"Helping teens, adults, and families catalyze change as they face difficult challenges and life transitions."
You know how sometimes you get lost going to a new place? Well, I’m the kind of therapist who helps you find direction and reach your fullest potential at home, school, work, and in the community.
I can help you explore your feelings, beliefs, or behaviors and work through challenging or influential areas.
Together, we can identify aspects of your life that you would like to change or better understand. You will also be able to set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
I will create a safe, non-judgemental space where you can explore and connect with your true self so that you can experience a life full of balance and joy.
I work with teens, families, and adults in a variety of specializations.
For new and expectant mothers…
I am truly passionate about my work with new and expectant mothers. As an expecting or new mom, I personally know that you may be too tired and maybe overwhelmed with your pregnancy or your new baby to think about yourself and your mental health. You're not sure if how you are feeling is normal, but you know that you just don’t feel like yourself.
It is important for you to know that this is quite common and that you are not alone. I want you to get to feeling like yourself as quickly as possible. We will work together as a team promoting healing and recovery by focusing on existing strengths and resilience while developing new skills.
For teens and their families…
Let’s face it, being a teenager is hard! I help teens navigate whatever their adolescent issues may be whether this be self esteem, anxiety, depression, substance use, being bullied, or stress management. My objective is to help teens gain the knowledge and tools to help them reach their fullest potential in all life areas, and find solutions to life’s ups and downs of adolescence.
I work together with parents and teens, as a collaborative unit, to help create a solid foundation for change and growth. The end goal is for the teen to be able to confidently navigate the teenage years.
I truly feel pride in my work with adults. I enjoy helping adults reach their fullest potential by overcoming issues or struggles that may be challenging in their life. I have helped clients with anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationship issues, self-esteem, anger management, self-empowerment, and women’s concerns. Together we collaborate as a team to create the HAPPIEST you.
Since I can remember, I have always been that one friend that family members and friends would turn to for advice or support. I always feel my happiest and fulfilled when others create the BEST version of themselves and THRIVE. This passion generated into my profession. I truly enjoy helping people sort out their life issues or problems, so to speak, and determine solutions on resolving these issues. I enjoy feeling the human connection with others and feel that I have a special set of skills to help others.
I graduated with my Masters degree in Social Work from Florida State University in 2005. Then, I started working for an agency, Twin Oaks Community Services, as a Mental Health Counselor/ School Social Worker. I implemented therapeutic (family, group, and individual) services in the community and school settings with children between the ages of 4-18. I also worked collaboratively with school psychologist, teachers, and other school personnel.
In 2008, I started working at the Covenant House, a shelter for at-risk youth from the ages 12-21, including mothers and their children, as a Family Therapist. Some of my responsibilities included providing short-term family counseling services to eligible youth and families within the Family Services Project leading towards family reunification, implementing crisis intervention techniques, and managing the Family Services Project grant.
In 2010, Provide 4 came to life with a goal of providing therapeutic services to the general population with an array of presenting concerns or problems. I became certified as Dialectical Behavior Therapist (DBT) and this is my primary modality used in therapy.
After becoming a mother of two children and realizing the lack of perinatal mental health resources for families, I decided to switch gears and take a certification course in Perinatal Mental Health through Postpartum Support International and 2020 Mom.
My passion continues to be teens and mamas. My professional affiliations include National Association of Social Workers, The American Counseling Association, the American Psychotherapy Association, the National Association of Professional Women, and Postpartum Support International.
Just For Fun
I am an avid fitness lover. I love crossfit and entering into local competitions. I’m also game for any Spartan race. But my absolute favorite thing to do when I'm not working is spending time with my family.
Why Work with Me?
I believe “feeling a connection” with a therapist is one of the most important factors when determining the right therapist. You can expect confidential consultation and counseling, a respectful and non-judgmental attitude, candid guidance and support, and active listening, encouragement, and motivation from me.
The thing I love about being a therapist is observing the change and growth of an individual. Planting a seed and watching it grow; as some people say. This makes me passionate about providing mental health services to the best of my ability and helping people grow to their fullest potential.
I leave you with this, a quote by Alexander Graham Bell, “When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.”
