Hey there! I am a licensed therapist working in private practice in Miami, FL. I see individuals, couples and families.
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Coral Gables, FL
When working with my clients, I tend to gravitate towards CBT techniques to work on behavioral and cognitive changes. Often times, clients can benefit from changing maladaptive thought patterns and building new concrete behavioral skills.
I mostly used a person-centered approach when working with clients. This mean that I like to meet my clients where they are and help support them as they work through their self-discovery and self-actualization. I believe that all people have the ability to grow and change, and I hope to provide a safe, judgement-free and nurturing environment to allow this to happen.
Although my main treatment approaches are CBT and Person-Centered, I like to bring other modalities into the room depending on the presenting problem and the personality of the client. I might integrate Dialectical Behavioral, Narrative, Solution-Focused or Motivational Interviewing techniques when appropriate.
I have experience delivering Functional Family Therapy (FFT) to under-served families in Miami Beach. I am FFT-certified and have also participated in a training for Solution-Focused Brief Therapy for LGBTQ youth and their families
I have been working with gay and bisexual men and transfolk for the past year, providing substance abuse and trauma treatment. Many of of my clients are living with HIV, so I have experience with that population as well. I completed my graduate practicum at Survivor's Pathway, providing services to survivors of domestic abuse and transgender Latinx.
I have provided couples counseling to many clients during my years of practice, in agency, community mental health and telehealth settings.
