LICENSED Marriage & Family Therapist
My Background & Education
I am a National Certified Counselor, a Florida Registered Intern in Mental Health Counseling, a Marriage and Family Therapist and a Certified Distance Counselor. I speak four languages fluently, which includes English, Portuguese, Spanish, and French.
I hold a Master’s degree in the Science of Counseling from Barry University; a dual specialization in mental health and marital counseling. I also have my Bachelor’s degree in business, with a major in marketing and advertising from Florida Atlantic University. I specialize in working with women who suffer form postpartum depression and women issues.
I have extensive experience in working with children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families with problems including depression, anxiety, mood disorders, behavioral issues, post-traumatic stress disorder, parent and couple therapy and career counseling to name a few. I am am also a member of the American Counseling Association, American mental Health Association, and Broward Chamber of Commerce. I have worked in both the non-profit and the corporate sector. This includes experience in marketing, public relations, customer relations, banking, leadership, communication and sales.
Since my own experience of postpartum depression, I have become fiercely aware that many woman do not have support during this supposedly "celebratory" part of their lives. Now, of course, the birth of your new baby is a gift from the heavens and a true miracle, but unfortunately the emotional and hormonal roller coaster that many women experience leave them feeling alone and unsure of why they are "not feeling themselves."
Not to mention, the difficulty of lifestyle transition, especially if you are a new mom. I am here to support all women who are going through the symptoms of postpartum depression. It is my mission to support women globally as well as spread the word of support and awareness about how debilitating postpartum depression can be with little or no support. I am here to help guide you through so that you can start feeling "yourself again."
Fun Facts About Me
I love attending yearly training's as well as local conferences because I always love to learn about new things, especially if they benefit my overall mental and physical health. I have a beautiful family and a loving husband who I adore. I also love to workout and do pretty much anything that includes a "new adventure." Stepping outside of my comfort zone is something that I often like to challenge myself to do. It's not always easy, but I love the feeling of transformation I get to experience when I do something new or different from the norm.
