As a clinician, I like to blend a lighthearted approach with empathy, caring, respect, depth and patience.
While it is true that life is full of personal, professional, and relationship challenges that can leave us feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about ourselves or our choices; it is also certain that all human beings want to be loved and cared for, to feel validated and valued as well as live passionate and fulfilling lives. But it all starts with slowing down enough and getting curious about what’s working and what’s not.
When you get curious about how you show up in the world – in your work, your relationships, the way you treat yourself – that’s how change begins.
I am a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in the state of Florida. I have been a therapist for 3 years and absolutely love what I do. I specialize in relationship counseling as well as in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and other emotional difficulties. I have worked with adults and children of all ages from a wide variety of cultures and backgrounds.
I am also bilingual and provide therapy fluently in Spanish and English. In my clinical work, I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Gottman method, and mindfulness and meditation.
Prior to starting to work in private practice, my career as a therapist included working in a community based mental health agency, as well as at a university counseling center.
When I am not working as a therapist, I enjoy writing about human development, psychology, personal growth and self-help. I am a staff writer for a health magazine and contribute to articles on a monthly basis.
I am a professional member of the American Counseling Association and a professional member of the Association for Contextual and Behavioral Sciences. In addition to my registered intern license, I hold several certifications. I continue to educate myself by attending national and local conferences, keeping up with current therapy research, and seeking supervision.
