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 have been working with Taaka on and off for about a year. She is amazing. She is great at helping me work through and understand where my issues are coming from and allows me to express myself. She has helped me through my divorce, helped me in my relationship with my children, and my self esteem and confidence.
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.
She is phenomenal and listens to the heart of the individual... I am grateful for her
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.
