About Me

Welcome to BetterHelp! Throughout life we experience circumstances that are beyond our control and can be very difficult to cope with and adjust to. When these times arise it is very important to seek help, that is what I am here for. I've been practicing Social Work in Florida for over 10 years in a variety of settings. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University with my Masters in Social Work and then continued on to become a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). I have worked extensively with clients in hospice, the aging and dying, chronic illness, crisis intervention, anxiety, and depression. I have also worked within the daycare setting and provided play therapy to children and provided psycho-education to parents. I have worked with families, individuals, and children throughout my career.

It takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for help and I believe that it is important for each person I see to be met with understanding, respect, and compassion. I use several approaches in my sessions including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy. There is no magic program that works for every individual so we will work together to ensure that the approach used is what works best for you.

I look forward to working with you!

Dina is wonderful. She listens, cares and remembers. She’s helped me deal with anxiety tremendously and I’m so glad we were connected with each other.

Dina is a great listener and very supportive. She provides honest feedback as well as resources and assignments so I can actively work on my thought processes and goals. She is kind and keeps in touch with me in between meetings.
