My roots are in South Carolina, but I am proud to call South Florida my home. I love this city, the people, the families, and the South Florida community as a whole. I am experienced with children, adolescents and adults, providing individual, couple, family, and group therapy.
I am passionate about helping individuals dealing with adjustment issues, depression, anxiety, grief & loss, trauma, self-esteem issues, eating and other body related concerns, and relationships. I also have experience supporting individuals in coping with life transitions, identity concerns, and personal development.
I am passionate about couples work and like to utilize the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy to help disarm conflicting communication; increase intimacy, respect, and affection; remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy; and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship. I played soccer at the University of South Carolina and enjoy working with athletes and anybody recovering from any issues associated with sports settings. I combine different approaches by emphasizing my clients’ talents and resources.
I see each person’s life experience, that they have been willing to share, as a gift. I am passionate about helping people grow in their lives and relationships, leading to greater peace, purpose, happiness, and fulfillment. My hope is to create an encouraging space for my clients to reach their desired goals/experiences. I integrate a variety of therapeutic approaches to address the specific needs throughout the therapeutic process. My experience, family, sports, and Carolina background have influenced how much I care for and honor my clientele.
