About

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Sex Therapist in Florida, and have worked in social services for over 20 years serving populations such as: at-risk youth, domestic violence survivors, couples, first responders, and veterans. In my private practice, I use mostly mindfulness and cognitive behavioral approaches including EMDR to treat Post Traumatic Stress, anxiety, sexual functioning, and relational problems. I am also a Certified Daring Way Facilitator. This is an intervention that aims to help people around concerns connected to vulnerability, shame, and courage.
Areas of Focus: Self-worth, Veteran's concerns, Anxiety, Coping skills, Mindfulness, Relationship concerns, Sexual functioning, Post-Traumatic Stress, Shame resilience, Self-compassion. Sexual abuse or trauma
Our office manager is available for questions and scheduling Monday through Thursday from 9:30AM - 2:30PM.
