About Me

I'm a graduate of the University of Florida for my undergraduate degree, and I received my Masters Degree in Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis.  I worked in the hospital system in Miami-Dade and Broward counties, and then transitioned to private practice over 10 years ago. I was raised in South Florida, where I still reside with my family and two rescue dogs. In my own personal self-care time, I enjoy reading, movies, going to concerts and musicals, shopping, Pilates, and relaxing.

My Philosophy of Therapy

I offer individualized mental health care, and provide a neutral, safe space for my clients. I call the people I see "clients" instead of "patients" because "patient" is derived from a medical model, which implies something is wrong or needs fixing.   I wish to collaborate with you to overcome obstacles by focusing on your resilience and strengths (yes, we all have them!).  

I am interested in helping my clients live their best lives possible, working with them to create a toolkit of coping skills based on their strengths. I believe our lives are shaped by our past experiences, but they don't define the person we are today. Let's clarify what is important to you in your life currently, and how we can work together to move you through what is making you feel emotionally or physically "stuck".

Even though we often deal with serious and upsetting matters during therapy sessions, I feel it's important to have some levity and laughter when appropriate. Humor is a wonderful, but often underrated, tool. I practice an eclectic mix of therapies to reduce stress and increase happiness and feelings of self-efficacy.

Therapy Specialties

Depression & Anxiety; Fear & Anger

Depression, fear, anger, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience. Emotions are causally interconnected, and one emotion tends to lead to another. Choosing to move ahead and gain control over these, to the best of your ability, is essential to living a healthy, more peaceful and well-balanced life.   

 

Sex-Positive Therapy (including Kink/Fetish) Open, Non-Monogamous, and Poly Relationships

Sexuality is a spectrum, and differences are not disorders!  Sometimes clients do not feel comfortable sharing about their sexual or relationship practices because of prior shame or fear that they will embarrass themselves or the therapist.  I currently see people from all over the sexuality and relationship spectrum, and feel therapy should be a safe space to discuss this important aspect of your life.

Chronic Illness,Chronic Pain, and Terminal Illness

Prior to opening my private practice, I worked in the hospital system. I have a strong medical knowledge base, and currently see many medically complex clients. Dealing with illness, disease, and pain is an emotional roller coaster.  Developing coping strategies, focusing on what you can control vs. what you cannot, and support are essential parts of managing the above conditions.
