Liany also acquired specialized certifications in Trauma Resolution and Relapse Prevention, Collaborative Divorce, DBT for Self-Injurious and Suicidal Behaviors, De-escalation, and is a Certified Group Facilitation Specialist as well as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP).
After obtaining her license in Marriage and Family Therapy and completing her APA-accredited internship as a Behavioral Health Therapist at Broward House, a nonprofit agency that provides therapeutic services and medical linkage to individuals with severe and persistent mental health and substance abuse issues, Liany became the Clinical Prevention Manager where she worked collaboratively with the Florida Department of Health to further meet the needs of the community. Liany has also previous employment experience as a Behavioral Health Therapist at Renaissance Charter School where she provided psychological evaluations, therapeutic supportive services, and crisis intervention for elementary and middle school aged students.
Today, Liany is committed to providing quality care in a private group practice setting located in Plantation, Florida. Liany takes a multi-phased and systemic approach when helping children, adolescents, couples, individuals, and families who may be facing a number of challenges such as anxiety, depression, trauma, anger management, marital discourse/familial conflict, addiction/recovery, and significant life transitions. Liany believes that her clients are the experts of their own lives. She stands side by side with her clients to help them externalize the problem without having to identify with it, and give meaning to their experiences. With an understanding that each client’s life story is unique to them, she evaluates and creates an individual treatment plan helping them to overcome obstacles and navigate their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors in order to lead happier lives within the context of their systems. By implementing treatment modalities including, Person-Centered, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment, Narrative, Solution-Focused, and Psychodynamic, Liany’s goal is to provide her clients with a safe, non-judgmental therapeutic environment where they may share the challenges that are impeding them from leading the lives and relationships they desire, explore new possible solutions, as well as obtain the tools needed to cope with life’s challenges in a more effective manner.
