I previously worked as a counselor with Major Medical Center in Miami and worked with inner city children. I left Miami and moved to Cape Coral and I worked as a Grief Counselor with Hope Hospice of Southwest Florida and Pathways of Hope Counseling Center.
The Lee County Counselors’ Association awarded me with a Certificate of Appreciation for my outstanding counseling service both in the community and their schools. I also appeared on WinkTV after 9/11 talking about “Grief and Loss.”
During the aftermath of 9/11, I facilitated group meetings for members of the community. I also presented to other professionals an educational seminar “Coping with Terrorism.” During this same period, I volunteered with the American Red Cross to offer my counseling services. I became a group leader/facilitator for a Group @ Hope Hospice “A Support Network for Military Families” . I also provided numerous educational classes, “Working with People with Disabilities,” “Coping with Long-Term Illness and Dementia,” and “Grief and Loss,” just to name a few.
Today, I continue to provide support to individuals, families, and members in the community on a wide range of topic and issues. .
