About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida (LMHC) and a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) with over 10 years of experience in the counseling field . I have worked with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief, career challenges, OCD, anger management and aging issues. I also helped many people who have experienced parenting issues, physical trauma and/or emotional abuse.
As a counselor, I strive to provide a counseling experience in which my clients feel heard and understood. My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and solution focused therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific goals.
Life is a wonderful journey but we all experience hurdles and struggles that can be difficult to overcome or change. If you are experiencing difficulty adjusting or overcoming some of your life's struggles, I would welcome the opportunity to be your counselor and assist you in your journey.

Written on Sep 27, 2022 after therapy with Rhonda for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, eating disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and compassion fatigue

I met Rhonda right before I was about to have the most difficult time in my life I’ve ever experienced. We connected instantly and she and I have bonded. She’s seen me at my darkest moments and I am so relieved I had her. She has given me support, knowledge, advice, numerous different articles, and homework to better help me with my journey. I am so happy I joined BetterHelp and finally went to therapy. I always knew I wanted it and needed it to help with my past trauma and to genuinely just become a better person all the way around. I fully believe that people at their darkest moments and at their brightest should always keep therapy in mind. It’s such a healthy way to learn to help yourself gain tools to cope through life.

I have been working with Rhonda for nearly a year now, and I can't say enough good things about her. She is so incredibly kind, patient, and attentive. She is able to remember small details from months prior and tie it back in to current situations. Amidst a difficult relationship, she has worked to help me regain my assertiveness and individuality. Rhonda has always been willing to work with me to make sure that she can support me in the best way possible. I am so very grateful for her, and I always look forward to chatting with her.

(the first question i accidentally answered strongly disagree but i meant strongly agree!)

rhonda is absolutely wonderful and has helped me make enormous strides in feeling better balanced and able to regulate my anxiety and emotions. she remembers little details and integrates all of the information i throw at her every week in a really digestible way that helps me to parse through everything that feels so jumbled in my mind in a very clear manner. in the few months i’ve been working with her i’ve noticed my relationships are already much healthier.

I have been in therapy many times over the course of 20 years for a variety of reasons - but I am absolutely blown away by my experience with Rhonda thus far! She is kind, patient, compassionate, and so empowering! I love that she is the one who will be walking rt beside me through this journey.

Written on Jan 25, 2022 after therapy with Rhonda for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coaching, and adhd

Over the past 22 years I have encountered numerous psychiatrists, nurse practioners, counselors, therapists & psychologists... Rhonda is by far the best I have talked with. I have educated myself significantly throughout my journey of maintaining stability while enduring the struggles of a mental disorder.
She doesn't listen to respond with generic phrases or try to change your thoughts & feelings. She is attentive to everything you share, provides wisdom & guidance with knowledgeable information, resources & tools. Rhonda has an energy about her that automatically has you feeling comfortable during the 1st session. She asks, " What do you need from me? What can I do for you?" That is something that has always been missing. The first time she asked me, it took me back a little bit & had to think for a moment what I really needed. It's always been someone telling me what they thought I needed and that never worked out in my favor.
Rhonda and I have a great connection and I only hope others will have the same opportunity as I have with her.. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way.
Thank you Rhonda!
