About me

Hello! I am an LCSW located in South Florida. I have been counseling adults, children and families since 2005. I am trained in Functional Family Therapy and Multi-systemic Therapy. I think the most important part of therapy is getting to know you or you and your family in therapy. I understand that you are not the situation and I can help you understand why you are experiencing the feelings and/or problems you are having. I have worked in many environments. They include In-Home Therapy with families and children ages 3 to 18, including Diversion programs, Foster Care, hospitals, Renal Dialysis, Hospice, Addiction and HIV. I look forward to meeting you and helping you along your journey.
