I knew I wanted to be a therapist from a young age, as I am naturally empathic and was always the friend people would turn to. It has always been, and still is, very gratifying for me to be there for someone in need and see their positive transformation. With the goal of becoming a therapist, I received my BA in Psychology and my Master of Social Work. To receive licensure in Florida, I completed over 1500 hours of direct clinical work with clients and at least 100 hours of supervision. With a passion for helping people in a more holistic approach, I was motivated to earn my certification as an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. I specialize in working with adults and seniors with self-esteem issues, emotional eating issues, trauma issues, drug addiction/recovery issues, and co-occurring mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety.
My focus is on you and what you want to get out of therapy. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental, and empathic space where you can explore your own thoughts and feelings and feel heard and understood. I actively listen and assist you to raise awareness of conscious and unconscious processes and how they impact your relationships with yourself and others. I offer the opportunity for you to explore your concerns while learning healthy and effective ways to cope with intense feelings, resolve problems, and care for yourself. I use an eclectic mix of therapeutic approaches tailored specifically to you. Evidence shows that the quality of the client- therapist relationship plays the most important role in the ultimate outcome of your therapy. I am committed to giving you the highest quality of care that best meets your needs. I offer both in person and telehealth sessions.
