Florida is quite the state to talk about. It’s a beautiful state where the sun always shines and there is an adventure around every corner. It’s home to some vast beaches and Disney World, the happiest place on earth. 

However, sometimes you aren’t the happiest person on earth, and no amount of fun seems to change that. That’s when your counselor comes in. A counselor can make your mental health shine like the sun again, and you’ll be as happy as Mickey Mouse waving at the guests at Disney World.

I truly believe that a life of eudaemonia is attainable to anyone who wants to flourish. Eudaemonia is a noun of Greek origin that translates into ‘human flourishing’, ‘a contented state of being happy, healthy and prosperous’. During the past 16 years of providing counseling services to children, adolescents, young adults, adults, professionals and families, in individual, couple, family or group settings, I have encountered people who wanted to stop feeling their negative symptom, whether internal (feeling), or external (behavior).

I approach counseling the same as I do in life: take time to understand, empathize, and strengthen connections. Forget what's going on in the world right now - we have a lot going on in our lives and in our relationships. I believe that I can help to untangle the mess and leave you with a deeper understanding of yourself.
