What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?

When I work with my clients, I want them to feel that they can trust me. Trust and honesty are the most important things in a therapist-client relationship.

Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?

I believe I am a guide, a teacher and a friend.

What drives your passion for seeing clients?

Each day with a client is an opportunity to invest in their future. And this is what drives my passion for seeing them, knowing that every day when I am with them they do a little step forward.

How do you believe clients "get better"?

I believe clients get better when they connect with the therapist and let the therapist guide them in the learning process.

Personal Hobbies

When I'm not working, I enjoy taking my dog for long walks and doing outside activities. I also love to spend time at the beach and enjoy the sunny Florida's weather. I am also a food lover! Any opportunity to try new places in town, I take it! But pizza will always be my favorite food :)
