Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern
No matter what your situation is right now, you’re feeling pain, frustration, or feeling completely overwhelmed. Maybe you feel completely stuck and confused about where to go. Maybe you’ve been struggling for a long time and you just don’t want to feel this way anymore. That’s why you’re here, and I’m here for you. I will make you feel comfortable, safe, and cared for as we work together to make the changes you desire.
If you’ve never been to counseling before, I know it can seem daunting. But taking this first step of finding help speaks volumes to the strength you already have. I am committed to meeting you where you are at and following your lead. It is my passion to help you achieve your goals and make changes in your life—whatever they may be. I will guide and support you throughout the process, and most importantly, I mold my techniques to fit with each individual person. When working with me, you will experience my warmth, humor, and genuine compassion and empathy in every one of our sessions together.
I graduated with a master’s degree in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling from the University of South Florida, as well as a graduate certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy. Though I have worked with all ages and types of trauma, my specialty is working with adolescents and their parents to help them better understand and connect with their children. My techniques are person-centered, CBT oriented, and intended to create a safe space for healing. In our work together, I will help you realize your current strengths and utilize them to achieve your goals.
The nonjudgmental, therapeutic environment is a powerful thing, and it would be a pleasure to work with you or your teen and provide the experience of feeling empowered and accepted. Remember that you and your family are worth investing in, and it is never too late to ask for help.
