I am a bilingual (English-Spanish) therapist with nearly a decade of experience providing individual, couple, group, and family therapy services throughout South Florida. I hold a bachelor’s degree in psychology, a master’s degree and state license in mental health counseling, and a Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy.
My clinical experience includes delivering in-home therapy services to at-risk youth aging out of the foster care system, providing family therapy services in a South Florida community clinic, offering a range of support services to LGBTQ young people and their families, delivering education and crisis response services to immigrant families, working in a private practice setting with a diverse range of clients, and serving as the lead therapist and Clinical Director for a substance abuse treatment facility.
In addition to my work with Evergreen Therapy, I am an adjunct professor for Nova Southeastern University in the Department of Family Therapy. I also own and operate The SAILS Institute, a non-profit organization that provides sliding-scale therapy services and life skills education to at-risk LGBTQ young people in South Florida.
My education and professional experiences have fostered an enduring passion for human cognition, behavior, and relationships that fuels my work. I am committed to collaborating with my clients in their pursuit of change—however they define it.
