Online Therapy in Florida

Hello!

I’m Ana Maria. I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist based in the South Florida area.  At this time, I’m happy to welcome all Florida residents to my virtual office. As a systemic therapist, I work with individuals and couples, always keeping in mind the big relational picture. I love working with clients who are curious, who don’t mind a little digging into family history, and who understand that healing involves more than just symptom relief. 

I have extensive experience working with immigrants, and in particular feel called to work with Latinas living in South Florida who are struggling with major life transitions. Going through all these complex processes and changes can lead you to develop symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Perhaps you may be new to the U.S. and are having a hard time adjusting to a new life, facing the challenges of adapting to a new culture. Or you are going through life  changes such as menopause, divorce, parenting teenagers, or are facing the challenges of being an empty nester, grieving your role as a mother, and trying to figure out your new purpose and identity. 

Perhaps you may be grieving the losses you experienced when you moved to the U.S. Your professional and socio-economic status, the business that you build with so much love and dedication.  

Restarting your life again, building everything from scratch, comes with a lot of pain. But it can also can bring great rewards when you work through it!

And I’m here to help you to get where you want to be.

My training

I have a Psychology degree from the Universidad de los Andes, Colombia, and Masters in Psychology,  Marriage and Family Therapy track from the Carlos Albizu University, Miami, FL. 

I have extensive experience as a therapist working with immigrant and refugee children, adults, and families who experience significant trauma as victims of domestic violence, human trafficking, and torture and persecution in their countries of origin.

Working on these settings not only provided me with the opportunity to witness the stories of trauma and resilience of my clients, but also created an interest in supporting professionals whom because of their work on behalf our the most vulnerable communities around the world, tend to suffer from high levels of burnout, secondary trauma, and compassion fatigue. 

About Me

I’m originally from Colombia, and have lived in the U.S for over 20 years. I also had the opportunity to leave in Belgium for a year as an exchange student. I speak fluent English, Spanish, and French.
