When I started my Masters in counseling psychology in 2009, I was blessed at that same time to work in a juvenile detention center for at-risk females in a residential program.
I provided them with group counseling, Bible studies, spiritual disciplines and individual counseling.
Throughout the next 10 years to the present day, I worked with preschool children, teachers and parents. This was performed in a preschool setting using play therapy, affective therapy, behavioral therapy, cognitive integrated therapy, and filial therapy.
Further to this, I worked with agencies providing in-home counseling to children and families.
I participated in family court related hearings and served as a liaison for specific services and resources to other professionals and agencies.
I have provided mental health services to in their native Spanish language, to the Latin and Hispanic communities in Palm Beach County for children and their families.
I have served in treatment centers for substance/chemical addiction and dual diagnosis, working with men and women of all ages to fight the real struggle of addiction.
I have had the amazing blessing to practice in some of these settings as a Christian counselor with faith based practices, Christian counseling, and Biblical principles to men and women who acknowledge the unconditional love of Jesus Christ.
You can see from my potted history here, that I've covered lots of bases. I believe this makes me stronger psychotherapist, and indeed the best psychotherapist I can be. Problems often overlap and flow out and affect other ares of life. I have you covered.
Last but certainly not least, I now work in private practice offering counseling to individuals, couples and families in a safe, compassionate and caring environment.
My experience, unique skill set, personality and love for people have been an incredible and fulfilling journey. I have been blessed to serve in my community for the past 10 years and going strong!
