Life can be amusing, heartbreaking, curious, and fascinating. Even exciting and positive change may evoke unprecedented or confusing emotions. By exploring patterns, reactions, and personal narratives together, we can identify specific aspects of behaviors and thoughts to acknowledge and change.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I use a Cognitive Behavioral Theoretical approach while keeping family systems in mind. I completed my master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, with a concentration in addictions counseling. My background includes a wide range of clients - women in residential substance abuse treatment, families in the foster care system, as well as couples communication coaching. I also have experience working in a community clinic setting, in which I was able to see individual clients dealing with a variety of life, family, and personal stressors. I spent several years working in elementary school settings, which helped me gain new perspectives by way of collaborating with parents, teachers, and support service providers.
Through these counseling experiences with such a wide variety of clients, I have developed techniques to help clients to cope with phase of life problems, trauma, family stressors, addictions, anxiety, depression, autism spectrum disorders, and hyperactivity and attention deficits.
In my life outside of providing counseling services, I like to spend time with my fiancée doing yoga, going on hikes, and stocking up on goods at local markets. We also love to travel to visit family and friends near and far.
Overall, my hope is to help you feel supported and empowered. I look forward to joining you in your journey!
