I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in FL, GA, TN, TX, RI, IN, WA, NM and UT specializing in helping individuals navigate anxiety, stress, depression, grief/loss and life transitions. I provide individual therapy sessions online. I take a holistic approach to therapy using traditional psychotherapy techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. In 2001 I completed a Masters Degree in Clinical Social Work (MSW) from Florida State University and received my license in 2004.
I have worked in a variety of settings including hospitals, hospice programs, schools, and as an independent contractor providing tele-mental health counseling services to individuals who are experiencing varying levels of challenges due to chronic medical conditions, life situations, and/or mental health concerns.
I enjoy helping people work through the challenges of today's world as we take the journey together to get you to where you want to be in your life.
