Hello there, beautiful creature of nature! Now I know, it is often said that it is unwise to “assume” but I’m a firm believer that assumptions are a necessary pre-lude to the expansion of one’s knowledge and clarity. It’s what you plan to do with that assumption but more importantly how you communicate and find supporting evidence to legitimize your findings that is essential. With that being said, I would like to assume that you have found yourself here because there is an aspect of your life that has been causing some friction or discord? Maybe there is a change you would like to implement for greater personal development? Maybe there is a relationship that you would like to improve, or not? Maybe you want to learn how to create healthy boundaries and stick to them?  You may just have a billion thoughts in your mind on a daily and you’re trying to make sense of it all. We’re all coming to realize that in today’s world and climate, it is quite the task to remain diligent and positive-minded while trying to maintain all of our compounding responsibilities, nurture our loved ones, and successfully navigate life’s trials and tribulations……how overwhelming of a mission!! Rest assured, you are not alone, dear!  I have dedicated the last decade on this journey to expanding my education and knowledge into increasing mental health services accessibility. I take great pride in providing fundamental clinical care to those in need as they aim to make significant modifications in their lives and I hope to be able to do the same for you. Think of me as your personal agent of change!!

 

When working with me, you can always expect “THE REAL”! And if you don’t know what that is, then sounds like you’re in the right place!! I am personally devoted to meeting you where you are and communicating effectively to adequately identify your goals based upon your past experiences, your current values, and your future aspirations. Once those are identified, we work together to establish a functioning treatment plan to hold you accountable to your overall growth, efforts, and eventually success!!! It is my duty and vow to uphold a safe, welcoming, genuine, and authentic service guided by evidenced-based clinical practices as well as holistic measures that include mindfulness and nutrition.

 

Practicing and serving those in the mental health field for the past six years, I possess an abundance of experience in both the community mental health and private sectors. I specialize in anxiety/depression and other mood disorders, interpersonal relationships and issues, as well as domestic violence. In addition to those specialties, I also have an extensive background in substance abuse, crisis intervention, trauma-informed care, perinatal mental health, and parenting with an emphasis on BIPOC and LGBTQ+ communities.

I am currently licensed as a Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida and I hold a Bachelor’s degree from Georgia Southern University as well as a Master’s degree from Nova Southeastern University.  I am also EMDR-trained for those who may be interested in that specific modality. If you think I may be a good fit for your needs and you’re interested in working with me, please don’t hesitate to contact me for an initial consultation. Are YOU ready to do the work towards living your absolute BEST life? I sure hope so!! And I truly hope to hear from you soon!! Toodles!!
