I am a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Florida with over 5 years of clinical experience. My specialty has been working with children, adolescents, and adults who have complex trauma that stem from abuse, neglect, or other life events. I have also worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, adjustment to life changes and grief/loss.
My counseling style is warm and approachable. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My therapeutic background combines cognitive-behavioral, rational-emotive and trauma-focused techniques. I am nationally certified in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR). I will use these skill to tailor your needs and develop a treatment plan that best suits your goals.
I truly believe that rapport and therapeutic relationships are extremely important for therapy to be successful, therefore we will take some time to make sure I am the right fit for you and I will never be offended if you feel you need a different approach. It takes courage to take the steps to start counseling and I will honor and respect your journey through this season of life. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to walk along side you with encouragement and support!
I look forward to working with you!
