Solution oriented

The road to self-empowerment starts with a first step. Change can be scary or difficult, but the good news is that once the decision is made, it always leads to a door open toward success. Welcome to my page; my goal is to support you to feel good about who you are. I am born in Panamá, a bilingual Florida Licensed Mental Health Counselor with TF-CBT training. Aditionally, I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), certified also as Integrative Mental Health Professional (CIMHP) and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level 2 (CCTP-II). I am available via Telehealth for clients in Florida. I have 14 years of Master-level clinical experience with grief counseling, as well as life/career coaching, anxiety/stress/PTSD, school/college issues, women's issues, phase of life issues, relationship issues, self-esteem/assertiveness, peer relationships and acculturation issues. You are stronger than you think; you have within yourself the tools to be able to surpass any emotional obstacles that you might face. My goal is to help you discover and use your strengths and successfully reach your goals. El camino hacia la autorrealización y aceptación comienza con un primer paso. El cambio positivo es una puerta que siempre se abre hacia el éxito. ¡Bienvenido, Bienvenida a mi página! Soy una terapista profesional bilingüe (nacida en Panamá), registrada como LMHC en Florida (Consejería Psicológica con Licencia Clínica de Salud Mental) y con Certificación Nacional de Consejería. También tengo sub-especializaciones en Trauma Complejo y Terapista Profesional Especializada en Salud Mental Integral; poseo licencia como psicóloga general en Panamá.

Utilizo Terapia Breve Centrada en Soluciones, Cognitiva-Conductual y de Aceptación/Compromiso, así como también terapia de Arte y terapia integral (basado en aceptar a la persona como un "todo"). Usted tiene más poder para el cambio positivo de lo que se imagina; tiene adentro de sí mismo las herramientas que le permiten sobrepasar cualquier obstáculo emocional hacia el triunfo. Mi meta es ayudarle a descubrir y usar sus herramientas internas para poder seguir adelante y lograr sus metas.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our intake session, I will go over some information to know you better, including verifying what do you expect from therapy and what goals you would like to work on. You are empower in all the sessions; my job is to support and help you fine tune coping skills you already have within yourself.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I work with my clients and meet them where they are. I use Art Therapy, CBT, DBT, Mindfulness/Progressive Relaxation tools, as well as Brief Therapy Solution-Focused, Person-Centered and Gestalt (in grief therapy). I also use and integrative body-mind-cultural approach in my sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I worked for many years with adults and senior adults from different cultures for a hospital specializing in terminal illnesses (especially cancer). One of my strengths is to work not only with patients but also with caregivers providing support during times of grief, as well as during treatment/post-treatment. I have also a lot of experience as a mentor and therapist in college settings, working with anxiety/stress management, assertiveness, trauma, time management issues and acculturation adjustment.
