You want a healthy child , thriving in this world.
Children are faced with new challenges, some of which are unique to their generation. It can be a struggle to find the balance between parent and friend. It takes a while to work up the nerve to even have a conversation with your child , and then..they blow you off. Despite your best efforts, talking, good cop/bad cop, rewards, consequences, you just can't get through to them. The tension is getting thicker, arguing more often, and disciplining is just not working. Let's work together to help your child grow and learn through life's many challenges.

While many children and adolescents try to express themselves through words, it is not their most competent means of communication.
Families can sometimes get stuck in destructive behavior patterns that affect all the members in different ways. When challenges arise either individually or as a whole, everyone is impacted and shares in the struggle. I embrace the power of the family unit. Throughout the therapeutic process, various forms of experiential and cognitive therapy will be woven into family sessions. Allowing the family to talk more freely and use creative forms of expression with one another can deepen the family's experience of each other and their own selves; thereby increasing understanding, enhancing communication pathways, and improving the overall relationship.

I am attuned to the importance of play in the life of children and teens as well as client creativity and resilience (at any age) in order to tap into and co-create rich and vivifying narratives.
I am most interested in helping clients write their own stories that highlight strengths, successes and effective past problem solving. I do not focus on pathology and problems, as this only perpetuates what narrative therapists call the 'thin story'. I draw upon client creativity, popular culture, expressive materials, the strength of the relationship and the treatment outcome literature in order to work toward client-expressed goals. As a Board Certified Diplomate in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology (ABPP), I am uniquely qualified to work with children and teens.

To be able to give a child power, motivation, and confidence will set the foundation for a successful life.
“We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves or more deeply engrossed in anything than when we are playing”. -Charles Schaefer. Play is vital for children to express themselves and learn about their surroundings and general environment. In addition to exploration, it is essential for their development. Allowing the space for them to play freely generates the possibility of understanding their world and their motivation. Instead of the traditional format of communication, we often learn more about a child 's thoughts, feelings, motivations, and struggles by watching them play.

I have more than 10 years of experience working with children ages 5 to 18 in Miami-Dade and Broward County Public Schools.
My friends think, "I'm doing great." My family says, "Hang in there." My fingers text, "I'm OK". My heart says, "I'm broken". Whether you are struggling with making the decision to seek therapy and/or finding the "right" therapist, it is important to know that seeking therapy is one of the most important steps you can take towards personal freedom. Knowing this, I am compassionate about promoting a safe environment that empowers my clients to explore social and emotional concerns while finding the right choices for the journey of life.
