Julissa Artiles, Psy.D. 

I was born and raised in South Florida and enjoy working with diverse populations. My passion for psychology started in high school after taking my first psychology class. I never had to give it a second thought; I never changed majors in undergraduate school because I knew with one hundred percent certainty that this was something I wanted to do. When I entered graduate school I had an opportunity to work with clients suffering from Parkinson's Disease among other  medical conditions and it was then when I developed an intense interest in helping those suffering from both acute and chronic medical conditions. I obtained both a Master's and Doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Nova Southeastern University and completed a pre-doctoral internship at Jackson Memorial Hospital with a focus on providing consultation to medical staff and psychology services to medically-compromised patients. Currently,  I am licensed in the state of Florida. I have several years of experience in providing individual and group therapy in both English and Spanish for adults and older adults who have struggled with depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationship issues, low self-esteem, ADHD, post-partum depression, chronic medical conditions (e.g, diabetes, HIV, cancer, chronic pain conditions, and cardiovascular diseases), lifestyle changes (weight management and smoking cessation), grief, and other challenges. When I'm not working, I enjoy being in the outdoors and spending time with friends and family.
