In my practice I find that families have varying types of needs and therefore offer on-site services as well as office hours, with a wide range of days and times available. This affords me the opportunity to understand a child and family in their environment. There are also several options for adult clients. I strongly believe that therapy needs to be evidenced based and individually tailored in order to be effective


Insurance is not accepted, however Psychmiami offers a range of payment options and packages.
