I am a Counseling Psychologist and I received my Ph.d from University of Miami. I was a Professor in the Master's in Family Therapy Program at Biscayne College (now St. Thomas University). I was Director of the Family Life Center, a training and clinical center for 25 years. I have had my own private practice for the past 15 years. My clinical work has evolved through the years , exploring and developing a variety of approaches to best help my clients build positive, kind ways to respond to the emotional challenges they face in their lives. I love learning and being able to offer tools which can best serve my clients. I have been married for 38 years and have 3 grown sons, 2 of whom are married.
As a psychotherapist and coach, I love to work with individuals, couples and groups towards problem resolution and personal goal fulfillment. I also love to help community groups and business groups develop skills and reach their goals.

E.M.D.R (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)
Emotion Code Therapy
E.F.T (Emotional Freedom Technique)
New Decision Therapy
Body Talk Technique
N.E.T (Neuro-Emotional Technique)
