Let's get to know each other!

The therapeutic relationship is one of trust, respect, and an alliance toward achieving your overall well-being. Acknowledging areas of your life that you would like to improve and deciding to do what it takes to make those changes takes a lot of courage and strength. If you feel guilty about the past, overthink the present, or worry about the future, you may benefit from having someone to talk through these things.

Together, we will identify the challenges you are currently experiencing and determine what you want to gain through counseling. Whether it be exploring your past to find the significance and meaning in certain events, providing you with healthy coping skills to overcome and work through obstacles, or setting objectives and working towards the best version of yourself – I will be by your side to help you navigate the process and achieve your goals.

A bit more about me…

I graduated from the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and from Walden University with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a specialization in addiction. I have worked specifically with the substance use population for the past six years, working in detox facilities, residential programs, and outpatient settings.

My goal is to educate you about the disease of addiction while providing you with relapse-prevention skills to help you maintain long-term sobriety and improve your overall mental well-being.

While working with the substance use population, I have found that substance use and mental health issues often coexist, and both require hope, compassion, and support to overcome. I am honored to take this journey with you and look forward to working together!

My Fun Facts:

My happy place is by or on a body of water! I love paddle boarding in the mangroves, springs, and rivers and am always looking for new places to explore. I moved to Sarasota in 2015 with the sole idea that I would be at the beach every day, and although I didn’t achieve this goal, I try to keep it a regular part of my self-care routine.

I love yoga! I’ve been practicing for over ten years and find being on the mat incredibly healing. My long-term goals are to become a certified yoga teacher and incorporate trauma-informed yoga into my counseling program.

I have a corgi and a corgi pit bull mix (basically a pit bull with tiny legs), and my favorite thing to do after a long day is to hang out with them, my two cats, and my partner on the couch reading my kindle!

I am a total nerd when it comes to the brain. I plan on getting my doctorate in neuropsychology to keep me updated on the most recent research so that I can provide you with the most effective techniques for hacking your nervous system! I’ll do my best to keep neuroscience to a minimum in session, but I think it is so essential to understand the science behind your experience.
