About me

I earned my Master's degree in social work from Florida International University in 1998. I became licensed in 2000 from Florida. I worked with children in the school system in Miami-Dade county for several years. Providing individual, group and family therapy.

I worked with severally mentally ill clients dealing with people who have issues with Bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and major depression.

Since 2007 I worked with active duty military. I focused on marital issues, individual therapy for people struggling with anxiety, depression, worries, and PTSD. I also worked with soldiers who had issues with domestic violence. I have skill sets with dealing with people who come from dysfunctional family systems and they carry this type of trauma into their adult life and families. I also have a skill set of working with addictions and eating disorders. I have also provided marital counseling and have been trained in Gottman Marriage Counseling.

I have experience using multiple treatment approaches to therapy including CBT, DBT, ACT, EMDR, and motivational interviewing skills. I have a strength in helping clients to make changes in their life that they would like to make.
