Hi there! I am excited you have found my page. I love working with people on their journey to discover their passion in life, remove blocks that are keeping them from finding peace and learning to live as they have always dreamed.
I practice therapy in a lovely and comfortable office in Historic Downtown Summerville, South Carolina. I graduated with a Masters in Social Work from Fordham University in 1998, am a Licensed Independent Social Worker, specializing in Clinical Practice, and have been a therapist for 21 years. I absolutely love what I do! I speak both English and Spanish languages and am passionate in working with the Latinx community on major issues such as Mental Health, Acculturation and Immigration. I am also proud of the work I do with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples and have helped clients resolve multiple problems including needs for parenting skills training, domestic violence issues, anger management, parent/child relationship issues, marriage counseling, issues related to child welfare (DSS) and alcohol and drug education. Our working relationship begins with a thorough mental health assessments, diagnosis and creation of goal directed treatment plans.
I utilize a variety of techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Alternatives for families CBT, Couples Therapy, Stress Management, Increasing Self-worth, Assertiveness Training, Mood Management, Anxiety Reduction, Empowerment and Work/Life Balance.
Also, I now offer Clinical Supervision for LISW candidates.
I am a member of the Hispanic Business Association, and have been a member of NASW since March 2017.
