As a dedicated Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a strong academic foundation from Florida International University in Miami, FL, I bring a wealth of experience and expertise in helping individuals facing challenges related to ADHD, anxiety, depression, family issues, and adjustment disorders. My professional journey has led me to work with diverse individuals and families, encompassing various cultural backgrounds and complex dynamics. Utilizing evidence-based therapeutic modalities such as cognitive-behavior therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, emotional focused couples therapy, and family dynamics, I am committed to providing comprehensive and effective support. I firmly believe in the inherent capacity of every individual to foster personal growth and discover meaning in their lives. My approach emphasizes the essential elements of structure, discipline, and self-compassion, serving as cornerstones for therapeutic progress. If you've reached this point, you possess the resilience and determination to move forward in your journey toward greater well-being and fulfillment. I am here to guide and support you on this path to empowerment and positive change.
