I am here to help foster hope on your journey. My goal is to create a respectful and enriching environment that can help you or your family increase insight, communication, or identify positive coping skills to meet life's challenges. I am a client-centered counselor who believes a non-judgmental environment helps to set the stage for healing and empowerment--whether that's navigating current life stressors, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, transitions, parenting, relationships, or more. I'm here to help.
The goal of my practice is to help restore balance in your life. I offer therapy to individual adults, children, and teens. I am not a Christian Counselor, nor affiliated with any religion, but always welcome a client's spiritual/religious beliefs in sessions.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Qualified Supervisor, National Certified Counselor (NCC), member of Florida Counseling Association, Chi Sigma Iota, American Mental Health Counselors Association, American Counseling Association. I was educated at a CACREP institution with the most rigorous standards. I am an LGBTQ+ Ally, and offer a safe space.
