I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Florida with over 7 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a diverse range of concerns including depression, anxiety, addiction, incarceration, mood disorders, personality disorders, psychotic diagnoses, and ADHD. I have also engaged in therapy with many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm, interactive, and client focused. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solutions focused, and trauma informed care. I will facilitate our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
