Counseling is about growing in personal freedom and wholeness. Life is filled with brokenness - broken relationships, shame of being known and fear of reaching out. Counseling offers the opportunity to talk about our own personal brokenness in a safe and honest environment. When we receive care, truth and acceptance in our broken places, we begin to develop personal wholeness. Wholeness is the capacity to experience freedom in yourself and find life that transcends all suffering and limitations that disable you from becoming the best you that you were created to be. Rather than attempts at perfecting or disowning our broken parts, acceptance of self is at the core of the healing process. Once wholeness and self acceptance are possible, we are then set free to fulfill our potential to love God, self and others.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Owner
After receiving my Masters Degree in Counseling in 2007 I began working in the counseling field. I’ve held positions at Orlando Health as a trauma expert and I was the director of counseling services at a local college. Recently I’ve settled into private practice. Along the way, I have gained valuable experience working with a multitude of different types of clients. I feel deeply called to help people who have been hurt by life circumstances such as trauma, divorce, infidelity, abuse, addiction, depression and relationship struggles (to name a few).
It is in these dark places that we are often presented with a choice: we can truly recover the lost parts of ourselves and heal if we are willing to walk through the pain with a trusted and trained counselor -or- we can avoid the darkness and pain, and lose the wonderful opportunity to heal and emerge with more strength and beauty than before. It is my honor to walk with my clients through confusion and pain to find hope and healing again.
For over 10 years as a psychotherapist I have built expertise in treating the following conditions:
Traumatic events (PTSD)
Relationship issues / Divorce
Because each person is different, I believe it's important to have a variety of therapeutic approaches. What may not work well for one client can be extremely effective for another. This is why I use an array of counseling methods to tailor to my approach to each clients specific needs. I am trained in Internal Family Systems, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) and Object Relations Therapy. I use these therapy styles regularly to help my clients achieve the next desired step toward personal growth and healing. I am a Qualified Supervisor in the State of Florida, offering counseling supervision to Master's level therapists.
I'm originally from the wine country in Northern California, and I've lived in Central Florida since 2005. I enjoy the outdoors, fishing, playing the guitar, sports, art and spending time with my family and friends. I enjoy actively engaging with my church community.
