Furthermore, Dr. Pedroche has authored several professional articles, numerous magazine articles for New Woman Magazine (distributed throughout the Caribbean and Canada), and presented at professional conferences including the International Society for the Study of Trauma and Dissociation.  Dr. Pedroche’s particular areas of interest include Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Eating Disorders, and Mood and Anxiety Disorders.

Although competent in Family Systems Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Dr. Pedroche’s primary treatment approach is Rogerian in nature indicating that therapy is client-centered and non-directive.  Like psychologist Carl Rogers, Dr. Pedroche feels that for a person to "grow", (s)he needs an environment that provides him/her with genuineness (openness and self-disclosure), acceptance (being seen with unconditional positive regard), and empathy (being listened to and understood).
