Pascale Denis, MSEd, LMHC, Counselor in Coral Gables
I work with adults and older adolescents facing challenges in their lives, their relationships, working at understanding and embracing who they are. Addressing acculturation issues affecting recent or second generation immigrants, creating safe spaces where gender and affectional orientation can be explored are also important areas of my work. A psychotherapist, and a board certified psychiatrist in Haiti, my approach is psychoanalytically informed but I incorporate concepts from other theories, depending on my clients' needs. I conduct sessions in English, French and Creole.
For transracial adoptive parents and same-sex parents who adopt transracially, stressors include the differences in culture and the losses brought on by immigrating. Together we build a space where similarities and differences are addressed, in which families can find meaning and create their own narrative, as they interact with each other, and their community.
Over the past years, I have also been working with cancer patients and their families, providing them a supportive and empathic space to explore their options, redefine and discuss their priorities, reinforce and validate healthy coping skills. I also run a bi-monthly Support Group, in Creole, for Haitians dealing with cancer.
