I strongly believe that our unhealthy behaviors and habits are often a result of trying to get our needs met in the best way we know how.  I aim to create a safe, judgement free space to explore these patterns while identifying healthier tools for coping with life.  Since graduating from Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts with a master’s degree in clinical psychology, I gained extensive clinical experience treating adults and adolescents with mental health and substance abuse issues in acute hospitalization, partial-hospitalization, and out-patient settings.  With a desire to be more helpful to individuals, I opened my private practice in 2013. It continued to grow since relocating to Brevard County, Florida in 2018 and becoming an EMDR trained therapist in 2022. 

I offer individual counseling to adults and adolescents struggling with unresolved trauma, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, grief/loss, relationship issues, and life transitions.  I use a psycho-dynamic approach to explore thoughts, feelings, and behavioral patterns while incorporating holistic tools, such as cognitive behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapies, EMDR, mindfulness meditation, and stress management.


I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor Intern who specializes in working with children, teens, and adults experiencing social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.  My approach is to serve client needs through a holistic and client centered approach that fosters hope and recovery.  I individualize treatment to provide clients with care and support to find resolutions to a wide range of personal concerns and psychological issues, utilizing evidenced-based treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused behavior therapy, play therapy, EMDR, and EFT (tapping).  With compassion and understanding, I am devoted to my clients to help them effectively navigate their healing process, promote overall well-being, and achieve the resilience they desire.


I am certified as an Infant Toddler Developmental Specialist (ITDS), and in play therapy and sand therapy.  I am an EMDR trained clinician and I've completed specialized trainings in EMDR and Hypnotherapy.

I have a passion for partnering with clients to achieve the peace and security they desire through healing, unblocking and rewiring trauma, lingering negative emotions and limiting beliefs. This goes beyond learning coping mechanisms and reducing symptoms; healing in this way frees up my clients for the relationships and success they desire.


With master’s degrees in professional counseling, business and education, I offer unique insights into spiritual, personal and professional development. I am also a master practitioner of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), NLP Coaching, and Time Line Therapy®. 


After coaching for many years, I became a Florida Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in 2018. I look forward to supporting you towards making your desired outcomes become a reality.
