Credentials: License

Institution: Florida Board of Clinical Social Workers

Institution: Florida International University

Graduated: 1996

In practice since: 1996

I am a licensed clinical social worker / psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience helping individuals, couples and families overcome real-life challenges. I've worked in diverse clinical settings including assisted living and skilled nursing / rehabilitation, community mental health, addictions, psychiatric care and, more recent, in private practice. It is through these experiences that I've developed a strong appreciation of the uniqueness of each person's life story, as well as the belief that given the right support and conditions people can overcome most challenges and even thrive. Recognizing that no two clients are alike, my treatment approach is evidence-based and individually tailored to best meet client needs. My areas of specialization include anxiety disorders and depression, addictions, relationships, and trauma. I work with teens, adults and seniors with a caring, solution-focused approach.

I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers {NASW}, and Anxiety and Depression Association of America {ADAA}.

What does the expression "out with the old, in with the new" mean? Does it mean that we discard the past and plan for a new tomorrow? Do we ignore all that has come before in favor of that which is yet to come? In pondering these questions, I can identify with my own experiences that have shaped the person I was and have come to be. Are they one and the same? One might argue, that I am still the same..
