My Journey into Therapy
I truly feel my happiest and most fulfilled when I am helping others thrive. Helping people grow, achieve their goals, and THRIVE makes this job the most fulfilling experience for me. I love supporting those who ask for help, specifically those who WANT to change and grow. Individuals and couples who desire to be the best version of themselves are in a great position to benefit from my therapeutic services and tend to see positive results.
Education & Training
Having a passion for helping others and working with mental health, I studied and graduated from Temple University with my Bachelors Degree in Psychology. I furthered my education here in beautiful South Florida where I attended Nova Southeastern University and received my Masters Degree in Family Therapy. I am a fully Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.
I have experience working with at-risk teens and young adults struggling with many life challenges such as anxiety, peer pressure, self-esteem, school stress, depression, and more. My higher education and training was done in relational therapy where I developed my love for couples therapy and treating various relationship issues. In addition, having training in Level 1 Gottman Method Couples Therapy has aided me to assist couples looking to overcome relationship struggles such as communication, loss of trust, domestic violence, conflict resolution, parenting struggles, and more. I also have extensive experience and training working with individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, anger, domestic violence, relationship concerns, self-esteem struggles, stress, and much more.
More About Me
When I have down time from working with my clients, I try to get in as much ME time as possible! I am from Pennsylvania, the beauty and weather of sunny South Florida is still so exciting for me. I absolutely love going to the beach! I can’t think of many things more beautiful than the ocean. My hobbies include reading, listening to new music, spinning/cycling, pilates, shopping, Netflix (I am a show fanatic!), and anything active that gets me out of the house. Most of all, spending time with my family and friends. There is nothing that makes me happier than being in the company of good, funny, genuine people.
