Hello, my name is Lisa A Hernandez and I am a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern who is excited to work with new clients. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Florida Atlantic University and my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. My clinical experience includes working with individuals 18 and older at a crisis stabilization unit providing individual therapy, group therapy and suicide intervention. My experience also includes working as a psychosocial rehabilitation group facilitator with Spanish-speaking geriatrics population via telehealth, as well as working as a child and family therapist providing individual and family therapy to children and teens who have been victims or have been exposed to domestic violence and other traumas.
Therapeutic methods and approaches I’ve applied in my practices are Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, Play therapy, and Filial therapy (ages 4 and under). I am bi-lingual in which I speak, write, and read Spanish fluently. I also come from a mixed Hispanic background which makes my perspective and therapeutic approaches and dynamics culturally diverse and broad.
I am a product of Broward county and I believe the best way I can give back to the community that raised me is by providing essential therapeutic services and expertise to individuals struggling with Mental Health concerns. I am a firm believer that, “there is no health without Mental Health” and my purpose is to help others find that light at the end of their tunnels.
