Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hi, my name is Florence Soares- Dabalos and I have been a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist since 2003 although I have been providing mental health services since 1996 as a trainee and intern. I believe in taking a non-judgmental approach because it is the relationship between client and therapist that will ensure the most positive growth. My areas of focus are multi-cultural counseling, stress, anxiety, and relationships. I enjoy working with clients who are diverse as I believe in treating the whole person using cultural humility and the RESPECTFUL Model. As an ally to the LGBTQ community, I am understanding of the needs and challenges each community member can face. And I contract out as a Clinical Supervisor for counseling interns who do not receive clinical supervision at their places of employment.
