About Me

I am experienced in working with addictions, veterans, LGBTQ, couples, and adolescents in diverse populations. I specialize in life changes, relationship issues, women's issues, self esteem issues, and substance abuse. I also specialize in working with individuals and their families struggling with addiction, as this is a family disease. Recently I worked with clients with anxiety, mental health challenges, addictions, depression, trauma, and veterans with addictions and PTSD.
I served for 10 years in the United States Marine Corps and specialize in working with active and reserve members, veterans, and their families of the armed forces. If you are a veteran or active duty member having trouble reintegrating with your family, or struggling with substance abuse look no further! Help is here! I completed my undergraduate degree in Social Work at Florida Atlantic University and then went on to pursue my masters degree in Social Work at Barry University.
I work extremely hard to provide a safe environment for all of my clients where they can feel comfortable expressing themselves without worrying about being judged. I am direct and honest and hold my clients accountable for their choices and I give feedback that assists with a clients growth.
