About Me

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in private practice serving in Orlando, FL for the past 5 years. I attended Troy State University where my graduate studies focused on Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I believe mental wellness is a key component in building strong families and communities. I have worked with patients representing a wide array of cultural, socioeconomic, age, sex/gender and racial identifications. I provide individual psychotherapy to adults and teenagers who may be experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, self-doubt, or relationship difficulties. My therapeutic approach is Person Centered, drawing from Psychodynamic, Insight Oriented, Mindfulness Based - Cognitive Behavioral, and Whole Person Systems Perspectives. I place a strong focus on targeting negative thinking patterns and unhealthy behaviors. Together we will work as a team, building on your strengths as you work on improving your life and relationships to live a fuller, more satisfying life!

Written by K.A. on Oct 16, 2020 after counseling with Taaka for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and adhd

I’ve been seeing Taaka for about 7 months now. Looking back on my first session, I don’t recognize the person I was during that time in my life. With her help, I am more confident in who I am and find I struggle way less with my mental hang ups. My sessions always feel like a safe place to work through my anxiety. Taaka listens, provides feedback and helps me challenge whatever issue I’m struggling with. I always look forward to my sessions with her. She has helped me feel like myself again and there will never be enough “thank you’s” the world that truly show my gratitude.

Taaka is amazing. She has really helped break up my anxiety and the thoughts that perpetuate it. Her exercises that she sends me has been really helpful in between sessions.

Taaka is amazing. She is really empathetic and easy to talk to. She always knows what to say and always offers really useful advice. I was a wreck when I talked to Taaka for the first time. And now I really feel better, I can be myself again and I am able to start a new chapter of my life - thanks to her.

I have only been speaking with Taaka for a short amount of time but I have been very impressed with her so far. She has been extremely attentive and I feel like she is really listening to me and providing valuable insight to my issues. She has been very supportive and encouraging without leaving me to feel like she’s just saying what I want to hear. I plan on sticking with her while she helps me through this difficult period of my life.
