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.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Jacksonville, FL provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Jacksonville build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
