About me

I am a mental health counselor licensed in Florida with over 7 years of experience. I have worked with a diverse population including children, adults, geriatrics, foster care, low socioeconomic levels, LGBTQ community, and supporting others with varying disabilities. My counseling style is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered, and goal oriented therapy however I believe in utilizing a variety of treatment modalities to best meet the client's need.
Reaching out for assistance can be a difficult step to take to initiate a positive change in your life. I am glad you have decided to do so. As a therapist, I would like to assist you in drawing on your personal strengths to help yourself achieve your goals. I would also like for you to express your thoughts and feelings knowing that you will be treated with dignity, respect and without judgment.
