10 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hello! I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) based in Orlando, FL, with nearly a decade of experience after earning my Masters from Nova Southeastern University. I specialize in supporting teen girls and women facing challenges such as anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, grief, ADHD, and parenting concerns. My approach centers on creating a nurturing space for personal growth and positive change.

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

In our first session, clients can expect an open and collaborative discussion. We’ll explore the challenges you’re currently facing and delve into the goals you have for counseling. This initial conversation lays the foundation for our therapeutic journey, allowing me to tailor treatment goals and shape future sessions based on your unique needs and aspirations.

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

As a therapist, my greatest strengths lie in my extensive experience working with teens, fostering a comfortable and open environment. My approach is characterized by warmth, support, empowerment, motivation, and a strong focus on goal-oriented outcomes. I excel in building rapport with teens, creating a space where they feel understood and encouraged to share their experiences. My therapeutic style aims to empower individuals, guiding them toward positive change and achieving their goals.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I specialize in employing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to guide individuals toward positive mental well-being. My approach involves collaboratively identifying and reshaping thought patterns that may contribute to challenges, fostering healthier behaviors and coping mechanisms. Through personalized sessions, I work with clients to set and achieve specific goals, empowering them to navigate life's complexities with resilience and improved mental clarity.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

My practice integrates mindfulness-based therapy as a powerful tool for promoting mental well-being. With a foundation in mindfulness principles, I guide clients in cultivating present-moment awareness and non-judgmental acceptance. This approach allows individuals to develop a deeper understanding of their thoughts and emotions, fostering a more balanced and compassionate perspective. In sessions, I incorporate mindfulness techniques, such as meditation and mindful breathing, tailored to each client’s unique needs. Through this practice, clients often experience increased self-awareness, stress reduction, and a greater capacity for emotional regulation.

Trauma Informed Care

My practice is rooted in trauma-informed care, recognizing the profound impact of trauma on mental health. I approach clients with sensitivity, prioritizing safety and trust. Through open communication, I collaboratively explore the effects of trauma, acknowledging its influence on thoughts and behaviors. I tailor interventions to promote empowerment and resilience, emphasizing choice and control in the healing process.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

I bring extensive experience in Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) to my practice, emphasizing practical, goal-oriented approaches. In sessions, I collaborate with clients to identify their strengths and explore solutions to current challenges. By focusing on specific, achievable goals, we work efficiently toward positive outcomes.

Family Therapy

With a strong foundation in family therapy, my practice involves a systemic approach to address interpersonal dynamics. I have significant experience guiding families through communication challenges, conflict resolution, and strengthening relationships. In sessions, I facilitate open dialogue, helping each family member express their perspective and understand others’.
