I am originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico. However, I moved to the United States to continue my education when I was 18 years of age and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Tulane University and later completed a Masters in Elementary Education at the University of Florida. After working as an elementary school teacher for various years, I graduated with a doctorate in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in Children and Adolescents from Carlos Albizu University in Miami. After completing my predoctoral internship at the Goodman Psychological Services Center in Miami I moved to Houston, Texas to complete my postdoctoral fellowship at the Children’s Crisis Care. I am currently working as a clinical psychologist with ABS Kids conducting evaluations of children with developmental delays.

About

Gladys

What was your path to becoming a provider?

I have always been fascinated by the way human beings learn and have always enjoyed working with children. After spending some time teaching elementary school children, I decided to pursue my doctorate in Clinical Psychology with a specialization in children and adolescents to help students and their parents obtain a better understanding of their strengths and weaknesses and share ways to help them improve the way they learn, feel, and behave.

Why are you passionate about helping students with learning differences?

During my years as a teacher, I learned that there are many individuals in the school system who do not know how to help students with learning differences or who label these children as "lazy" or "noncompliant". As a clinical psychologist, one of my duties is to help others understand that children with learning differences have the capacity to learn if the material is presented in a way they can understand and that not all of us learn the same way.

What gets you excited about Parallel?

I am excited to work with children and adolescents whose parents want to better understand them and find ways to help them improve their learning and their emotional and behavioral functioning.
