I help depressed, anxious, and hurting teens find their strength, gain new skills, and get relief from their overwhelming emotions. My goal is to help teens move from crisis to coping while learning to use safe and healthy coping skills in the process. My work in community mental health agencies, an adolescent inpatient psychiatric facility, and as a school-based therapist over 25 years has allowed me to enhance my clinical skills in the areas of trauma, suicidal thoughts, self-harming behaviors, and social anxiety.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with British Caribbean roots and from the tail end of the baby boomer generation, I have come to acknowledge the roller-coaster ride that life offers with numerous highs, lows, and constant cycles of new beginnings and closures. My career in the mental health profession began to take shape in 2012, which led me to secure a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work from the esteemed University of South Florida. Since 2014, my focus has been on supporting children and families in Florida. The unprecedented emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 disrupted our social lives drastically, prompting an increased need for virtual counseling. However, I managed to adapt to this change in my practice, thus registering continuous growth in the Telehealth space from then onward. My practice now serves the wider population.
