MARRIAGE THERAPIST & COUPLES COUNSELOR
Phone: (561) 544-8011
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.
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.
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. I am also a supervisor-in-training for practitioners seeking certification in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT).
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.
