"LMFT, LMHC"

Hello! I have been working in the mental health field since 2009. I have experience working with those struggling with addictions, couples therapy, and with college-aged individuals. I am licensed in the state of Florida & California. I am also certified in Yoga and EMDR. I specialize in treating depression, anxiety, relational, and family dynamic issues. While I have received training in a variety of theoretical approaches, I customize our sessions to meet your unique personality and needs. I believe strongly in creating a safe environment where you can be open and share what is on your heart and mind. Living our truth and being our authentic ourselves is something I am passionate about helping others live out. My role is to guide and support you in building the skills and confidence necessary to live your best life. My approach is both relational and practical. I begin by helping each client address their immediate challenges, developing their strengths, and helping to make the needed internal and environmental changes necessary for lasting results and healing. I want to teach you the skills needed so that you can be your own therapist. I have seen healing and transformation come from therapy so I believe that small changes can take place after each session. I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!
