I believe that the therapeutic relationship is one of collaboration. A therapist and client need to work together to help the client achieve their goals. Through a client-centered approach, I provide the them a safe environment to share their thoughts and feelings. We will explore the issues on hand together and identify opportunities to help the them meet their goals. I provide my client’s the tools to help them move forward and live a happier life.
My Professional Background
I obtained my Masters in counseling at Alabama A&M University and am currently a Doctoral Candidate at Barry University. Since becoming a counselor, I have worked in a community setting providing counseling to youth and families since 2017. I have many years of training and experience as a trauma and grief therapist. I have worked with clients that have been victims of both individual and communal traumas. I also help clients that struggle with anger, stress, depression, and family conflicts.

Most of my spare time is dedicated to continuing my doctoral degree, watching movies and going to the beach.

I also volunteer with the Florida Counseling Association (FCA) in several leadership roles.
