I am bilingual (Spanish/English) clinical psychologist that specializes in the treatment of childhood disorders. I have obtained specialty training during my clinical internship (UM/ Jackson Memorial Hospital) and post-doctoral fellowship (University of California-Davis) in the area of child and adolescent psychology. I have over 10 years experience in various treatment settings that include lead psychologist at a multidisciplinary psychiatry clinic, inpatient crisis stabilization unit, adolescent residential treatment program, university counseling center and private practice in Boca Raton and Coral Springs for the past 5 years. Over the years, I have expanded my scope of treatment to encompass adults.Areas of clinical focus include the treatment of anxiety and depression throughout the lifespan, coping with life transitions, peer and interpersonal conflicts, family discord, chronic stress, poor self-concept, women’s issues, parenting and social communication problems. I provide individual and family therapy in English and Spanish.My approach to treatment involves working to create a solid therapeutic relationship in an environment that is empathic, warm and non-judgmental. Treatment also involves a balance of culturally sensitive practice and use of evidence based treatment that is customized to meet each unique patient’s needs.
