My passion for self-love, emotional independence, communication, and all areas of intimacy. I honor relationships and more importantly value the relationships we have with ourselves.
I strive to serve as a guide while supporting you with healing from past hurts, inter-generational trauma, and systematic pressures by getting to the root of your restrictive core beliefs that guide your behavior, how you see yourself, and perceive life and relationships. I provide a safe and judgment free atmosphere which allows for transparency, vulnerability, empowerment, cultural appreciation, and validation.
I have a direct and compassionate approach to therapy and truly believe clients are the masters of their own life. Its important to know that I work with you to meet your life goals, not do the work for you. My ideal client are those taking steps (even small ones) towards change and committing to doing the work and perform better in their lives.

I am a bi-racial female licensed in the state of Florida. I have been working in the mental health field for over a decade in various capacities. I started with serving the elderly population that lived with developmental disabilities in both community and institutionalized settings as a rehabilitation therapist. I transitioned into behavioral health where I assessed and developed behavioral modification and management plans for adults and children with Autism and other behavioral disorders. As I further explored my passion for people, I planted myself in Marriage, Couples, and Family therapy. My experience working with LGBTQIA+, crisis response, at risk youth, family court and mediations, substance abuse (abstinence and/or harm reduction), and domestic violence has provided me with an array of skills to best support my clients unique needs.
