Ultreya means Onward in Spanish. This sentiment is perfect for a mental health counselor, because our goals are about helping clients progress onward in their lives and to not let the past dictate their present or future. My intention with my practice is to help clients navigate their lives in a way that they become more self-aware and happy with the individual that they are, rather than who they think they should be based on the world around them.

In my ideal client, I see someone brave, navigating the complexities of their inner world with courage. They're facing challenges like anxiety or past traumas, yet they're here, seeking a path towards healing and growth. They crave a safe haven to share their struggles, to unravel the knots in their mind, and to discover tools for resilience. Their goal is simple yet profound: to reclaim their peace, to nurture healthier connections, and to find fulfillment in their journey. They yearn to break free from the shadows of their past and to embrace a brighter, more authentic future. And in reaching out for therapy, they're taking a prof

Outwardly, you seem to have it all together. You’re living the perfect life… on paper. On the inside, it feels like you’re just keeping your head above water. Days are lackluster and monotonous, like someone muted all the colors of life. Yet the painful emotions are vibrant as ever, and are starting to feel overwhelming: anxiety, loneliness, shame. Gnawing emptiness. You try to distract yourself, but it’s getting harder. The critical voice in your head is growing more insistent. You can’t talk about it because you’re the one people go to with their problems. You know something has to change, but you don’t know how or where to start.

I am a licensed psychotherapist in Florida and Virginia. Are you struggling to understand why life has become so difficult? Are you trying to navigate feelings of shame, unworthiness, sadness, depression alone? Does your heart feel weighed down by an ache that you can’t quite put into words? Even worse, the people in your life that you love and care about have no idea how much pain you are in? People tell you to “get over it” and that everyone “has bad days”. It doesn’t have to be this way. You feel your emotions on a deep, intense level that no one else seems to understand? Help and healing are closer than you think.

When life gets overwhelming, it can feel like you are stuck, facing an endless cycle that you wish could change. Experiencing gridlock in your own life or in a relationship can be stressful, frustrating and lonely. Sometimes in the moment, it can seem easier to ignore/avoid the issues that are challenging you until you are faced with them again; and other times you can’t stop thinking about your challenges. It can also be difficult or painful to tolerate watching your loved ones struggle, or make decisions you think are not in their best interest. Over time these stressors can cause you to experience negative thoughts and feelings.

As an attachment-oriented Licensed Professional Counselor, I specialize in working with individuals struggling with high-functioning anxiety and couples who are stuck in cycles of miscommunication/misunderstandings. Many of the individuals I work with have a haunting sense of "imposter syndrome" in the workplace and within their relationships, feeling incompetent and insecure regardless of what they have achieved. My couples often find themselves struggling with how to communicate effectively with each other and unsure of why they continually have miscommunications over their relationship, responsibilities, and desires.
