About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor and qualified supervisor, who has been working in addiction and mental health field for over 18 years. I have begun my career in the substance abuse/mental health field in 2002 upon obtaining Bachelor's Degree in Psychology. Since then I have worked in all areas of treatment, behavioral health technician, forensic case manager, substance abuse and dual diagnosed counselor, and in recent seven years as a clinical director of residential and outpatient treatment center. I earned Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling at Stetson University in 2007, and became a LMHC in 2012. I volunteered professional services to the Wounded Warrior Project and volunteered time facilitating equine therapy through Gratitude America Program for veterans. In 2012 I was trained as an EMDR clinician and am currently seeking EMDR certification. Throughout my professional career I have found tremendous joy and honor in being hands on clinician assisting clients with diverse intensity of mental and substance abuse issues. I have walked with my clients through simple to complex life adjustment, traveled through most intimate and painful memories, and witnessed healing through holistic venues of clinical approaches that I specialized in.
By heart I am an Existentialist therapist who will assist you in finding your own meaning in life. Through Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Solution Focused approaches I can support you in your process of healing and becoming best self.
Schedule your session today and begin the process of healing as we all deserve to reach out fullest potential of being ourselves.
