Honestly, most of the time it's not knowing where to start or where to find a "good" therapist. I speak from personal experience of being handed a directory by my insurance company and having to close my eyes and pick someone that I did not know if I would have a good therapeutic connection with, let alone like.
You may find it helpful to know that I have a lot of experience being the client in a counseling relationship and fully understand what it feels like to sit at the other end of the table. I understand that the therapeutic relationship is one of implicit trust involving the deepest hurts and concerns about your life and I view this as a privilege that I take very seriously. I understand the need to feel understood and validated. My purpose in life and my passion is helping others reach their highest potential, so they can find their purpose and joy.
My therapeutic style involves meeting my clients where they are emotionally, discussing where they would like to be and breaking down their goals into attainable steps. I will also provide you with concrete tools wherever possible and to assist you in having a plan in place for the days between sessions, always moving at your most comfortable pace. I love taking a whole-person approach to treatment, understanding that the past plays a significant role in who we are while remaining rooted in the present to co-create a better present and future for my clients.

Masters Degree, Mental Health Counseling, Nova Southeastern University
Bachelors Degree, Psychology, Florida International University
I have a master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University (2002) and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida. Since the beginning of my bachelor’s education I have been refining my skill in counseling others. I spent one year in practicum at the Sexual Assault Treatment Center working victims and non-offending family members of sexual abuse and assault prior to graduation. I then worked as a member of a trauma team for several years in Massachusetts and worked extensively with individuals who have faced significant trauma in their lives, those recovering from PTSD, and those who have had suicidal thoughts. I have had the pleasure of helping adults and teens who feel a complete lack of self esteem and was able to help them find hope and grow in confidence. I am well versed in the painful struggles of anxiety, depression, grief and loss.
