​​​​Welcome!

Providing the Central Florida community with mental health counseling 

services through creativity and compassion.  


My mission is to empower clients, while providing a safe-space for overcoming life's obstacles.  I'm passionate about the power of thinking outside the box when life throws us curveballs. By integrating creative solutions, overcoming stuck points becomes possible.   


Life shows up in many ways, shapes and forms.  Because of this, I help to personalize your counseling experience how it best suits you.  Just like each of us are unique, so is the therapy process.


If you feel stuck with your situation, are looking to reignite a part of your life, or simply want to talk about what's going on, don't hesitate to reach out and see how I can be of service. 


Plain and simple, I believe in my clients, empowering others, and providing a space to discover your voice.


I am committed to the belief that solutions exist. As a counselor/client team, we can find the solutions that help to find the confidence you desire, establishing a healthy sense of self and succeeding with the goals you hope to achieve. 


Please don't hesitate to contact me to see how we can best work together.  I look forward to hearing from you and wish you a wonderful day!
