I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor here to help guide you to and through self-growth, self-exploration, and discovering your most authentic self. Taking that first step towards self-care through therapy can be a really intimidating task at first, but it is not by chance or coincidence that you have thought to consider this route. I believe in incorporating health and wellness into therapy, as self-growth requires a holistic approach of mind, body, and soul. Overall wellness is a key concept in my therapeutic methods as taking care of yourself physically is also an act of self-care and is just as important as tending to your mental health. In helping my clients understand the connection between mental health and physical health, I collaborate education with strategies for living a healthy lifestyle in regards to nutrition, exercise, meditation, and mental health. I have a passion for helping individuals with weight and body image issues and understand, from personal experience, how this can affect one’s mental health. I also specialize in healing individuals with a history of trauma, depression, and anxiety.
I have been practicing therapy for over seven years in various settings. I obtained a dual master’s degree from Barry University in Marriage and Family Therapy & Mental Health Counseling, and have an intensive background in treating substance abuse and individuals involved in the child welfare system. I find joy in helping individuals not only heal, but discover their most authentic self to flourish within their chosen life. I am here to help guide you through your journey.
I primarily work with adults who are experiencing any of the following concerns:
I accept the following insurances, EAPs, and Foundation vouchers. Before we meet together, please double check with your insurance to receive your estimated copay amount. Unfortunately, I am unable to accept any Medicare/Medicaid plans.
We can also meet together via private pay at my current rate of $150 per session. 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.
