About me

I have 16 years of post-graduate professional clinical social work experience. I have been licensed as a Clinical Social Worker in Florida for over 7 years. I am passionate about providing support to not only my clients but to fellow social workers, which is why I am also certified in providing supervision to social workers who wish to obtain a license. I want to congratulate you on the first step in this journey and hopefully you will choose me to support you in it. I have experience in helping adolescent and adult clients with various issues including but not limited to life transitions, coping with addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, and anger management.

My therapy style is grounded in motivational interviewing and solution focused therapy. These modalities support my core belief that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. I appreciate you sharing that story with me, and we will work together to identify how to use your strengths and get them to show up for you when you need it the most. I have experience in trauma informed care, cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, task centered practice, bibliotherapy, family systems therapy, gestalt therapy, and client centered therapy. I will tailor interventions based on your needs and goals for treatment.

It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support and empower you in that journey.
