I earned my Master’s degree from Hodges University, Naples, FL, in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Have extensive experience in case management working with individuals and families, where I specialized with relationship issues, depression, grief, various behavioral issues, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and provided community services assistance and counseling for individuals and families involving domestic violence situations.
I began my Private Practice in 2014. Currently, I am facilitating the Divorced and Separated ministry at St Agnes Catholic Church in Florida.
My counseling philosophy encompasses a concentration on addressing clients’ needs by assisting them through their journey in life using empowerment and solution focused approaches.
My technique as a counselor is individualized, integrative, and compassionate. I strive to create a deeply caring, nonjudgmental atmosphere where a person can express himself or herself and feel supported. I believe that each person has a desire to lead a life of authenticity and meaning. I see each person as unique with individual goals based on their life style and desires.
Counseling is a collaborative effort and your confidentiality is extremely important to me.
