About Me

I am a New Jersey native who transplanted to Florida after learning I only wanted snow on vacations. I have a relaxed approach to therapy and believe that the client should feel comfortable with a therapist in order to discuss uncomfortable topics. I like to use humor and real world examples in therapy sessions. I am an advocate at heart and will encourage personal, professional, and relational growth. The world is a tough place, let's tackle it together.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership from UNF. My professional experience includes Case Management for Adults with long-term mental illness, specialized investigations with Department of Children and Families, residential substance abuse treatment for adolescents, University counseling, and counseling specifically for individuals with special needs. I currently own TSI Health, which I started in 2015. TSI Health provides behavioral and mental health services for children, adolescents, and families with varying emotional, behavioral, and psychological disorders within the foster care system.
