I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist serving residents of Florida. I have extensive experience working with adults and couples in various settings including hospital medical centers, private practice, college counseling, community mental health, and the prison system. I have received specialized training in substance use and addiction disorders, completing a yearlong postdoctoral fellowship focused on treating people struggling to break the control substances had on their lives. A great deal of my training and experience has been with veterans and military families. As a proud military spouse, I am deeply connected to serving this population.
I completed my Ph.D. at the Virginia Consortium Program in Clinical Psychology (VCPCP). During my time at the VCPCP, I taught psychology of sex to undergraduates, was a project specialist on a HIV grant, and presented research at national conferences on race-related issues. I am also an alumna of Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University (FAMU) where I earned a Master of Science degree in Community Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology.
In practice, I focus on working with individuals and couples to navigate unhealthy beliefs/patterns and help you to create a more balanced and fulfilled life. My approach is non-judgmental, collaborative, interactive, and compassionate. Through this process, the goal is for you to gain clarity while feeling heard in a safe environment. I apply various scientifically researched techniques and modalities to my practice including cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, emotion-focused, and person-centered therapy. If you are ready for a transformation, I am here to help and empower you. I look forward to working with you soon!
I primarily work with adults who are experiencing any of the following concerns:
I accept all commercial United Healthcare and UMR insurance plans. Unfortunately, I am unable to accept any Medicare/Medicaid plans. Before we meet together, please double check with your insurance to receive your estimated copay amount.
We can also meet together via private pay at my current rate of $175 per session for individual therapy and $200 per session for couples therapy. I accept credit/debit, health savings account (HSA) cards, and flexible savings account (FSA) cards. If you have out-of-network benefits with your insurance, I'd be happy to complete documentation for you to be reimbursed for your payments.
