I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of Florida. I have more than 14 years experience in the medical and mental health field. I received a masters degree, bachelors degree, and aging certificate from Florida Atlantic University. I graduated with highest honors from the college of social work. I have dedicated half my life to the field of mental health, in particular, codependency and empowerment. I completed my internships and was hired by a local hospice. My specialties there were grief and loss, depression, anxiety, trauma, anger. My treatment approach is rather laid back, but is set on the foundation of having a therapeutic relationship, to include using theory's such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, Narrative Therapy, and Mindfulness. It has been an honor and privilege to assist people through some of the most difficult times of their lives. I love to watch people grow and become empowered to make their own life choices and decisions.

Betty is a kind and genuine soul. She does not push her views but blends her expertise with your needs. I highly recommend her for anyone with familial relationship issues. Especially if you think you may have codependent tendencies.
