I truly care for all of my clients, and work diligently to help find them the answers they seek. Since 2012, I have worked with a variety of clients dealing with circumstances that are unique to their lives. Life can be complicated and having someone in your corner can ease fears and worries while allowing for growth and healing. My passion as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor is working with individuals and couples who have experienced trauma and difficult times. As a wife, mom, grandmother, and dog mom, I also enjoy assisting family and friends in reaching their goals. I will be here to encourage you, support you and validate you.
I know making the decision to come to therapy can be difficult, scary and leave you feeling vulnerable but taking that first step is the key to unlocking the door towards becoming your best self. You are the true expert of yourself and often just need additional encouragement to identify and explore areas that are no longer working.
Vulnerability, shame, and guilt can prevent you from seeking the help and support you need to find solace in your head, heart and life. I am a daughter of Veteran and wife of a fire fighter. I know personally the stigmas and stressors that come along with seeking treatment. I have a deep understanding and love of the firefighting, EMT, and paramedic communities. Break those chains that keep you from seeking, happiness, forgiveness, healing, and serenity. One of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Having a good grasp of the very real issues with which first responders must face and handle on a daily basis I will help you navigate the issues and memories that haunt you and find real, lasting solutions for long term healing.
I promise I won't bite, but I am a loud Bostonian haha! Allow me to walk and guide you on your path to uncovering and rediscovering who you are and what you already know but struggling to see.
My clinical approaches include:
Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, ART Accelerated Resolution Therapy.
My approach is to meet you where you are while encouraging you to build and grow into your best self. We are all unique and no two people are the same. Therefore, my therapy is not a one size fits all. Since we require different approaches, I combine my modalities and theories to provide you the best treatment for your individual needs. I encourage you to be your own advocate while learning to connect your dots along your journey and pave your own path to a healing and serenity.
Since 2012 I have been working in the mental health and counseling profession. Through my experiences I have had the honor in assisting individuals of all ages in multiple treatment settings including, community counseling, inpatient treatment programs, foster care systems, and adult residential facilities. I currently offer telehealth therapy in the state of Florida, which allows me the ability to reach more people and those who are seeking serenity in their lives.
