My Approach to Helping
I am a licensed mental health counselor graduated from the University of Miami and St. Thomas Universtiy with over 12 years experience in working with children, adolescents, families, and couples on various issues such as divorce, loss of a loved one, depression, self esteem, women's issues, anxiety, relationship issues, behavioral problems, and parenting skills training. Life has many challenges and often people feel at a loss and helpless as to how to handle new or ongoing obstacles that seem to have no solution. My experience in the field will help you gain the necessary tools to live a mentally healthy life.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
The ability to express yourself in a safe and non judgmental environment is incredibly helpful in sorting out issues and increasing awareness of behavior and thought patterns individuals engage in that contribute to the exacerbation of unhealthy choices or decisions that impact the life style of the individual. Psychotherapy allows the individual to talk out challenging issues and explore alternatives via identifying/learning strategies that will increase the client's ability to live a more stable, optimistic, lifestyle.
My Role as a Therapist
My role as a therapist is to assist each client in increasing their awareness regarding current/past issues that are interfering with their healthy functioning at this time. My role as a therapist is to address the client's needs by assisting the client identify he/she's needs as well as increase awareness of behavior/thought patterns which affect client's current functioning and increase the client's ability to develop healthy coping skills to overcome or manage issues in a manner where the client feels fulfilled in their life and is no longer struggling with themselves.
