My name is Virgen Garcia. I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Florida with 7 years of experience as a therapist. I graduated with my Masters in Social Work from Barry University in Miami, Florida. I speak both English and Spanish. I use different approaches such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, client-centered, and motivational interviewing. I have experience working with individuals struggling with negative self-talk, low self-esteem, substance use, depression, anxiety, and history of trauma.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in meeting the client where they are and using reflective questions to guide sessions and change. I believe in treating everyone with respect and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes great courage to seek help to start your process for change, self-discovery, and healing. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support you.
I look forward to working with you.
Additional areas of focus: Family conflicts, Grief, Bipolar disorder, Depression, Coping with life changes, ADHD

Dr. Garcia has been extremely helpful in managing my anxiety and my low self esteem. She is very interactive and provides me with actual tools, not just running the motions with me and asking me how I feel. The work I've done with her in a short amount of time is work that's already having a positive outcome in my life. I'm very grateful.
