Why I became a therapist

I believe therapy is about creating a safe and authentic relationship where clients can learn to embrace their authentic self.  We find that empowerment is a product of this process and leads to healthier relationships, increased self-worth, and an improved sense of well-being. 

Background & Experience

I have years of experience helping individuals manage addiction, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, and relationship and family conflict.  Prior to moving to Philadelphia and working at my current position at a male inpatient rehab, I was employed at a group private practice in my hometown, Miami, FL, where I was involved with various community outreach programs.  Through a variety of settings, I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families.  

Education

  • Masters in Counseling, Dual Specialization in Mental Health and Marriage and Family, Barry University, Miami FL 

  • Bachelors in Biopsychology, Philadelphia University, Philadelphia PA 

  • Currently under supervision for LPC license (PA)

Treatment Style

Using a strength based and client-centered frame work, I utilize a variety of therapeutic styles including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and trauma specific treatment.  I understand the importance of the relationships between one’s mind, body, and soul, and use this holistic approach to help each client achieve their goals.
