As someone who practices marriage and family therapy, I naturally focus on relationships. I believe that we are all a reflection of our relationships and that we tend to envision who we are based on the part we play in these partnerships and what our loved one believes about us. We make life plans with all this in mind. It is because of the impact our connections have on us, that I understand the need to help those dealing with transitions around your relationships, whether they be romantic, platonic or with yourself. These changes can be you realizing the position you imagined you were in is transforming, slipping away or even ending, and you now need help to figure out who you are and what you will do following this new shift in your journey.
Within each new turn in life, there is an opportunity for self discovery, exploring questions about your actual needs and gaining strength to move forward in a healthy way. This journey does not have to be taken alone and my goal is to support and move beside you until you are again able to ride the waves, more empowered than when you began.
I’ve earned a Masters’ degree from Barry University, with dual specialties in marriage, family and couples therapy and mental health counseling. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, registered with the Florida Board of Marriage and Family Therapy, a Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and a Certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor (CCMHC). I am also a life coach, trained with the Coaching and Positive Psychology Institute (CaPP Institute). My time with individuals and couples is focused on a humanistic and strength-based foundation to allow for clients, connection, self-discovery and healing. It is through not only my professional experience that I engage in our work together, but I show up with my own real life experience in loss, shifts in points of view, walking through a battlefield of change and finding ways to shed an old skin to come to the other side of things more empowered and full of joy than imagined that inspires a belief that there is always more for you and a faith that you are 100% the author of your own story.
