Helping Adults Achieve Wellness Through Mental Health
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in the states of New York and Florida, with experience supporting a variety of clients in their work to improve their mental health. As a psychotherapist, I believe that mental health and behavior are intrinsically tied to past experiences. Therefore, I work with clients to support them as they achieve greater self-awareness, discover the roots of their issues and build the resources they need to reach wellness.
I have been working in the mental health field for over 10 years. During this time, I have gained significant experience helping people deal with anxiety, depression, domestic violence, relationship problems, identity issues and substance use (specialized in the harm reduction approach).
Through my education and experience, I have come to understand the importance of culture in the therapeutic process. I identify as a bicultural clinical social worker, specializing in the Latinx community. I am a native Spanish speaker and have native fluency in English.
I received a master’s in social work from the Silverman School of Social Work and am continuing my specialization at the Center for Modern Psychoanalysis studies. In addition to my formal education, I have extensive hands-on experience with LGBTQ clients, immigrants and counseling people living with HIV/AIDS.
