Life is sometimes messy and confusing. Experiences and painful memories weave through aspects of our lives and can be overwhelming and unbearable for anyone. Even when problems aren’t so big, and it would be helpful to talk to someone, I am available to listen, empower, and support your growth.
I take pride in providing accessible, quality comprehensive collaborative mental health services to improve the quality of life of clients. I am dedicated to working with and supporting those in the community through their journey to positive mental health. I provide integrative and evidenced-based services to children, adolescents, adults, families, couples, and groups. I am passionate about helping others overcome traumatic experiences, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship struggles, family transitions, and parenting dilemmas.
I graduated from the University of Central Florida earning a Master of Social Work and have training in play therapy, EMDR, cognitive-behavioral, and trauma focused modalities. Outside of private practice, I have worked as a therapist in public schools, inpatient, and partial hospitalization settings, working with a variety of clients with diverse backgrounds and a wide range of concerns.
