I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist providing therapy for Millennials and couples and assisting them in reaching their personal and relational goals.
Treatment Orientation/Approach to Therapy
I approach my work with clients by first creating a safe and sacred space to express your most intimate feelings and thoughts without fear or concern of judgment. I am adept at meeting clients where they are and joining them in the process of exploring and implementing the changes they want and need to make in order to pursue their present-day and lifelong goals. I utilize a variety of therapy models and techniques including Client-Centered Therapy, Experiential Therapy, and Narrative Therapy in order to support individuals and couples, as they improve and enhance their overall function in life and love.
Particular Areas of Interest
My expertise is working with couples to improve the quality of their interactions and relationships and with individuals as they make meaningful changes that maximize their strengths while becoming the person they want to be. My clinical special interests include:
- Millenial Women
- Dating and Relationship Development
- Premarital Counseling
- Communication Issues
- Relationship Skill Building
- Transitioning to Parenthood
As an ordained minister, I also infuse faith-based/spiritually sensitive insights, for clients who wish you to engage their faith, particularly at the client’s request.
I have several years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families in a variety of settings. I worked as an individual, family, and group therapist for children and adolescents in serious mental health crises. I had the pleasure of collaborating with a team of clinicians that included other therapists, art therapists, and psychiatrists to provide quality mental health services to children and their families. I simultaneously worked as a therapist with a private practice in Largo, providing individual, couple, and family therapy.
