Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Saint Petersburg, FL

About My Clients

Accepting clients in-person in Downtown St. Petersburg, Florida. I specialize in working with people ages 12-35 in individual therapy. I also practice Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ages 18-99) which is an evidenced eye-movement therapy. Have you been feeling anxious and like things are starting to spiral out of control? Holistic practices can reduce anxiety tremendously, and I look forward to teaching you tools to take your life back.

My Background and Approach

I believe that we are all doing the best we can and therapy can help us feel our best. In therapy, you will gain the tools necessary to help you on your journey through life. Together we can figure out the root of your struggles and worries. Whether you or your child struggles with vulnerability, emotional regulation, anxiety, or relationships, I'm here to help you find solutions and new strategies to put to use. We will complete a treatment plan together that will be tailored around your goals. My therapeutic approach is strength based, and I often include elements of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy to help guide clients on their journey of learning why things affect them the way they do and learn new skills to thrive. I have worked in private practices over the last two years and works in schools full-time as a school psychologist. I am also trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Being a former D1 athlete, working in schools, and being a child of immigrants has given me ample experience with people from different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. As a school psychologist, therapist, and avid reader, I have gained a lot of insight into how to help others and be the safe space that you need. Brené Brown says that people just want to feel seen, heard, and valued and I'm here to give you that nonjudgmental ear to help you feel more connected and grounded. Whether you're a high school student, current college student, or millennial we can work together to process whatever brings you to therapy and figure out what you can do to make every day one full of hope.
