specialist talk to Susan Love 684-0045 or Virginia
Keeler-Wolf 339-9363. For having your son in a group of his peers that
he identifies with and struggling with these same issues contact PACT
An Adoption Alliance or Coyote Coast. Best wishes. This is very
challenging. Feel free to contact me.
I was given this reference:
If the family is willing to take the BART into downtown San
Francisco, Dr. Luis Perez would be a good fit. He is excellent.
Forrest Hamer in Oakland is a very highly regarded therapist. He's
African American. Not sure if he works with adults only, or not. My
friend who sees him is an adult.
I'm looking for a talented Chicano/Latino or mixed-race (any
races) therapist/psychiatrist who specializes in cultural
identity issues for adults. Preferably in San Francisco, and
who takes Blue Cross/Blue Shield insurance. Your help is much
Francisco Gonzalez is really talented- I've taken classes that he has taught
and was very impressed with his thinking. He is also very warm and accessible.
I believe he practices in San Francisco, as well as at La Clinica de la Raza.
I am not sure if he takes Blue Cross.
My friend is trying to locate a native spanish speaking couples therapist. The
therapist should be sensitive to recent immigrant issues as well as inter-cultural
relationship issues. Session should be conducted in spanish.
I recommend Samuel Tabachnik. He is a wonderful couples
therapist from Mexico and I believe he will hold sessions in
Spanish (the message on his machine is in Spanish and English).
He's in Berkeley near Ashby and Shattuck. His number is 845-3525.
Try Yvette Flores-Ortiz, Ph.D. (sorry, I don't have her number) or Samuel Tabachnik,
Ph.D. (510) 845-3525. Best of luck,
Seeking a recommendation for a Latino or Latina couples
therapist, or someone who is sensitive to the cultural issues in
our relationship (Latin male, Jewish American female). The
archives mention a therapist in SF, but we're looking for someone
in the East Bay, preferably Oakland or Berkeley.
We had difficulties after we had our baby and had a
lot of success after getting therapy with Denise Forte, she's
in Berkeley and is great. I highly recommend her. Her number is
510-286-7615. I can recommend her for a bicultural couple,
since she herself is an American married to a Latino.
