Online Therapy in Florida

Hello!

I’m Ana Maria Orduz. 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 to adjust to major life transitions. Going through all these complex processes and changes can lead you to develop symptoms of anxiety and depression, to feel as if your life has no meaning or purpose, to find yourself filled with resentment towards others, and to feel regret about the decisions you’ve made. 

I also work with international professionals who work in high-stress environments, who are deeply committed to making the world a better place, advocating for vulnerable individuals and communities around the world. I help these clients to heal from work-related trauma and burnout.

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.
