I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker from Florida and have 5 years if Clinical Experience. During the past 5 years I have worked in the dependency system helping families rebuild themselves and children of all ages heal their wounds. During most of my career I have focused predominantly in trauma focus worked within family systems and individuals as well as building self esteem. In my career I have also worked within the LGBTQ + community in various aspects including transitioning and have been trained in kink awareness. While working in a hospital setting I also assisted with chronic illness and coping with death and loss.
When working with my clients my focus is the individual needs and goals and how I can assist that person in attaining those goals utilizing Solution Focused therapy as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Recently I have been introduced to Superhero Therapy and utilizing fandom in order to help client's slay the monsters or obstacles in their lives. I am a clinician that enjoys utilizing creativity and expressive arts to help clients reach the goals they have for themselves as well as helping them be the version of themselves that they love the most. Along the way I also incorporate Mindfulness Therapy into practice to help with the mindbody connection.
