Too often, we equate caring for our mental and emotional health with weakness and failure - especially when we're taught that our “strength” is based on our ability to handle the stresses of everyday life without “cracking”. I've dedicated my career to overcoming this myth by helping young adults and adults develop wellness plans that promote emotional and mental balance, internal peace, and positive coping and communication skills.
My Background and Approach
My expertise includes: PTSD & stress management, substance abuse, mood disorders, grief, anxiety, gender identity, sexual trauma, physical & emotional abuse, teen dating violence, and LGBTQ & women's issues. I also have experience providing psychoeducation and prevention for individuals within the judicial system.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe self-care and laughter are important healing components to daily life stresses. In my off time I can be found spending quality time with my family and friends. I also incorporate reading books, playing video games, painting, and indulging in local shops around Central Florida.
