I am a bilingual (English & Spanish) mental health advocate and psychotherapist in Miami, Florida. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida and Gottman Trained (Level 3) Couples Therapist. I earned my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Florida International University. I continued to earn my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling with a certificate in Marriage, Couples, and Family Therapy from the University of Central Florida. My specialties include relationships, breakups, separations, and divorce. I am passionate about helping people improve their relationships with themselves and others. I firmly believe we are only as healthy as our relationships.
I help individuals who are coping with the following:
Creating and maintaining friendships
Separation and divorce
My purpose is to help you live the life you desire
I am very intentional and transparent about the way I conduct therapy sessions. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease. My office is a haven where you can be yourself without fear of judgment. The time we spend together is YOUR time, and we will move at your pace. I always welcome your feedback and strive for this to be a collaborative relationship.
Our time is not truly over once the session is complete. I will ask you to complete assignments in between most sessions. I fervently believe that what happens in between sessions is more important than what happens during sessions. The traditional one hour a week talk therapy is not enough if you want to create profound and long-lasting change.
It will be my pleasure to walk beside you on your journey.
It is an evidenced-based method with over 40 years of research proving effectiveness with committed couples. You will learn validated skills that will dramatically improve intimacy, friendship, and conflict management in your relationship. The Gottman Method is not “traditional” couples therapy. It involves a detailed assessment process to ensure that all parties have a clear understanding of the problem, goals, and strategies.
Session 1: I meet with you and your partner as a couple. I will provide you more information on the Gottman Method and what to expect throughout our time together. We will make sure that we are a good fit for each other. I will ask you to provide me with your “Love Story” going back to when you first met. You will share your concerns and goals for therapy. You will be provided with instructions to complete an online assessment.
Session 2: I will meet with each of you individually to understand each of you as a person. I want to hear each partner’s perspective on the relationship and develop a clearer understanding of your hopes for the relationship.
Session 3: We will meet as a couple to discuss my findings and recommendations based on the assessments conducted in person and online. Collaboratively we will develop a strategic plan that will include your strengths and weaknesses and goals for therapy.
