I have been helping individuals, couples and families achieve a stronger connection for 30+ years. I have taught classes at the graduate school at UM and provided numerous workshops, groups and presentations in South Florida. In the latter part of my career I developed a specialty working with addictions and helping family members. After serving as Clinical Supervisor of South Miami Hospital's Addiction Treatment Program, I continued this specialty in my practice. See my website for further information on articles I have written and an addiction resource site I created.
I am a Certified Master's Level Addiction Professional and have used my training and experience to focus on working with addiction and those affected by it. Providing education and rebuilding these relationships has led many to take control of their lives and reunite with those they care about.
My training in Family Systems and experience working with families and couples has led to an appreciation of the importance of having all of the pieces in place before being able to make accurate assessments and effective interventions.
Durante más de 30 años, he ayudado a individuos, parejas y familias a lograr una conexión más fuerte. He brindado talleres, grupos y presentaciones para ayudar en este enfoque también. En la última parte de mi carrera, desarrollé una especialidad trabajando con adicciones y ayudando a miembros de la familia. Después de desempeñarme como Supervisora Clínico del Programa de Tratamiento de Adicciones del Hospital South Miami, continué esta especialidad en mi práctica. Visite mi sitio web para obtener más información sobre los artículos que he escrito y sobre un sitio de recursos para la adicción que he creado. Mi práctica tiene dos ubi
También soy un profesional certificado en adicciones de nivel de maestría y he usado mi entrenamiento y experiencia para enfocarme en trabajar con la adicción y los familiares afectados. Proporcionar educación y reconstruir estas relaciones ha llevado a muchos a tomar el control de sus vidas y reunirse con sus seres queridos.
Mi capacitación en sistemas familiares y mi experiencia en el trabajo con familias y parejas me ha llevado a apreciar la importancia de tener todas las piezas en su lugar antes de poder realizar evaluaciones precisas e intervenciones efectivas.
