Greetings! I have been a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Florida for six years and providing psychological services for more than 15. While earning my doctorate at Nova Southeastern University, I began and fell in love with couples and marriage counseling. I have assisted couples with identifying relationship concerns, improving communication, pre-marital therapy, and post-divorce communication.
My approach to treatment is eclectic, holistic, and individualized. Having been trained in Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Dialect Behavioral Therapy, I can offer guidance from multiple theoretical frameworks. Although it can be initially uncomfortable to speak with a stranger about significant personal concerns, my goal is to provide an environment that is friendly, judgment-free, open-minded, empathetic, and hope it feels like you are talking to a friend. As a couples therapist, I believe it is essential that all parties feel heard and validated. I utilize John Gotman's approach to building communication and understanding individual perspectives within the relationship. I believe that together we can work towards meeting your goals and improving the way you feel.
