My passion is to help bring healing, restoration, and transformation to my clients. I have an integrative approach using cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and mindfulness techniques to help clients learn how to transform the way they respond to daily stressors. My specialties include: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, grief, trauma, life transitions, self-esteem, and relationship issues.
I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor. I earned my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Walden University and have a bachelor’s degree in special education from the University of South Florida. I was a special education teacher for 12 years and thoroughly enjoyed teaching students with learning disabilities and behavior disorders. I am also a certified hypnotherapist and find using this modality, in conjunction with counseling, accelerates healing and transformation for my clients. I am recognized as a Nationally Certified Counselor.
