Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read my intro. I am a licensed therapist who specializes in mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, adjustment, thinking disorders, etc., and I am also trained in family and relationship needs as well. I picked a specialty in marriage and family therapy because I genuinely believe that societal, family, and cultural conditions deeply influence the way we think, feel, act, and react to day-to-day interactions—which is the foundation of MFT’s systemic perspective. Additionally, during my time as an intern, I chose to be supervised under a clinical psychologist (Ph. D), a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) to learn various perspectives, skills, and resources in mental health.
I am a true advocate for optimal wellness. I have experience working with the Department of Juvenile Justice, family court, school systems, private practices, and community agencies, and I am a member of both the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and Florida Family Therapy Alliance (FFTA). I am proud to be both LGBTQA+ and Autism allied. In my experience working with people with diverse backgrounds, I focus on helping all clients feel safe, welcomed, and respected.
As your mental wellness partner, I commit to provide you and your partner with support and encouragement throughout your journey. I try my best to stay easily accessible, while providing both a safe environment and essential feedback to you both. I look forward to working with you!
