My Approach to Helping
I believe that the most effective approach to psychotherapy includes: respect for the individual, a caring approach, and professionalism. Every person is different and unique. As such, every client deserves an assessment and treatment that is customized to the needs and reality of each person. Being able to truly listen, to understand each client\'s situation and perspective is critical. This facilitates connecting, so important! Of course, having the proper psychotherapy techniques is also very important. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT has been proven by research to be the most effective approach. Also, other techniques in which I\'m certified are EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing - used effectively to treat traumas and PTSD, among others) and Clinical Hypnosis.
My background includes having lived in different countries, different parts of the USA, being fully bilingual (English & Spanish), and having unique background of education and experiences that I believe help me connect better and be most effective. My experience includes having worked with the University of Miami@Jackson Memorial Hospital for several years and currently having two private practice offices (Miami & Boca Raton). I am here to help you work through any of your challenges and to help you achieve your full potential.
