I’m a Licensed Mental Health Therapist, My education in regard to this discipline of work was acquired from Palm Beach Atlantic University where I received a Master’s Degree in Science with a focus on Mental Health . For the past 10 years I’ve worked in a variety of settings where I have been utilizing the clinical and practical skills acquired from my education and experience over the years. Some of this work includes kids and adolescents (Teens), Department of Children and Families (DCF), Community Based Agencies, and the school district of Palm Beach County.
I take great pride in my work with kids, teens and young adults as they navigate life’s challenges that are unavoidable, given the variety of presented developmental stages and phases during this time of their lives. My aim is to assist them along their journey of discovery as they embrace their sense of self, purpose, and position themselves to achieve their maximum potential.
I specialized in working with kids and teens along with their families and other systems to help decrease the presentation and in many cases, mitigate symptoms of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, social and self-awareness, a lack of assertiveness skills, healthy relationship building, academic/career goals, as well as the reduction of social and environmental stressors.
