    She is amazing! She has helped my girlfriend and I work through relationship issues and grow together emotionally. Along with helping us navigate a healthy relationship she has helped with addiction and dealing with past trauma. She is warm and welcoming and so knowledgeable about so many different issues you may be facing in your life. I would recommend her to anyone!

We will talk and confirm our appointment.  I will email the link for our session via the psychologytoday website for HIPPA approved privacy.

I graduated from Florida International University Cum Laude with a Masters Degree in Social Work and have a Certification as a Substance Abuse Professional from Nova Southeastern University. My vast experience in the field of addiction and mental health and worked extensively as a counselor, therapist in both large public and private institutions as well as private practice.  I have advocated for support through the judicial system of the State of Florida courts, and am available as an expert witness.


How did you get started in this business?

I had a life changing event.  I went back to school to become at therapist.


What types of customers have you worked with?

Life is happening now and it's not easy to enjoy the “now” when you are struggling with the past, resulting in feelings of sadness or depression - or struggling thoughts of the future creating feelings of anxiety or fear.  Seeing a professional therapist.... can help.

95% of my clients are part of the LGBTQ community.


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

 My therapeutic approach is to build upon my clients' strengths to overcome these challenges. Through a compassionate and confidential approach, our focus will be on your goals, working towards making meaningful life changes. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Technology is changing our world and the way technology is shaping the work of counseling psychology is no different. Some therapists and clients can efficiently and effectively communicate in a way that allows the therapeutic work to be done. This can be a way to avoid commuting to a therapist’s office for each appointment and allow speaking with someone from the privacy and comfort of home or office.
