Too often life is full of turning points- times when you must start over or make a big decision, whether by choice or circumstance. Change is hard, whether it’s expected or not. I consider it an honor to assist my clients in navigating life changes to become the best versions of themselves possible. My passion is supporting couples and individuals as they work through challenging experiences and explore new tools to be successful.

I have worked in the mental health field since 2007 in a variety of settings. I’ve worked in residential treatment facilities, home-based services, community mental health agencies, and crisis services. My experience includes children, teenagers, and adults, ages 6-65.

I have experience providing individual, family, and couples counseling. I have supported goals ranging from stress management and anxiety reduction to grief, trauma processing, and crisis de-escalation. I love working with couples and families as they navigate challenges in their relationships by providing strategies for effective communication, conflict resolution, and effective tools that address underlying areas that are impacting the relationship.

I enjoy working with individuals who experience chronic depression and/or trauma that have resulted in personality disorders. I enjoy working with adolescents and emerging adults. I use interventions from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and the Gottman Method for couples to assist my clients in understanding the links between their past experiences and current patterns of behavior. My belief is that awareness can create change, which can create healthy minds and relationships.

A bit more about me…

I was raised in Sarasota and graduated from Riverview High School (Go Rams!). I graduated from Florida Southern College with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2006 (Go Mocs!) and then moved to North Carolina, where I worked at a wilderness residential facility for adjudicated juveniles. In 2010, I moved to Nashville, TN, where I began working in community mental health and attending graduate school at Capella University. I earned my Masters’ degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2013 and became licensed in Tennessee as a Licensed Professional Counseling with a Mental Health Service Provider designation in 2017. Once licensed, my career focused on working with military personnel and their families. I also worked as the Clinical Supervisor for Suicide Prevention and Crisis Stabilization for Centerstone of Tennessee. I opened my own private practice in 2019. Most recently, life circumstances have brought me back to the Sarasota area where I enthusiastically and quickly became a Licensed Mental Health Counselor for the state of Florida. I’m so excited to be back home and to be working in my original community.

I fully believe that starting therapy should be as uncomplicated as possible. You’ve made the decision that counseling would be beneficial for you, and that should be the hardest step you have to make! Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

I am passionate about helping you find the right path for you. I believe you are the expert of your life, and it is my job to help you identify your true potential. While we can’t change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

My Fun Facts:

  • I love anything to do with the water. Give me a body of water and some sunshine, and I am set for the day.
  • I’m a book worm to the core. My goal for this year is to read 52 books. I enjoy most fiction genres but have most recently been on a psychological thriller kick.
  • I proudly support the US military. I have several US Marines in my family (including my brother) and was married to an Army Infantryman for close to ten years.
