Welcome! I'm glad that you're here! Do you wish that you had more peace in your life? Do you struggle with depression, anxiety or past trauma? If so, I can help. When experiencing challenges people need to be heard, validated, supported, empowered, and encouraged. Therapy can be the supportive space needed for you to not only explore the root of your feelings and experiences, but also to brainstorm what next steps you can take to gain insight, work through challenges, and foster a meaningful, fulfilling, and joyful life. Whether for you, your child, or adolescent , my focus is to meet you where you are and to listen.

Making the initial decision to seek professional help for you or your loved one can be intimidating. I’m the therapist for people that “don’t like therapy”. Many of the people I see are new to therapy, "didn't believe in it" or have had negative experiences with therapy in the past. They come in with doubts, questions and fears. I believe that everyone that walks through my door deserves respect. My ultimate goal is to create a safe place to explore the messiness of life in a comfortable, laid-back and non-judgmental space. Life can be difficult, but you don’t have to figure it out alone. You are welcome here.

The scope of my therapy practice is based on the belief that children are growing, developing individuals who at times need assistance beyond their families and school structures to develop emotional and social skills, self confidence, and coping skills to handle stressors. Children are often more open than adults to change and I absolutely love getting to see them transform and grow. I work with children and adolescents ages 4 to 18.

PsyD, MA, MS, CPC-I, LAC
The four main areas I coach/counsel people in are: depression/anxiety management, anger management, career/business growth, relationship/marital challenges, and personal development. I am dedicated to helping people solve relationship and anger problems associated with disrespect, insecurities, bad attitudes, and guilt through spiritual non-judgmental conversation! Our hidden, underlying beliefs often keep us from experiencing the full richness of life. I use a combination of objective assessment tools, dialogues and cognitive behavioral exercises to help you achieve your dreams.

I work with men and women who struggle in their day to day lives to find joy and peace within their lives. So often we spent our time trying to be the person everyone else expects us to be and yet spend little time discovering and becoming our authentic selves. We all live in a reflective universe which will tell a story of ourselves by the world we create. Learning out true nature which is we are all worthy “NOW” and we all deserve unconditional love and respect. Isn’t it time to discover your true nature of gifts, talents and brilliance and begin to live the life you were meant to discover and enjoy? Take time to invest in self!

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Gulfport and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
