As a licensed mental health counselor, I have over 12 years of professional experience assisting individuals to overcome the difficulties they face in life. I have experience working with children ages 4 and up, adolescents & adults. My goal as your counselor is to be a guide and mentor to help you find solutions to problems you encounter in life. My clients can expect a warm, genuine, professional relationship and are expected to play an active role in the therapeutic process. I have experience working with a wide range of issues, from trauma and loss to self esteem and behavioral problems.I have experience working with clients from a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds, as well as clients from LGBTQ+ community and faith-based backgrounds. I have also completed training for EMDR therapy (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and received extensive training in utilizing play therapy and sand tray techniques.I am a qualified supervisor for Registered Mental Health Counselor Interns through the Florida Department of Health. I look forward to the opportunity to walk with you on your journey.
