Hi, and thank you for your interest in me as a therapist. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the state of Florida and Texas. I have over 15 years of experience working in the field of mental health.
I graduated with a Master's in Social Work, from Barry University in Miami Shores, Florida. I have worked in various settings including homeless shelters, crisis units, and outpatient treatment centers. My counseling approach is person-centered, and the therapeutic modalities that I use are Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing (MI).
I specialize in treating men’s issues such as difficulty expressing intimacy and affection. Those struggling with anger, irritability, and performance anxiety. Offering a space where men can openly express and connect to what matters to them. Men who struggle in their lives to find happiness, contentment, and a balance in their personal and professional relationships.
Through therapy, it will allow you to safely and privately open up and discuss issues and concerns, as well as possible symptoms, which may have been previously ignored. Together, we can develop better coping mechanisms to deal with the issues that you are struggling to overcome.
I am LGBTQ, BDSM, and Kink friendly, and knowledgeable.
Looking forward to connecting with you and beginning our work together!
