About

Hello and Welcome! I have seven years of experience in the mental health field in the state of FL. While, I have worked with clients of all ages, my primary work is with adults, especially from the 20s - 40s age range. My specialty is working with individuals who specifically struggle with general anxiety, social anxiety, low self esteem, relationship issues, life transitions and other everyday issues. I have training in cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), and solution focused approaches. I understand that each person has their own unique situations, so I value giving each person individual plans of action to address their issues.
My goal is for you to feel free to express yourself. My counseling style is pretty laid back. I have been described as supportive, caring, and compassionate with a pretty good sense of humor. I like to focus on identifying your strengths and helping you to maximize them to overcome your obstacles.
Sometimes it can be hard to reach out for help on addressing personal issues, especially with someone you don't know. However, I am here to meet you where you are and guide you in this process. I provide online appointments (telehealth) at this time.
