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!

I feel very safe with her. She's a very good reflective listener and expresses a true interest in what I'm saying.

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.
