EDUCATION

I have Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Psychology from University of Florida and a Masters Degree in Social Work (M.S.W.) from Barry University.  I am currently a doctoral candidate in Clinical Psychology at California Southern University.

BACKGROUND

I have administered countless hours of behavioral health counseling, diagnostic interviews, and case management services as a licensed psychotherapist since 1992. Working in various settings over the years, helping those with severe medical problems, mental health issues, as well as, significant social issues has been a privilege. Establishing partnerships with many community agencies to fulfill my job responsibilities helped me create a solid professional reputation.

Prior to establishing my own private practice, I have worked both for an inpatient psychiatric hospital and an outpatient healthcare center. One of my major accomplishments involved creating a program that integrated behavioral health into primary (medical) care for the entire outpatient Broward Health system. Throughout my career, I have given lectures and workshops to other professionals, clients and the general public at various South Florida hospitals, agencies and other professional organizations.

LICENSURE AND CREDENTIALS

I hold dual licensure in Florida as a Clinical Social Worker and a Marriage and Family Therapist. I am a Clinical Fellow of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.  I am qualified by the state of Florida to supervise licensed eligible interns for Clinical Social Work and Marriage and Family Therapy. I completed my doctoral practicum with a focus on couples therapy.

TRAININGS

I am trained in brief therapy methods, cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy and attachment-based treatment.  I became certified in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, (which has the best outcome study results for couples treatment) under the guidance of Dr. Jennifer Leigh of Harvard Medical School.

As a marriage therapist, I  am also certified in Discernment Counseling from the Doherty Relationship Institute to treat “mixed agenda” couples (one or both may be considering divorce). As a member of the organization of  Marriage Friendly Therapists, my philosophy is to keep families together if at all possible.

SUPERVISION FOR LICENSURE

I am qualified to supervise those who are at a post-masters level looking to become licensed as either clinical social workers or marriage and family therapists in the state of Florida.

MEDIA CONSULTING

As a go-to source for relationship advice, I have been an expert contributor for several national print and web-based media outlets. Expert contributions have been featured on Huffington Post, P&GEveryday.com, Prevention.com, ReadersDigest.com, Bustle.com, MarthaStewartWeddings.com, Glamour.com, YahooHealth.com, and many others.  I am an often cited resource on relationship topics for articles in the local Boca Observer magazine.
