Hi! I grew up in New York and received my bachelor's degree from Hunter College. I relocated to South Florida in 2014 to obtain my MSW from Florida Atlantic University. I have worked in various settings and provided services to a variety of clients. I am most passionate about eliminating the stigma associated with mental health disorders-especially in communities of color. I specialize in facilitating transformational healing experiences. My work focuses on targeting and putting an end to limiting beliefs while empowering individuals to become their own healers. I also specialize in issues surrounding adoption, primarily for adoptees with a focus on transracial adoption. *When scheduling, please ensure to complete all intake documents before our first session.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
After our sessions you can expect to feel empowered and heard. My goal is to provide a healing space where empathy is the catalyst to transformation.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
I am EMDR trained and operate from a trauma informed framework. Additionally, I utilize CBT, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Motivational Interviewing techniques. I am also well versed in holistic and spiritual approaches with the ability to meet clients where they are in these areas.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
I pride myself in my ability to connect with clients in ways they have not experienced before-whether it is spiritually, culturally etc. I have a deeply empathic nature, the comfort and safety of my client is my main priority.
