Through the therapeutic relationship, I facilitate closer family bonds, assist troubled relationships by connecting people at a deeper intimate level, navigate teens and their parents through the teenage years by increasing communication and understanding, and guide people through the healing process when facing a divorce.
My passion is to see parents connect to the heart of their children, for teens to thrive through their teen years, for marriages to be strengthened, individuals to become strong, and for divorced families to find hope of stability, security, and love after a divorce. I have extensive experience with teens who self harm and my favorite age is middle school age kids.
I received my B.S. in Psychology from the University of Central Florida and I earned my Masters in Mental Health Therapy from Rollins College. I graduated both colleges with Magna Cum Laude honors. In addition to this formal training, I have also been trained in family mediation, parent coordination, and collaborative law. This training in marital law allows me to have an excellent understanding of the divorce process and how to best help individuals and families going through a divorce. I am also a Master Practitioner in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). ART is a specialized therapy that focuses on resolving traumas quickly and effectively, with long lasting results. In addition to these trainings, I have also been trained in four levels of Sand Tray Therapy and I am also a Florida Qualified Supervisor.
