If you are tired of the lying, sneaking around, cheating, or lack of trust in your relationship, this message is for you. Addiction and substance abuse can tear your relationships apart making it hard to enjoy life or sleep at night. I help individuals and couples impacted by substance abuse and chronic illness overcome challenges and live more fulfilling lives.
I know first hand the impact chronic illness and addiction have on a family. I have lived through the ups and downs of treatment and recovery. When an individual is ill or given a diagnosis, the entire family is impacted during and after treatment. It's a challenging time and many people just don't get it. Our sessions are a great time to talk about what is going on, the good and the bad, with zero judgment. I bring a fresh, modern approach to therapy and am on a mission to debunk the cultural “stigma” of therapy. I provide individual, couples, and family therapy online throughout Florida and in my Miami office. Whether you need someone to support and encourage you, someone to talk to, or someone to give advice, I am here to help you. 
My ideal client is an adult with a chronically ill family member or loved one batting substance abuse or addiction. I excel at helping individuals, couples, and families who are struggling to manage the stress of chronic health conditions and addiction recovery. I have worked with countless families with a chronically ill child or spouse. I also enjoy helping families in early addiction recovery or couples facing a new diagnosis establish a new normal and improve relationship satisfaction. Additionally, I provide counseling to adult children of alcoholics & dysfunctional families.
I received my undergraduate degree from Tulane University and a masters in counseling from the University of Miami. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and licensed psychotherapist, as well as the owner of The Collaborative Counseling Center in Miami, FL. I have obtained additional training and certification in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Mediation, and the Gottman Method.  I tend to practice Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with my clients. This involves teaching you how to connect your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. With couples, I am trained in Level 1 Gottman Method and am currently completing Level 2. This allows me to work with couples to improve their communication, compassion, and understanding. 
I would love to help you through this difficult time in your life. Take a look at my website for more information and blog articles - www.collabcounseling.com.www.collabcounseling.com
