A Bit About Me
I began my pursuit of higher education by obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Miami. I continued my academic career at Nova Southeastern University, in Davie, FL, where I completed a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, along with a specialization in Medical Family Therapy; this unique approach addresses the systemic interactions among patients, their families, and their doctors and supports the family system when the focus of the family is reoriented to center on health issues.
I then proceeded to complete a Doctorate in Marriage and Family Therapy from Nova Southeastern University. Through my work with the Ph.D. and Master’s degree in Family Therapy, I specialize in and am passionate about therapeutic treatment with adoption, medical cases (the delicate position of caregivers during illness in the family), depression, anxiety, addiction, adolescents, and the multiple dynamics encompassing couples counseling and military families. I have a particular respect and reverence for the aging population as they navigate through various stages of change. Stemming from my own family upbringing and background, I have ample experience with diverse populations and honor the valued traditions of different cultures. I am fluent in English, Spanish, and Hebrew and have over 20 years of professional work and research experience in the field of Marriage and Family Therapy.
I am looking forward to working with you!
