About me

Hi, I am a licensed clinical social worker in Florida with over 15 years experience working as a social worker and counselor . I have worked with clients, as well as some of their families, with a wide range of needs including depression, anxiety, parenting concerns, cancer diagnoses, and Lack of self love. I have also helped many people with grief and loss concerns, as well as those who have experienced trauma. I also am knowledgeable on medical concerns as well as body wellness due to working in the hospital, for hospice, and in a fitness center. I also participate in some holistic practices such as essential oils and am a Reiki Master.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and non judgmental. I believe that when someone is in need of help, I want to partner with them to problem solve, and develop the most appropriate plan of action, and have the best outcome possible. My approach is based on your needs and can range from mindfulness therapy, cognitive behavioral, solution focused, holistic, or trauma focused to name a few.

I look forward to being on the journey with you to support, empower, and celebrate you.
