I work with children, teenagers, and young adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, life-stage transitions, relationships, self-esteem, and perfectionism.
I once read that "when we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary." Inspired by this, I aim to create a safe and comforting space for those feeling overburdened by their emotions. Together, we can navigate a way forward. I use evidence-based treatment to provide coping skills and help you rediscover the spark within yourself. I utilize a collaborative and tailored approach to meet each client’s unique needs. I am a dedicated therapist who uses evidence-based techniques, empathy, and understanding to help individuals achieve personal growth.

When the pressures of daily life create distress, there is great satisfaction in finding a solution to lower your natural instinct of fear and anxiety. The main focus of my practice is to locate the limiting beliefs from your history, to free you from the contradictions that limit your growth and confuse you in relationships. The most important goal of therapy is to raise awareness regarding your natural inclination to react to negativity. When you are well anchored on the inside you will not emotionally react to an external challenge or threat.

You may be feeling stressed because of changes happening in your life. At night you replay (multiple times!?!?) all that happened that day, and wonder if you said or did the right thing. This has you feeling exhausted, sad, lonely, or worried, and you realize you have nothing left in your tank. You want to feel better, but you’re unsure where to start. You’ve come to the right place. Together we will pinpoint how the past and present are stopping you from reaching your goals. I bring over two decades of experience and will help you clarify issues and assist you in developing a path to greater life satisfaction.

This leads to more connection and understanding of themselves and others. As a parenting and play therapist specialist, I work with children of divorce, anger, tantrums, trauma, sibling rivalry, anxiety, depression, academic difficulties, and self esteem issues.

When children are struggling, their grown-ups suffer.
We provide play therapy at 3 locations in Jacksonville: Neptune Beach, Riverside, and Ponte Vedra Beach. Children have a limited verbal ability to communicate how they think and feel about the world. Young children (ages 2-12) most naturally process and share emotionally significant experiences though play. Play is their language. At The Healing Playroom, Registered Play Therapists use the child's most natural form of communication, instead of asking them to use ours. Play Therapy is a respectful, effective, and developmentally appropriate way to help young children who are experiencing social, emotional, or behavioral problems.

My experience working with many children, adolescents, and families in crisis along with my focus on spiritual development uniquely qualifies me to work with individuals that are seeking emotional as well as spiritual healing.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and devout Catholic. It is my dream to incorporate my faith in a direct way through my work with clients. Although I am passionate about my faith and combining it in practice, my goal is to allow the client to dictate where they are in the spiritual and emotional journey. The most successful therapy takes place when clients are able to be vulnerable, and express their needs honestly in treatment. I specialize in working with adolescents; however, I also work with children, adults and families. My background involves work with trauma, family issues, anxiety, depression, and attachment.

Serving my country and the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard is one of the greatest honors and privileges of my life.
