I am pleased to be a part of Family Life Counseling Center who, provides mental health services, family therapy, marriage counseling, and premarital counseling in the Tavares, Florida and the Clermont, Florida area providing a place to work through issues privately and confide in trustworthy therapists.
My passion is to work with clients who have become overwhelmed with the pressures of life and need a compassionate and non critical perspective to help them navigate the often difficult terrain of life. While motivation is helpful I am completely comfortable with helping clients explore their own reluctance in facing the painful realities of their life. I am particularly drawn to clients who have experienced trauma, rejection, abandonment, and/or abuse. My considerable life, parenting, and professional experience has truly endeared me to clients who are simply overwhelmed and need gentle guidance to find their way.

If you could make one thing better or different in your life, what would it be? Would it be to learn healthy coping skills to better cope with anxiety or stressors? Would it be parenting skills to add to your parenting tool box? Would it be pre-marital counseling to not only receive that discount in FL for FL marriage licenses, but to learn about yourself and your partner more? Taking the first step in seeking therapy is often the most difficult, intimidating and stress inducing, and your mental health is worth it all! You are worth taking the first step in getting what you need out of therapy. This is your journey, so step out!

Do you feel broken, beaten down by life's circumstances, trapped in your current existence, or tethered to a life you never wanted? Life can be stressful and overwhelming to ​say the least. You can feel stuck in life and lose hope of ever having the life you dreamed of before the path you were on was changed. Ever feel like every time you take a step forward, life knocks you down a flight of stairs? Now not only do you have to get back up, but the next step forward is uphill! You may be experiencing difficulty adjusting to the changes in your life. This can be exhausting and very tempting to give up on those dreams you had.

I believe in order to make a positive change you must be empowered to create the change you desire. Many times I see clients struggle because situations have happened to them and they identify with the hurt that has been caused. In order for growth to occur individuals need to be in charge of their own life’s circumstances. As a therapist my purpose is to guide my clients toward the goals they seek in order to manage their lives effectively.

Hello! I have been working with children, adolescents and families for more than 10 years. I work well with Oppositional Defiance, Aggression, Behavioral Issues and Conflict Resolution. I have heard many times from my clients that I am "not like other therapists" and I have a way of interacting with pre-teens and teenagers so that they feel validated and heard. I have a passion for understanding others and those around me in a way that they feel comfortable. The relationship between therapist and client should be unique and creative.

"Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it"-Mary Oliver. Finding a therapist you feel comfortable telling about your life, obstacles you may be facing, or areas where you desire to change can feel daunting. I strive to build a collaborative relationship with you/your child to understand your struggles, help you gain insight about issues that may be beyond your awareness, and provide you with tools and skills that will help you/your child manage emotions, and work through life’s challenges. My approach is integrative and flexible, with the use of strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy.
