D & M Behavioral Solutions (D & M) was established in 2022 out of the desire to provide ethical, integral, and comprehensive mental health services to South Florida residents. Conveniently located in Pembroke Pines, Florida, it serves both Miami-Dade and Broward clients through in-person home visits and telehealth appointments. D & M specialists provide mental health services for children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly. Our approach is solution-focused as we partner with you to find their strengths and help them get the desired results.
With over 10 years’ experience as a mental health counselor, D & M Behavioral Solutions’ founder, Idolidia Alvarez, opened the doors of D & M as a response to what is available today in the market, hoping to provide real solutions to families and individual clients who need guidance as they navigate better mental and behavioral health. We do this in two ways, thanks to the experience accumulated over the past 10 years. One as a mental health counselor, applying different disciplines to ensure clients receive the desired results. This is done through observation and application of various rhythms and routines that have helped clients move from stuck to thriving. Second, as a board-certified behavioral analyst, Alvarez hopes to help families navigate a child’s unwanted behavior and create a comprehensive plan that moves the entire family from frustrated and unequipped to connected and hopeful for the child’s behavioral improvement.
What makes D & M Behavioral Solutions different is that our specialists are prepared to work with our clients from day one. We connect fully with the client’s needs and create a plan of action for our clients. Our most successful clients are those who are ready to work and improve not just their mental health, but remove their struggles as well. They are also ready to change their lives through the work they do. This is not just in session, but between sessions as life brings back the very things they’re trying to overcome. We help clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, mood disorders, OCD, and more. We also help families deal with children who have ASD through Applied Behavioral Analysis.
We believe in the power of strength-based approaches to mental health and our satisfied clients are proof that we can help our clients get the results they’re looking for and walk with them into a more fulfilling life. Mental health is not a business to us, it’s the way we can better serve our community and create positive change for those around us. Our philosophy is that mentally healthy individuals help create more united families, and united families help shape our community for the good. Mental health is not our business, but our purpose. We do it to see lives changed, and every time a life changes, our commitment is renewed. We are who we are because of the results we see in our clients’ lives.
We believe there’s no day like today to change your mental health and to start living your most fulfilling life. And that is the legacy we plan to leave in our community and beyond.
