My approach to therapy combines all of the fundamentals of traditional counseling with the belief that it should be geared toward people and their individual situations in this modern world. If you are looking for a stuffy, boring experience, I may not be the therapist for you. I believe that therapy can produce results and be a part of the week that you look forward to.
I believe that the job of a therapist is to work with the client on collaborative relationship building in a safe space where growth can happen. I also firmly believe that therapy is an excellent preventative tool that can help someone now not only when they are in crisis. If you have the structure, boundaries, tools and relationships in place now – you will be one step ahead in navigating a difficult time.
I specialize in working with women and adolescent/teen girls, those who struggle with anxiety.
I have more than a decade of experience in working with individuals, including four years of executive level leadership in a large nonprofit organization. I hold an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Loyola University New Orleans and master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University.
In addition to my career in therapy, I am a regular contributor to InTheBite Magazine, have managed a floating marlin fishing lodge in Central America, and traveled widely. I am also a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida. After 14 years in the sunny South, my family and I are thrilled to return back to my hometown of Cleveland. I am a mother of two daughters.
