I am a licensed clinical social worker in Florida with over 8 years of experience working as a therapist/counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, aging and geriatric problems, isolation/loneliness problems. I also helped many people who have experienced life purpose problems, emptiness and self-love.
My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, client-centered and solution focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards change. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
