These unwelcome guests may linger, but together we'll build defenses, find coping mechanisms, and reclaim the joy that belongs to you. Family dynamics? I've untangled knotty relationships, navigated generational divides, and seen families rediscover the glue that binds them. ADHD? Oh, those whirlwind minds!

There are so many messages that you’ve probably lived with growing up that don’t work for you anymore. Messages that make it hard to be present, to get things done, or make you feel like you're in "survival mode". Maybe you’re expected to move on from some hard times – or hard losses. Or maybe you’ve always had to be the “Perfect One”, the “Black Sheep” or the “Silent One” in your family. But there’s so much more to you than your struggles or the labels that have been placed on you. You don't have to live life feeling overwhelmed with negative thoughts, numbness, or expectations every day. You deserve to live authentically. You should speak to a counselor who recognizes that there is tremendous beauty to the person you are already. Your blood is of rich ancestry, heritage, triumphs and identity. I already know you have all the tools you need to live more mindfully. Every now and then we may all just need the support to see it. Let's talk!

Hi. I'm Gloria, LMHC in the FL State. Are you going through depression, anxiety, long-lasting effects of trauma, adjustment to new cultures, or dealing with children and adolescents with behavioral problems? Are you part of a minority facing bigotry and adaptation to the main culture; or having relational problems preventing you from having the good life you deserve? In a few words, are you a human being who is struggling to be the best that you can be? If your answer is yes to one of these questions then, you are the client I want to serve. Together we can find the tools you need to grow and enhance your strengths; yes your strengths, those that you have even if you can't recognize them. I’ll work within an array of therapeutic approaches, always in the here and now, to familiarize yourself with your mind and its work because I’m convinced that, “ Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom." Depression, anxiety, losses, adjustments, trauma these all are inexhaustible sources of pain. We all, as humans, share them so, "Maybe that's the point of humanitarianism, it's in making the effort, it's in sending the message that you actually care." I care. Feel free to contact me.
