About

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) with a Ph.D. in Linguistics. I also have certifications in Trauma treatment and in Mindfulness for treating stress/anxiety (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, MBSR) and for treating children and teens. I have experience in the treatment of trauma, PTSD, anxiety, panic attacks, depression, domestic violence, grief, abuse, ADHD, anger issues, self-esteem, and stress management. I offer respectful culturally-sensitive counseling services in different languages to individuals, couples and families with the aim of promoting self-growth, balance, empowerment, quality of life, and well being.
I started my career as a linguist, professor and researcher. I have a Ph.D. in linguistics and I was a professor at FIU for several years. At FIU, I developed a research program to study language development in bilingual toddlers that was funded by the NICHD.
My practice is focused on the client's strengths and use effective techniques such as CBT, Trauma Focused CBT, MBSR, and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MCBT) to help clients improve their lives, fulfill their goals and be happier. I also offer different workshops and support groups for grief, anxiety, teens, mindfulness and stress.
