Practice Information:
I am a licensed mental health counselor specializing in individual, child, adolescent, marriage and family therapy, and maintain a private practice in Longwood, Florida, serving the Orlando metropolitan area. My goal is to create a nurturing environment for individuals, families and professionals of all ages to learn, grow and flourish.

With over 15 years experience in the mental health field, I work with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are helping children and adults through major life transitions, as well as improving their relationships with self and others. Developing direct and honest relationships, with both self and others, is the foundation for living an emotionally healthy life. As a therapist, I model this principle in my work, and help clients develop the tools to build healthy relationship practices in their lives. I am a wife, mother and grandmother, so among other specialties my practice includes a focus on the needs of mothers, and I am dedicated to honoring and compassionately bringing forth the innate unfolding beauty, wisdom, and grace inherent in every mom.

I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
