I have worked as a therapist for over 8 years, serving in both private practice and community mental health settings. I graduated with my masters degree in social work from Florida International University in 2016 and I am fully bilingual in English and Spanish. Throughout my career, I have worked with many diverse populations, including individuals who have been incarcerated, struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, personality disorders , substance use disorders and an array of phase of life problems.

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

As a therapist, I am passionate about empowering individuals, helping individuals heal and transform by providing a safe, supportive and non-judgmental space for them to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I believe that everyone has the capacity for personal growth and transformation, and my experience as a therapist has taught me the importance of collaboration in the therapeutic process to help uncover inner resources and strengths to overcome challenges and achieve goals.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I specialize in using a range of evidence-based modalities including cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based approaches, and psychodynamic approaches.

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

Empathy: As a therapist I emphasize being able to understand and feel the emotions of the patient, and to be able to communicate that understanding in a way that makes the patient feel heard and supported. Non-judgmental Attitude: As a therapist I have learned the importance of endorsing a non-judgmental attitude and help patients feel safe and comfortable sharing their thoughts and feelings. Flexibility: As a therapist one my biggest strengths is also learning to be flexible and adaptable. Every patient is different, and what works for one patient may not work for another and overall I try to adjust my approach and techniques to meet the unique needs of each individual patient.
