Get to Know Me
I am a bilingual board certified Clinical Psychologist in Puerto Rico and Florida. Born and raised in Ponce, Puerto Rico, I share a profound connection with my clients who also have strong ties to their cultural roots. In 2015, I made the decision to relocate to Florida, seeking new opportunities for personal and professional growth. During my time in Florida, I completed my post-doctoral training in 2017, further enhancing my expertise and expanding my therapeutic skill set.
This cross-cultural experience has enriched my perspective as a psychologist, allowing me to work effectively with diverse populations and individuals from various backgrounds. I bring a multicultural lens to my practice, valuing and embracing the richness of each individual's identity and experiences. I am fluent in both English and Spanish, enabling me to provide assessments in the language that best suits my clients' needs.
With over 13 years of experience in forensic and immigration psychological evaluations, I have developed a deep understanding of the complex intersection between psychology, law, and immigration processes. Throughout my career, I have worked extensively in conducting thorough assessments and providing expert opinions in legal contexts. I am well-versed in conducting interviews, administering psychological tests, and analyzing data to form professional opinions that are admissible in court.
As a psychologist, I will listen, understand, and guide my clients' through the assessment process. I approach my work with honesty, transparency, and a deep sense of responsibility. My goal is to provide evaluations that are comprehensive, objective, and contribute valuable insights to the legal processes, ultimately supporting fair and just outcomes for those involved.

Pure Mind Psychometrics currently practice under a self-pay model. While using insurance is beneficial when accessing your mental health benefits and lowering your out-of-pocket costs, there are some potential drawbacks to the use of insurance.
When a client pays for services through self-pay as opposed to utilizing insurance both confidentiality and treatment remain between the client and us. Also, treatment decisions, length of therapy sessions, and many other important decisions are always kept between us. However, when utilizing health insurance you may be relinquishing confidentiality, treatment decisions, length of therapy and other pertinent decisions to your insurance company.
If you decide that, given this information, you would still like to take advantage of your insurance plan's mental health benefits, we will be more than happy to provide the information needed for a company to reimburse you for an out-of-network provider.
