I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist, Speaker, and Consultant. Combining my expertise in assessment and therapy, I founded Strengths and Solutions, where I provide comprehensive psychological services in-office at in Hallandale Beach and throughout the state of Florida via telehealth. Through my extensive coursework, clinical rotations, and postdoctoral employment, I received specialized training and years of experience in therapy for adults. I am skilled at using strengths-based and solutions-focused approaches to enhance clarity and positive outlook in the wake of difficult adjustment and life challenges. I specialize in treating anxiety and depression using scientifically researched methods that are evidenced to result in long-term change and improved mental health.
I have also honed in on my passion and specialty of assessment of children and adults with learning disabilities, ADHD, giftedness, intellectual delays, and mood disorders. My history of adapting to diverse work settings, including schools, hospitals, and community clinics, with clients of various backgrounds has enhanced my ability to develop tailored recommendations to meet each of my clients’ needs. I am additionally experienced in providing documentation needed for clients seeking accommodations or services. For psychological evaluations, I have also collaborated with Individualized Education Plan (IEP) teams, the Department of Children and Families (DCF), and multidisciplinary practitioners, such as occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, and psychiatrists, to advocate for the well-being of my clients and the effective implementation of my reports’ recommendations.

There, I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, with a concentration in Multicultural Psychology. I additionally hold a Master of Psychology degree from this same institution.
