UNDERSTANDING WHO WE’VE BEEN, ACCEPTING WHO WE ARE, TRANSFORMING WHO WE’LL BE.

THANKS FOR WANTING TO LEARN MORE ABOUT WHO I AM AND WHAT I DO!

My counseling experience ranges from working with adults in private practice to adolescents in a school setting. My counseling approach involves in-depth emotional exploration and accessible behavioral tools to enable clients to begin the healing process.

I earned my B.A. and M.A. in Psychology from the University of West Florida. I have maintained a professional level of Yoga Instruction since 2002, allowing me to train teachers and provide professional CEU’s. I am passionate about working with couples and I am currently in the process of certification in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (What is EFT?).

I have conducted and presented research based on mindfulness, suicidality, and nutrition in addition to earning a master’s level certification in Health Psychology at the University of West Florida concurrently with my M.A. in Psychology.
