I am a compassionate licensed mental health counselor who is committed to helping relieve distress and guide individuals to their greatest potential. I strive to create an atmosphere where clients feel heard and free to share comfortably.
Collaboratively, I work with individuals to establish and
meet relevant treatment goals, alleviate symptoms which interfere with day-to-day functioning, and provide clients with the tools to ultimately become their own therapist.
I incorporate a variety of evidence-based treatment approaches based on individual needs. With extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I help individuals explore the influence of their thought patterns on their feelings and behavioral choices.
Clinically, I have worked with children, teens, and young adults with a variety of diagnoses or symptoms of Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, Autism, and those in need of general social or coping skills.
I received a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Psychology from University of Miami, a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University, and am currently finishing up research requirements to obtain my PhD in Mental Health Counseling from Pace University.

I am a warm and caring provider who appreciates the opportunity to help my clients achieve their goals. Therapy is a personal experience and whether you are struggling with depression and/or anxiety, relationship conflict, work stress, marriage problems, self-esteem issues or encountering a life transition, we will work interactively to find and use the best treatment approach.
I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and graduate degree from Loyola University Chicago. I also completed advanced training in Couple and Family Therapy at the Ackerman Institute for the Family. Furthermore, I have extensive experience using many other models of treatment including but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Problem-Solving Therapy and Motivational Interviewing.
