    Hello. It’s my pleasure to present some information about me and the services I provide. I specialize in working with individuals, couples and families, providing Psychotherapy and Relationship-Coaching in my private-practice office in Aventura, Florida. You are welcomed to call me with questions so we can discuss what I can do to help “You be the all that you can be”. Seeking better ways to improve your Self and your Relationships helps you become a better you. Here is a quote that is one of my guiding principles in my life and as a Psychotherapist & Relationship-Coach:

    “Your beliefs become your thoughts, your thoughts become your words, your words become your actions, your actions become your habits, your habits become your values, and your values become your destiny”. – Mahatma Gandhi



    Education and Work Experiences

    My Mission & My Process

    Reasons for Seeking my Psycho-therapeutic and Relationship-Coaching Services:

    People usually seek help from a psychotherapist/coach because they want to learn ways to improve their life and relationships. Employing a variety of coaching and psycho-therapeutic techniques, I coach people to help them find solutions to the often-repeated issues and patterns preventing them from reaching their goals. Most people are in relationships, whether with family, friends, co-workers, supervisors, professors, etc. To enhance relationships, sometimes the first step is to modify communication patterns, behaviors, thoughts, and emotions, which can then lead to self-improvement and growth. Effectively communicating thoughts and feelings can influence how others react, and when you sense a positive reaction from others, you will probably begin to behave and feel better, and thus, more invested in achieving goals.

    An influencing factor in how I work with clients stems from my journey of self-growth in my career and professional life. I have learned from my life-experiences and have motivated myself to improve and reach many goals. Most people want to achieve goals, yet think they can’t. Because of my experiences with struggling to achieve goals and then persevering towards my accomplishments, I have become the “go-to” guide and a mentor-coach, who assists people who are struggling with achieving goals. Realizing that goals can be attained is a process, whereby a person begins to find positive attributes within themselves, therefore the path to self-awareness, self-esteem, and growth becomes achievable.

    This quote has been a guiding factor in my life, it’s from a famous Socio-Biologist, Edward O. Wilson. He says: “You are capable of more than you know. Choose a goal that seems right for you and strive to be the best, however hard the path. Aim high. Behave honorably. Prepare to be alone at times, and to endure failure. Persist! The world needs all you can give.” As you go on your journey to “Self-Growth”, set realistic goals that are achievable, be patient with yourself and others, and persevere, for the path to growth is timeless and full of possibilities.

    How my Educational and Professional-Career Experiences will help You:

    As a “Certified Medical Family Therapist”, I work with people diagnosed with a medical illness and their family members, because the illness impacts a person’s emotions and relationships. Many people with an illness often keep their emotions bottled-up, which can influence the healing process. People often experience a sense of loss, thinking that their life has changed, and learning how to manage the illness also includes learning how to manage the emotional stress. I also provide Grief and Loss counseling to people experiencing many type of losses, including break-ups, separations, divorce, job-loss, life-transitions, empty-nesters, and death of a loved-one or a pet.

    The fast-paced world we live in increases our stress-level as we work diligently to accomplish as much as we can on a daily basis. This stresses our bodies, minds, emotions, and relationships. We feel depleted of our sense of self and our place in the world. This often creates lowered sense of self-worth. I work with many individuals who have experienced many circumstances that depleted their sense of self. Many of us come from life-situations where we felt that there was something lacking, yet couldn’t figure-out what that was. So we live with what we know until we talk with someone, like me – a coach – who can enlighten you as to what is keeping you from growing into who you want to become. Here’s a quote of mine that I said to a client recently, which helped her realize her growth-potential:

    “What we grow up in is what we know, and until we notice something different, that’s all we know”.

    In other words – it’s not until you do something different that you realize the limitations set upon you by others. So, don’t be ruled by what others say, be ruled by your inner-self – that is who you are – a strong and caring person ready to live a full life.
