Hello! Congratulations on taking your first steps in your journey to better mental health! Beginning counseling can feel like a large undertaking but it is well worth it. You have already shown strength by looking for a potential counselor. While I do provide a complementary consultation where we can get to know each other, here is a little about me and my journey.
I believe that individuals are impacted by the different systems in which they interact and to learn more about how individuals are influenced by these systems, I got my BA in Sociology at the University of Central Florida. From there, I continued at the University of Central Florida to pursue my Masters in Counselor Education with a specialization in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and a certificate in Marriage, Couples, and Family Therapy.
I took my first steps as a counselor at the Community Counseling and Research Center at UCF. I continued my journey by interning at a private practice working with individuals, couples, and facilitating groups. I have worked with clients with issues ranging from substance abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, relational issues, and identity development. I look forward to meeting you!
