My Approach to Helping
I am a bilingual therapist that is here to assist you with the challenges you may be facing in your life.
With over fifteen years of experience working in the mental health and substance abuse field, I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient facilities as well as a detox unit. In addition, I have conducted individual, couples, family and group therapy sessions. I have worked with teenagers, adults and older adults throughout my career as a therapist. I am so grateful to have been trained in different interventions and methods to help you through your obstacles.
I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (one of a handful in South Florida) and I am trained in the Carnes task oriented model of dealing from sex addiction. A happy, healthy, and contented sex life, unburdened by shame and guilt, is what I work towards with my clients. In addition, I have been trained for EMDR, which has been proven to be effective in treating trauma and PTSD. It may also help treat other mental health conditions like anxiety, depression and panic disorders.
I have learned about patience, respecting autonomy, and the power of teamwork from my clients. If you are struggling with self esteem issues, trauma, sex addiction or substance addiction I am here to help you. Because I believe there are better days ahead.
