About My Clients
I am compassionate, caring and an active listener. I believe that our society depends on how we treat ourselves and others and believe one's mental health process is the foundation for harmony, peace and spiritual process. It can feel so frustrating when you seek out help and it seems so challenging. I foster the approach of being compassionate and a person that's easy to speak to. I encourage my client's to ask questions and I believe that positive change can happen no matter what.
My Background and Approach
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Florida. I graduated from Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Fl in 2007 and since then have been working in the counseling field. I have over 14 years experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including community based treatment, addiction treatment that include co-occurring disorders and have years of experience working in the trauma setting to support client's experiencing trauma. I have had experience working with a broad range and severity of clinical issues. I have experience utilizing many approaches of therapies; however, these are the therapy modalities I tend to use in treatment: CBT, Solution Focus Modalities, Narrative and Structural therapy, integrative couples therapy and EMDR.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
My conviction to the spiritual process and my belief that there is a greater purpose then the self has encouraged me to continue to provider fellowship, support and volunteering where it's best suited within the community. I know that having mental health issues and life's challenges can be difficult. There is still so much stigma around having mental health issues, the process for getting help can be overwhelming, and it can feel so frustrating when you seek out help and it seems so challenging. I foster the approach of being compassionate and a person that's easy to speak to help support the joining trust that I develop with my client's.
