My name is Charleen Gonzalez, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in the Miami area. I graduated from the University of Miami in 2014 with a Master's Degree in Science and Education-Marriage and Family Therapy. Before my master's degree I attended the University of South Florida and graduated with Bachelor's Degrees in Psychology and Gerontology. I was born in Caracas Venezuela, and moved to South Florida as an infant. I lived most of my life in Tampa before moving back down to South Florida. I am an animal lover, travel enthusiast, social justice advocate, and overall humanitarian. I worked in the community providing mental health care to clients in their home and schools for several years after graduate school. I started private practice because I have a passion for helping those who are struggling and need one on one support. I truly care about my client's well-being and guarantee empathetic counseling and psychological services catered to their needs. My style in therapy is person centered. You are the expert on your own life, and I'm just here to help guide you on your journey. I provide insight when needed, teach coping skills, and provide unconditional positive regard on a consistent basis.
Since 2014, I have been helping clients manage challenging life experiences, and find new perspectives on their situations. Client well-being is my number one priority, and I go above and beyond to help my clients through through all their obstacles. Get in touch with me today to start your therapy journey, and not only survive but thrive.
