Working with the Latinx Community

Genesis’ Bio: I am a bilingual Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida and currently practice at South Miami Psychology Group. I earned my Bachelor’s in Psychology from Florida International University and continued to earn my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling with a certificate in Marriage, Couples, and Family Therapy from the University of Central Florida.

I have worked in outpatient and residential treatment centers for co-occurring disorders providing ample experience working with individuals presenting with an array of mental health issues and substance use. I have worked providing relationship education to couples and individuals at the Marriage and Family Research Institute at the University of Central Florida. Most recently, I worked providing trauma-informed therapy to unaccompanied minors under the Office of Refugee Resettlement.

I integrate evidenced-based approaches including Rational Emotional Behavioral Therapy, The Gottman Method, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Solution-Focused Techniques to help clients make meaningful and long-lasting changes. I meet each of my clients where they are at in their journey and tailor my approaches to each client’s unique needs.

I work with individuals, couples, and families. I conduct group sessions and relationship education workshops. I’m passionate about working with individuals in early recovery, the loved ones of individuals impacted by addiction, and immigrants struggling to adjust to a new life away from home. I help families stay together by providing comprehensive psychological evaluations for immigration cases.
