Beginning therapy can be an anxiety provoking decision due to the vulnerable place you find yourself when seeking counseling. I create a safe and trusting space, so my clients feel free to discuss any type of concern. I believe therapy is a collaborative partnership, where great transformation can take place when one is ready. It takes courage to make that first step, but once you do, you will begin to create positive change in your life, feel better about yourself and the one’s you love. I have been helping people improve their lives and their relationships for the past 20 years. I look forward to beginning this journey with you.I am a licensed psychologist, and an experienced therapist who also works at a major university in Orlando; both seeing clients, and teaching new therapist about the practice of psychotherapy. I now have a private practice in the Lake Mary/Heathrow area. I see individuals, couples, and families dealing with a variety of issues or concerns. We will work on a plan that works best for you.I specialize in relationship and marital issues, family issues, women’s issues, GLBTQ identity and acceptance issues, trauma/abuse/self-injury recovery, eating and self-esteem issues, grief and loss, and am EMDR certified. I am bilingual and can conduct therapy in Spanish. I am also a registered supervisor with the state.
