My Approach to Helping
I earned my bachelor’s degree from Florida International University in Miami, Florida. I earned my master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I am licensed in the state of Florida.
I have over 10 years of experience providing therapy in Outpatient, Inpatient, and Intensive Outpatient settings with clients seeking help for various presenting issues. I work with various psychotherapy modalities for the overall wellness of my clients including but not limited to depression, anxiety, social anxiety, trauma, emotional wellbeing, self-esteem issues, life changes, relationship issues, interpersonal skills, bipolar disorder, and substance abuse disorder.
I have a varied and eclectic counseling approach in order to provide my clients with the best care to fit their mental health needs. I have vast experience in the Client-Centered Approach, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Techniques, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy among others. I strongly believe that trust and a positive therapeutic relationship need to be established in order for clients to move forward. My goal is to empower each of my clients to make the changes they wish to make while being supportive and nonjudgmental.
I am fluent in English and Spanish, and able to provide services in both languages. I currently provide services via telehealth.
