Hello, I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) based in Florida. I received my Masters from the Western Kentucky University and have been practicing for 10 years. I am passionate about creating a therapeutic environment of acceptance, safety, and non-judgement where clients can make sense of the most difficult pieces of their lives. I firmly believe that clients are the experts in their own lives and that my role is to serve as a sounding board for my client's self-discovery and growth. I have experience working with adolescents, teens, adults, couples, and families. I work with adolescents, young adults and families living with anxiety, depression, families issues and school issues.

Welcome! As many of us know the modern world can be a frantic place, one where demands are constant, and space is limited. In therapy you have a chance to pause and take stock, to become more aware of our feelings and to re-examine the choices we are making in a reflective and constructive way. I aim to provide a supportive relationship within which my clients can safely explore and better understand themselves and their relationships. I take an active role in helping people investigate a broader range of options than at first may appear and invite them to expand the limits of their imagination. I wish to encourage confidence and resilience in managing feelings of doubt or despair, and to help find a positive and affirming way ahead. My clients consist of children, adolescents and young adults experiencing roadblocks from emotional turmoil to family stressors and communication issues affecting that satisfaction and joy we all strive for. Like most people, we want to lead a life of significance and balance, and we know we are meant for more. You don't have to experience this alone with the right support you will learn that happiness is not a mysterious force it is the result of a set of skills that anyone can learn. Working together we will improve on positive emotional well-being and getting to your comfort zone.

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.
