About me

Hi! My name is Manuela and I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida. I am passionate about helping individuals unpack and work through some of the things that keep them stuck in negative cycles.

Sometimes it feels like you are making progress but then take a few steps back. While this is part of our growth, it can bring feelings of frustration, irritability, guilt, shame, and other emotions accompanied with the belief that things will never change or that you can’t change.​ This sometimes will lead to depression and just a general dissatisfaction with life. You feel like you’ve lost your spark.

​Let’s dig deep, and unpack the stories you are telling yourself about yourself and about others. Let’s work on getting you to a place where you can see things clearly and are able to own your emotions…not let them own you.

​This stuff can be so hard! Some of us live our lives carrying hurt and pain that we have never shared with another person. Or perhaps you tried to share it and were minimized or dismissed. That hurt won’t heal if you keep it all inside and never confront it. We cannot heal what remains hidden.

​I am also able to integrate faith in our work together if this is something you would like. When utilizing a faith-based approach, I combine psychological perspectives with wisdom found throughout Scripture only when it is relevant and appropriate to your circumstance.

Reaching out for help takes so much courage and vulnerability, and it can be really scary. I want you to know that when we work together, I will do everything in my power to create a sense of safety and trust so that you feel comfortable bringing all of your "stuff" to our sessions. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. Let’s work on figuring out those hard places where you seem to get stuck and tackle those together.

I look forward to working with you!

Manuela has been absolutely amazing! She has really helped me sort through a lot of the emotions I’ve experienced in my post-partum journey and has guided me through some tough situations when I really needed a listening ear. I’m so grateful for her and her expertise!

I have only participated in two sessions with her and feel so much better. She talks through my feelings, helps me realize points of view that I haven't thought of, and helps ground me when I start disassociating. She's truly a great therapist.

Manuela has been excellent at reflecting back to me what she is observing and is then able to be encouraging in helpful ways. She is easy to connect with, very present and natural. I would highly recommend this therapist.

To say that Manuela has been a huge blessing in my life is an understatement. I'm grateful I was paired with her because her listening ear, encouragement, practical tools, and calm demeanor has helped to bring so much peace back into my life. I have been gaining knowledge about myself, learning how to healthily handle my emotions and reactions to others in my life, and I'm working toward becoming the best version of myself. Her encouragement in our shared faith has also helped me remember who I am in Christ and how to focus on keeping HIs peace and joy in my heart. I would highly, highly recommend Manuela to anyone struggling with relationship struggles. I'm closer with the people most important to me because she has helped me learn how to communicate in a healthy way and how to release what is out of my control. 10/10
