I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida with over 15 years of experience in the social services field, including 8 years as a therapist. I am passionate about working with clients who have experienced trauma, and helping them end the cycles of negative behaviors and emotions that a traumatic past can produce. I also have experience working with anxiety, depression, and grief/loss.
I believe strongly in the connections between thoughts, feelings and behaviors (also known as cognitive behavioral therapy), and that you can change all three by changing one. I do not believe I am here to give you the answers, but to be here to help you find your own answers. You will be the one taking the next steps toward improvement; my job is to support you on that journey.
Taking the first step toward seeking help is incredibly brave, and I value the trust my clients place in me to be present in their darkest times. I hope you will trust me to take this journey with you, and I look forward to working with you.

Andrea is very professional and good at what she does. I haven't seen her for too long, but already feel like I have made great progress. She is extremely easy to talk to, empathetic and doesn't force anything on you. If you're in need of help and would like a caring voice to talk to while helping you heal then you have found the perfect therapist.
She's a Hero.
I am blessed to have Andrea as my counselor. She is a great support system and shows me other ways to take care of myself when I am not talking to her. She is teaching me things I can grow with.
