About me

I have been working in the mental health field for over 8 years working with clients through a variety of issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, intimacy, mood disorders, and impulsiveness.

I use a positive and nonjudgmental approach in my counseling and I strongly believe in the importance of accepting who we truly are to find a sense of peace. Where one person sees a weakness, I see a strength that has not been polished yet. I would love to be the person who laughs and cries with you as we explore your life and other areas you want to discuss.

My therapeutic approaches are very eclectic and will largely depend on the reasons you wish to speak with a therapist as well as how it matches with your personality. My main approaches in counseling include DBT, CBT, Solution-Focused Counseling, Gestalt, and Person-Centered.

Why I might be the right therapist for you: I meet you where you are at emotionally, but I will provide gentle nudges to help you continue to flourish in life. I am not on BetterHelp to make money. I am currently one of two mental health educators in the state of Florida (teaching therapists how to do therapy in prison); I am on BetterHelp because I love therapy and I am unable to do therapy in my current position. I will not have a full caseload as some other therapists will have on here, giving me more time to put my energy into the select few clients I work with. I have a broad history of working in different populations such as teens (most of my experience has been working with juvenile males, but I have also worked with females regarding depression and anxiety), kiddos, adults in the community and incarcerated, sexual disorders, and adults in inpatient treatment. If you think it, I've probably already heard it or seen it, meaning I won't have any judgment toward you and your thoughts/behaviors.

My goal is to work myself out of a job, meaning I want you to feel better. If you're willing to put the work in, so am I.
