Highly energetic and motivated Licensed Mental Health Counselor in South Florida that thrives to help others learn to effectively manage anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, grief and anger.

Hi i! My name is Glenda mostly known as “Gigi”.
I have over 15 years of experience working in mental health with diverse populations and demographics ranging from community mental health to private practice. I have a desire to innovate how mental health is perceived and facilitate treatment. My approach emphasizes the mutual development of goals for therapy and the provision of ongoing evaluation of the therapeutic process. I seek to create an integrative, dynamic, and holistic approach to treating mental health through evidence-based practice and techniques.

FACTS: 1 in 5 U.S. adults and 1 in 6, aged 6-17, experience mental health each year (NAMI 2020)

You are not alone. Help is available!

Don't let depression or anxiety get in the way of becoming something more. Let me help you overcome the obstacles getting the way of living your best life. My training includes Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Person-Centered Therapy, Play Therapy, and Crisis Intervention.
