My goal as a counselor is to meet each individual where they are. Experienced in working with children, adolescents, adults, and families.
Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Maitland, FL
One of my areas of passion is working with caregivers supporting loved ones with chronic health conditions such as dementia and Alzheimers. Being a caregiver is a really unique and challenging role that can lead to feelings of loneliness, grief, burnout, and anxiety. My flexibility, training in working with caregivers, and experience working with caregivers has helped many individual's navigate the stress that comes along with caregiving.
I have worked with adolescents for close to 10 years and have found that my training, experience, and personality is a natural fit in working with youth with a variety of concerns. I have experience working with youth with anxiety; depression; self-injury, selective mutism, school avoidance, substance use and abuse; trauma; grief and loss; defiance; and anger management concerns.
I am an LGBTQ-affirming therapist. I support individuals of all genders and sexual orientations to feel more connected to themselves, partners, friends and community. I provide an open space to talk about issues related to gender identity and sexuality such as: Increasing self-acceptance, coming out, LGBTQ family building, and referral letters for gender affirming surgeries.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy can be a great choice for individuals that are looking to experience noticeable changes quickly and are committed to working daily between sessions.
I always put the individual and their experience first. Creating a warm, affirming, and supportive environment based on trust and respect is very important in a successful counseling relationship.
CBT is an evidenced-based treatment for overcoming anxiety and depression. Looking at how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors impact each other and our lives can be the first step in making lasting changes.
Counseling for children and teens is a strength and passion of mine. At times, youth can be reluctant to share or engage in counseling. I have a lot of success connecting with youth in these cases in order for them to reach their personal goals while also helping the family unit heal. I have experience working with youth with anxiety; depression; self-injury, selective mutism, school avoidance, substance use and abuse; trauma; grief and loss; defiance; and anger management concerns.
