I am so happy that you are here and reading my page! That means that you are contemplating the beginning of your therapeutic journey. I thoroughly believe that ANYBODY can benefit from therapy no matter what age, gender or race.
I received a Master's in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from the University of South Florida. Since that time, I gained a License in Mental Health Counseling in Florida and have become a Master's Certified Addictions Professional. Furthermore, I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I have experienced working with children, teenagers and adults. I have extensive experience working with addictions, including opiate addiction. Furthermore, with addictions comes co-occurring disorders that I have had the privilege of working with.
I believe in a person centered counseling approach where my clients are able to feel a sense of respect and autonomy. In addition, I utilize motivational interviewing skills, rational emotive behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Your goals are what are important to me and will be the foundation of our therapeutic journey together.
I understand that it can be difficult to ask for help and recognize the courage that it takes. No matter what struggle you are facing, I hope it is one that we can work on together. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
