5 years of experience

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida, and a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I received my Master Degree in Clinical Mental Health in 2019 from Webster University. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology Degree in 2015 from the University of Phoenix. I received my Certification as a Clinical Trauma Professional from Evergreen in 2019. I earned a "TeleMental Health Training Certificate (THTC) through the completion of the comprehensive THTC program." I strive to constantly learn and build my therapeutic skills and knowledge to provide my clients with the most effective and evidence-based therapeutic care. I am the owner of Intake Psychotherapy & Wellness, LLC, an online private practice that focuses on the whole person by assisting clients with connecting the dots to the intricate parts of themselves and find the balance, happiness, and wellness they desire. I work with ages 19 and up and provide tele-therapy services to all of Florida. My speciality includes treatment of childhood trauma and other past or recent trauma as well as the associated symptoms from traumatic events such as anxiety disorders, depression, self-esteem or confidence issues, passivity, relationship issues, managing stress, since of grief & loss, regulating emotions, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). I have years of experience working in community health with adolescents, adults, and their family with various emotional and mental issues. I firmly believe that everything we take in or intake throughout of life affects up in a positive or not so positive way, thus if the establish name of my practice "Intake Psychotherapy & Wellness. Thus, I strive to assist my clients with identifying and becoming more aware of their mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical parts so they can unlearn those things causing them distress and relearn positive aspects about themselves and build on areas that are needed.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I seek to provide individuals with quality counseling in a safe space so they can grow, heal, and rebuild. I assist individuals with healing from trauma and other stress-related issues and live with purpose. I create a nonjudgmental, unconditional, and compassionate environment for each of my clients to grow, heal, and rebuild their lives in a positive and healthy way. Clients often report leaving sessions with me feeling empowered and understanding more about what they are experiencing than they did before starting therapy with me. As a therapist, I lead from behind and my clients are always in control.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I am an integrative therapist, meaning I integrate various therapeutic modalities to assist clients on an individual basis. I firmly believe that no one modality or intervention suits all. Modalities I use often are Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems, Trauma-focused (CBT), Solution-focused, some EMDR, Mindfulness, and Psychodynamic. Many of the modalities I use require clients to be active, both during and between sessions. You will be asked to consider new perspectives and practice new behaviors. Please note that successful psychotherapy involves a commitment of time, collaboration, and openness to building a rapport with your therapist.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am a strong advocate for mental wellness and against domestic violence and seek to empower people on the significance of caring for their mental health. For me, counseling is more than a profession but a calling. Thus I strive to destigmatize mental illnesses and empower individuals to understand the importance of maintaining mental wellness.
