I currently live in Florida while earning a doctorate degree from Indiana University. My passion in life is to improve therapeutic outcomes, so individuals get the most out of their therapy experience. I like to use research based interventions to help those I work with. Some of the interventions I use include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, Psychoanalytic Therapy, Mindfulness Techniques, Narrative Therapy, and an overall person-centered approach which tailors the intervention to each individual's needs. I am kind, positive, and honest. I am talented at giving honest and direct feedback to promote individual change, while also providing unconditional support.
In my personal time I enjoy being outdoors with my family and friends. I have been married for 19 years, and my husband and I love to go boating with our three nieces as much as possible. We also enjoy camping, hiking, and going to the beach! My favorite books usually include Thrillers or True Crime Stories- anything with a surprise ending!!
I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you to address any challenges you may be dealing with, or areas that you have identified for self improvement. I realize that reaching out can be challenging at times, so I am here when you are ready.
- Stress, Anxiety
- Trauma and abuse
I also have experience in Addictions, Parenting, Anger, Self esteem, Career, Bipolar

Destinee is a brilliant psychologist with a with a wise & intelligent heart. She is able to be sensitive & compassionate while also direct & realistic when it comes to her insights & counsel. Intelligent & intuitive, she is able to see my blindspots & bring them into my awareness gently but honestly, enabling me to move past them. She is fluent in a wide range of therapy modalities including CBT & psychoanalysis among others, so she's able to help me tackle my issues in a variety of methods. On top of being highly sensitive & smart, she's also practical, non-judgmental & deeply caring. I feel I am in extremely capable hands with Destinee & I'm lucky to have such a loyal & capable counselor as I journey through my life.

I love Destinee! She’s always checking in on me when I haven’t responded in a few days, and she’s constantly recalling details from our live sessions and asks me if those factors are still impacting my mental health. Destinee also supports me in anything I decide to do, while helping me weigh the pros and cons of every situation that is impacting me.
Destinee is extremely professional, honest, and intelligent. She goes above and beyond to make me feel heard and helped. I would strongly recommend participating in counseling sessions with her!!
