About Me

Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker in Florida. Born in Kentucky and raised in New York, I have experienced a lot of challenges in the African American community as it relates to trauma, disguised anxiety/depression and manifesting into anger and seclusion. I have also witnessed and assisted adolescents and adults struggling with their sexual orientation. My passion is assisting clients gain self-acceptance, sustain intimate relationships and regain confidence. I have a business background and understand women issues with regard to transitioning into leadership positions. If you require coaching in this area, I am very skilled and experienced.

My speciality is working with intimate partners, at risk adolescents and the LGBTQ community. My plan of action is to use Person-Centered interventions, Positive Psychology, Cognitive Behavioral Techniques (CBT), Solution Focused techniques and the Gottman Method with intimate partners.
If you believe you fit the mold for anything I mentioned above, believe the techniques can conquer your barrier, and you are ready to live your "Best Life" make sure to contact me. If you work with me I guarantee you will gain self-confidence, acceptance and pure love for self.

Wishing you the Best and I look forward to working with you.

Hollie is very warm and open. I’ve enjoyed opening up to her in a non judgmental space and made lots of positive steps forward. Thanks Hollie.

Hollie was a great listener who allowed me to talk my way to solutions while guiding me to the finish. Very personable and great about responding to messages sent outside of scheduled session times. Can’t thank her enough.

Written by M.I. on Aug 21, 2020 after counseling with Hollie for 7 months on issues concerning addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, anger management, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

I have been in counseling since I was young (Being a neurotic Jewish boy from Queens, counseling was almost a given. I think it was a gift at my Bar Mitzvah, ha). One of the many challenges I experienced was working with therapists/counselors who did not truly understand me. Coming from where I am from, their are significant environmental and emotional challenges. I have not had the experience with a therapist or a counselor who was able to identify my issues from a clinical perspective and from where I am from. Hollie was a gift from a Higher Power. in 2020, I was at a real low point, including not having a great deal of $$ to pay for therapy. I do know that if I am not in regular sessions, that I will continue to stunt my own emotional growth. Hollie understood my challenges, because she was able to funnel down through where I grew up to what my issues are today. She knew that because she was from where I was from, that even us being total opposites, she could dial into my issues from not only a cultural place, but a clinical one. The coolest thing (Yes I mean coolest) thing is that Hollie and I can talk about my issues as it relates directly to how we both came up. She completely understands what it was like for me to be a young man in NYC in the 80's and how it directly relates to my challenges today. I feel so blessed to have Hollie in my life and my hope is that if you are reading this you will be so blessed to have her in yours as well. Thank you Hollie, for taking what you grew up with, what you learned in clinical study and applying it to helping me be the best version of myself.

Hollie is amazing. She gauges my mood and provides suggestions accordingly! Couldn’t have asked for a better therapist. She listens, she’s patient, she’s understanding and she’s very compassionate.

Hollie was an excellent support during a very difficult time in my life. Her ability to guide me towards the goals and positive changes I wanted to make in my life were very helpful. She is easy to talk to and very funny. I can not recommend Hollie enough.

Hollie is awesome!! I am very thankful for the opportunity to work with her. I would give her 100 stars if I could. She is really relatable and understanding. She doesn’t push you pass your comfort zone but pushes for you to always be a better you and that’s exactly what I needed.

Hollie has been amazing at helping me understand and recognize who I am, who I want to be and helped me identify how I can achieve this. I can't recommend her enough!

Written by P.A. on Jan 17, 2020 after counseling with Hollie for 2 weeks on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Hollie is a great therapist. She is patient, kind, and doesn't shy away from asking difficult questions. She makes me feel comfortable about topics that are inherently very uncomfortable. I would recommend her 10 times out of 10 to a friend or family member.

Hollie is so wonderful to work with! We are just two sessions in and I feel seen, heard and understood. I also feel safe and held as she confidently and passionately leads me through this process.

She is always there for me, whenever I need her, and she is there with solid advice. She understands the root of my issues and she tries to find the best approach in dealing with my anxiety.

Hollie is great at what she does! She makes me feel great and always replied to my messages. She is a strong woman and is making me realize I can be a strong woman as well!

Written by M.A. on May 15, 2019 after counseling with Hollie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I love working with Hollie. She listens without judging, she supports, she comforts, AND, most importantly, she encourages growth. She gives me weekly assignments that always make me feel a little uncomfortable, but as I work through them, I feel my confidence rising. She tailors her assignments to me and my needs in a way that no other therapist I've worked with has before. She is a gem!

Written by T.O. on May 03, 2019 after counseling with Hollie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Great listener. She is good if you need to lift your self esteem. It's like to talking to a non-judgmental friend.

Written by A.A. on Mar 29, 2019 after counseling with Hollie for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

Hollie was a kind and responsive counselor on Betterhelp. She made an effort to be available and was compassionate to me and supportive of me and my goals. I am transitioning to in-person therapy, but if I return to Betterhelp, I would certainly request Hollie again.
