Hi all! I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) based in the state of Florida. I earned my Masters Degree from the University of Central Florida, and I've been practicing mental health therapy for 5 years. I truly enjoy helping adolescents and adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, social issues, life transition, and racial and/ or gendered oppression.

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

In our first session together, we'll start with giving introductions and identifying your strengths. Then, we will discuss your current challenges so that we can develop a treatment plan together with goals for us to work towards throughout the following therapy sessions. I also like to use this time to answer any questions about to what to expect in therapy.

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

Throughout the past 5 years, I have been lucky enough to work with such a diverse population of adolescents and adults, including those experiencing anxiety, depression, houselessness, racialized-oppression, and gender dysphoria. This experience has helped me develop a number of creative, empowering, client-centered, and community-centered techniques designed to help clients identify their current strengths, identify their current challenges, and develop plans that allow them to track measurable progress throughout sessions.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT is a treatment method that I enjoy using with my clients to help them identify distorted thought patterns, challenge negative thoughts, and gain awareness on how their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors all impact each other. I love to do this in creative and collaborative ways that highlight my clients' existing strengths.

Daialectical Behavior (DBT)

DBT is a treatment method that I enjoy using with my clients to help them develop skills in mindfulness, emotional regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness. I enjoy doing this in a structured and empowering way that helps my clients measure their progress throughout treatment.

EMDR

EMDR is a treatment method that I enjoy using with my clients to help them process and heal from their traumatic or distressing life experiences. This is a treatment approach that can be used even in telehealth sessions to help clients better cope with their symptoms.

Gender-affirming therapy

Gender-affirming therapy is a treatment method that I enjoy using with my clients to help them process and reduce feelings of gender dysphoria. I love doing this in ways that both empower and connect my clients to other gender-affirming resources within their communities.

Feminist

Feminist therapy is a treatment method that I enjoy using to help my clients better understand the social factors that may contribute to their mental-health concerns. I enjoy doing this by highlighting and building on their personal strengths, rather than pathologizing valid thoughts and feelings.
