About me

Hello! My name is Audrey and I'm a licensed clinical social worker. I licensed in Florida and have been working as a licensed therapist for the past 33 years. In this time I have experience in helping clients with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, relationship issues, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, as well as most other mental health issues. I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to work in varied mental health settings, including private practice, inpatient hospital, day treatment program, and public school. This allows me to better understand how our environment impacts our experiences in therapy. Whether you're looking to address issues from your past or issues that you are presently living with, I am able to assist you in resolution and skill building to better manage your life experiences.

Taking the first step to reach out can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started! I look forward to us working together to help you reach your goals for better living.

Best therapist hands down. She has helped me change my entire life in just 1 year. She has been such a great source of guidance and encouragement for me and has truly changed my life forever. The relationship she builds with you is priceless and I genuinely can’t say thank you enough to her for all she has done for me.

I'm 70 years old and for the FIRST time in my long therapy life, I feel supported, seen and heard. I have deployed the "Wise Mind" technique and my life with others has changed. I can recommend Audrey. Just don't take my appointment slot!

She has a lot of experience and does very well understanding many types of people, so our progress has been much faster than I've experienced other therapists.
