Noemi Aguila-Marquez, PhD Candidate, LCSW, IMH-E, MSW, HS

I am Noemi Marquez, Licensed Clinical Social Worker. Clinical Social Work is a combination of Sociology and Psychology. I have been working with families and children since I was 19 years old and always knew I wanted to use my work to help others. I graduated from St. Thomas University in 2000 with a Bachelors Degree in Human Services and a minor in Religious Studies. I worked in my field and realized that I wanted to do psychotherapy. I went back to school at Barry University and earned my Masters in Clinical Social Work in 2003. I am currently in the PhD in Social Work Program in Barry University to advance my knowledge and research base regarding trauma, foster care, and transgender children.

Throughout my career I have helped adults, children, and teens work through whatever has been holding them back. Whether it be through getting a deeper understanding of their situation, learning new skills to handle their situation, offering that support in a lonely situation, or helping them get their life on track to meet their personal/professional goals. More recently, because of the boom of immigration, I have been faced with helping people keep their families together as they battle through immigration issues. Over all, I have helped people deal with the scariest things you can find on the news to the anxieties of having a new baby.

I have specialized training and experience in Preschool Trauma Therapy (ages 1.5-5), Infant Mental Health (ages 0-5), Gender and Sexuality (GLBTQ), Child Parent Psychotherapy, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy,Seeking Safety, Adolescence, Foster Care, Adoption, Parenting Skills, Behavior Therapy (Like in TV show The Nanny), families dealing with immigration issues, and Developmental Training and Screening to local Day Cares.

Soy Noemí Márquez, Licenciada en Trabajo Social Clínico. Trabajo Social Clinico es la combinación de Psicología y Sociología. Estado trabajando con familias y los niños desde que tenía 19 años y siempre supe que quería usar mi trabajo para ayudar a otros. Me gradué de la Universidad de St. Thomas en 2000 con Bachiderato en Servicios Humanos y una especialización en Estudios Religiosos. Trabaje en mi campo y me di cuenta que quería dedicarme a psicoterapia. Regrese a Universidad Barry y obtuve mi Maestría en Trabajo Social Clínico en 2003. Estoy trabajando hacia la Doctoria en Trabajo Social en la Universidad Barry para avanzar el conocimiento y los estudios sociales de trauma, niños foster, y niños transgénero.

Durante mi carrera he ayudado adultos, niños y adolescentes a trabajar sobre los problemas que los aguantan en la vida. Ya sea a través de obtener una comprensión más profunda de su situación, el aprendizaje de nuevas técnicas para manejar su situación, ofreciendo ese apoyo en una situación solitaria, o ayudarles a poner su vida en camino de cumplir sus objetivos personales / profesionales. Más recientemente, debido al auge de la inmigración, se me ha proporcionado como ayudar a las personas mantener a sus familias unidas en su lucha a través de los temas de inmigración. En resumen, he ayudado a las personas a enfrentar las cosas más difíciles que puede encontrar en la vida hasta las ansias de tener un nuevo bebé. 

Tengo entrenamientos especiales y experiencia enTrauma en niños Preescolares (1.5-5 anos), Salud Mental Infantil (0-5 años), Género y Sexualidad (GLBTQ), Adolescencia, Foster Care, Adopción, Habilidades Paternales, Terapia de Conducta (igual que en la seria de televisión The Nanny), las familias sufriendo con cuestiones de inmigración, y hacer Evaluaciones y Entrenamientos de Desarrollo a circulo infantiles locales.
