I have extensive experience assisting clients with anxiety, depression, internal conflict, mood disorders, bipolar disorder, trauma, marital conflict, and self-harm. My experience includes a variety of settings including hospital settings, clinical settings and private practice settings. Each professional setting provided me with exceptional insight and understanding. I utilize evidence-based practices and intervention modalities that have merit.
Prior to the field of psychotherapy, I was a public school teacher, administrator, and university professor. I earned my Doctorate in Education/Ed.D. from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, FL. My passion and commitment, coupled with a deep sense of genuine care, allows me to develop a strong therapeutic alliance with each client. Moreover, I have overcome personal obstacles and challenges in life that allow me to relate not only theoretically, but experientially. Psychotherapy is akin to sorting through the pieces of a large puzzle. By helping clients connect present-day issues with past events, we are able to make sense of our behavior and begin to affect change, as we connect the puzzle pieces.
I enjoy facilitating groups to address Anger Management and Self-Harm. Please contact me if you are interested in participating in one of the groups identified.
