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.  By encouraging and integrating creative expression with traditional "talk therapy", solutions to your stuck points are infinitely possible. I'm passionate about the power of thinking outside the box when life throws us curveballs.  

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 find solutions to your concerns or simply want to talk about what's going on, I can help you reach your goals.  I can help you find ways of discovering self-advocacy, empowerment and getting through your stuck points.

Plain and simple, I believe in my clients.

I am committed to the belief that solutions exist. As a counselor/client team, I will help you find those 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!
