I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I value family units and children and adolescents being provided an environment in which they are able to thrive as individuals. Historically, I've worked with adolescents who were in the foster care system needing psychoeducational independent living skills to better be equipt as an adult to contribute to society and able to navigate through the world. Also, providing individuals tools to navigate through life crisis is very important to assist in being functional and having coping mechanism help go through the crisis.
I believe in empowering the individual with skills/coping mechanisms to aid them in crisis and helping them to be able to function day to day.
I want to provide a safe place where individuals can gain insight and grow.
