I often say to my new clients that it takes a lot of courage to reach out to a me and begin their therapy journey. People begin psychotherapy because they are in emotional pain, they feel confused, lost, out of control even. When you finally make the decision to contact a therapist and schedule your first appointment, you are beginning to regain some control over your life and that is the first step in the right direction. I am proud of you for starting your journey by researching a clinician you feel you will be able to trust.

My main specialties are: relationships (couples, family), depression, anxiety, PTSD (sexual trauma, first responders, military personnel ); grief therapy, and working with the LGBT community (particularly gender dysphoria). In my work, I use scientifically based approaches like EMDR for trauma, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Theories.

I am compassionate and straightforward and I believe therapy should be a collaborative relationship between the clinician and the client. I provide in person and online psychotherapy. Lastly, I am an approved supervisor for clinical social workers in the state of Florida and love to work with interns.
