About Me

I was born and raised in Venezuela. My educational background is in the field of engineering. I completed the graduate education in the United States, which includes Master of Arts in Guidance Counseling and Doctor of Education in Counseling Psychology. I spent the first few years of my career serving the population of adult in-patient level of care in Punta Gorda, Florida. I feel gratitude in serving the mental health needs of the community in mainly Charlotte and Sarasota County. I offer mental health counseling services in English and in Spanish language to also serve the Hispanic and Latino Americans community.
