Practice Description: Most people experience thoughts, feelings & behaviors that prevent them from being truly happy or accomplishing their life goals. I am a psychotherapist in private practice in Miami Lakes, Fl. For over 30 years, I have been helping people to heal and change their lives through the therapeutic process using an eclectic approach to psychotherapy. Also, I am a published author. I have many years of successful experience working with adults who are experiencing a wide-range of difficulties such as, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, self-esteem issues, social anxiety, grief & loss, relationship issues, adult survivors of childhood abuse & trauma, PTSD and ACOA issues.

As co-author of the book: ADULT SURVIVORS OF CHILDHOOD EMOTIONAL, PHYSICAL, & SEXUAL ABUSE: DYNAMICS & TREATMENT as well as having lectured on this topic. I am an expert in working with Adult Survivors of Abuse. The aftereffects do not heal themselves. I Can Help.

Our work together involves a collaborative effort to identify the underlying sources of your difficulties, change self-defeating patterns of behaviors and learn new and healthier ways to deal and cope with life's challenges.
