Welcome and thank you for taking the time to learn more about me and how I can help you. If you are looking for someone to help you and your partner navigate through tumultuous times and rebuild your relationship, then you have come to the right place! I specialize in marriage, couples and family therapy. I have built my practice towards helping my clients repair communication, heal through affairs and addiction, and navigate life transitions such parenthood and divorce. I like to call this process "Recovery Therapy". I truly believe that with a helping hand and a good listener on your side, you and your partner can rebuild trust and commitment. I help my clients practice healthy communication skills and learn ways to reconnect. I provide an extremely empathetic ear, support and safety to assist with rebuilding love connections.
My passion lies in helping others help themselves. My philosophy and approach mimics that of the phrase "Keep it simple". Sometimes life throws us off course and it can be difficult to navigate on our own. My approach is solution-focused and systemic, combining the strengths and skills that are inherent to you with the guidance and support of therapy, to help bring you back on your intended path.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Florida State University with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Psychology. I continued my education at Nova Southeastern University, graduating with a Master's of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a licensed marriage and family therapist in the state of Florida and have specialized training in marital therapy and substance abuse issues. My professional experience is vastly comprised of private practice experience and serving as the Clinical Director in a substance abuse treatment facility.
