Consultation with your medical providers will be provided, as applicable, to promote better outcomes. Children, adolescents, and adults are seen with developmental needs in mind.

My focus is working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. My passion is being a part of helping people learn better and more effective ways of communicating. Watching them communicate and work through their issues in a way they have never done before is why I enjoy couples and family therapy. I have worked with children who have difficult behaviors for several years, so I have a great understanding of the support parents need in order to cope with their child’s struggles. I also treat areas of grief, adjustments, depression, anxiety, anger, and other mental health related issues and personality disorders.

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.
