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!

She is phenomenal and listens to the heart of the individual... I am grateful for her
Speaking with Taaka and having a safe place to discuss my mental hang ups is such a relief. Every week I look forward to my session with her. On our calls she creates a safe and comfortable environment for me and gives me the tools I need to take steps towards improving my mental health. My only regret is not starting therapy with her sooner.
She understands others struggles.
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.
Really appreciate Taaka. I've recommended her to many friends based not only on expertise but also on the great balance of professionalism and the ability to cultivate an important relationship.
Taaka is a very empathetic and understanding. I have and would recommend her and your service anytime.
Taaka is so easy to talk with. She has supported me in working through tough concepts and given me the tools to identify how my thoughts and actions informs my central beliefs.
Taaka is friendly, personable and easy to talk to. She listens carefully and shows good understanding of my problems and ways to cope with them. Her manner is caring and thoughtful. I definitely recommend 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.
