My name is Dinorah Escala. I am a mental health counselor licensed in Florida. I am originally from Panama and have had the fortune to live and experience the culture in multiple Central and South American countries. Before becoming a counselor, I worked as an Interpreter/Translator and a Risk Manager for the Panama Canal. Having collaborated through the years with individuals from a variety of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, I have the expertise and interest in working with immigrants to advance their dreams of becoming legal residents of the United States. As an immigrant myself, I am well aware of the many obstacles aspiring United States citizens endure in the pursuit of their dream. I work hard to ensure my immigration evaluations meet the highest standards in the industry and I treat all my clients with the respect and consideration they deserve. Currently, my only professional focus is on the preparation of comprehensive immigration evaluations for attorneys.
