About Me

I have experience working with adolescents, adults, couples and families struggling with unsatisfying relationships, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, eating disorders, low self esteem, medical illnesses, academic stress, career indecision, life events and role transition.


Dr. Singer's philosophy is one of respect for the individual and belief in the human spirit. She believes in each and every person's ability for growth and happiness and that her role is one of teaching, support and guidance. Her style of psychotherapy begins with a cognitive behavioral base and integrates many different schools of thought tailored to meet the client's individual needs with the goal of bringing about meaningful change in their lives. She assesses the situation and helps the client find their personal "roadmap" to a more fulfilling life.


I specialize in working with individuals, couples, and families who are in distress or desire personal growth. I believe that a supportive, compassionate therapeutic relationship is the basis for change. My approach to treatment is flexible and individualized integrating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with a variety of insight oriented and problem-solving approaches that help my clients achieve positive change leading to happier lives and fulfilling relationships.

My areas of expertise include working with couples, families, adults and adolescents. I specialize in the treatment of family and relationship issues, parenting, eating disorders, stress management, and substance abuse as well as anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, grief and self-esteem issues. Therapy is available in both English and Spanish.

I offer a specialized experience for intact, divorced (or divorcing) families that uses a Coordinated Family Therapy approach wherein the system is re-balanced and relationships are repaired so that both parents and children learn to work together as a family unit.

As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.


I was born in New Jersey and grew up in Miami coming from and culturally diverse family and neighborhood. I am bilingual in English and Spanish, though English is my primary language. I have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren that offer me a wealth of insight, perspective and joy. I believe that we offer all that we are to our clients in this profession, though they never know what the wealth of experiences are that we draw from each day. I believe that we must also fill our own cups in order to give to others. Experiencing the joy in life is essential to my soul.

I graduated from Nova Southeastern University with Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2003 after completing my internship year at Northwestern University’s Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) where I worked for 4 days with the students in Evanston and 1 day a week downtown Chicago with the Medical and Law students. Afterwards, completing my year of Post-Doctoral Residency at the The Renfrew Center of Eating Disorders where I honed my skill as a psychologist. After becoming licensed, I opened my present office in Weston Town Center where I have been in Private Practice for since 2005. Over this time, my skill and experience has grown and deepened in depth as a psychologist. In my undergraduate and graduate studies, I focused on a variety of skills and issues, mindful of becoming a well-rounded therapist.

After many years of working in the field and treating a variety of clients with Substance Use Issues, I receive my Master’s Level Certified Addiction Professional Certification (MCAP) in 2016. In addition, over the course of my career working with many individuals and families with Eating Disorders, I qualified for my certification as an Eating Disorder Specialist in 2015 (CEDS) and proudly accepting the designation of Certified Eating Disorder Specialist-Supervisor(CED-S) in 2019.

I bring all my knowledge, skill and experience to all I do. In my practice I use IntegrativePsychotherapy in which the affective behavior, cognitive, physical, social and spiritual aspects of an individual are used in treatment. I work from a cognitive behavior base and integrate psychodynamic, existential, humanistic orientations as appropriate taking into consideration their family of origin experiences and their current circumstances.
