About me

Do you feel overwhelmed in trying to deal with a close personal relationship? Are you feeling blocked or frustrated in expressing your feelings to your partner? Have you lost interest or passion in your relationship? Is honest communication lacking? Are the challenges of parenting too much to handle? Life situations can be stressful and can lead us to question our judgment and fill us with self-doubt. This, in turn, can wear away at the fiber of intimate relationships. You try to address the issue, sometimes with the support of family and friends, but this often does not lead to effective solutions. You may become depressed, frustrated, angry or anxious, or have difficulty managing your daily responsibilities.
I am a Florida licensed Psychologist with over 30 years experience working in private practice and a variety of public settings, including clinics, hospitals, universities and correctional facilities. I served as expert witness in forensic cases involving trauma, head injury and custody. I am a bi-lingual (Spanish/English) therapist working with individuals, families and couples from different backgrounds.
I develop a solution-focused dialogue to identify the problems that bring you in and re-frame them into realistic, workable goals. My aim is for you to leave each session feeling that you have learned a new way to approach your specific situation with strategies to try until our next appointment. My objective is to make every session productive. I combine cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive therapeutic approaches in therapy.
My goal is to help the couple improve communication and build resilience in dealing with life’s stresses. I focus on life skills coaching, parent guidance, problem solving, cognitive restructuring, and remediation using behavioral and practical strategies.

Dr. Shapiro's approach is very professional and her experience is evident in how she handles sessions. She's punctual, keep the session on task and works with you to set up the next one as she knows it is difficult to find available times.

A therapist that really digs deep and asks questions. Listens to you and helps you understand yourself better. I myself am not one to talk or open up but she knew what to ask and when to ask to pry things out of me so she could help me. 10/10 would definitely recommend
