Licensed Mental Health Counselor (Florida)
I provide counseling services for individuals, couples, and families.
I am Licensed in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Hypnosis at the Master Practitioner Level.
My mission is to facilitate healing, growth, and creative abundance within the individual, couple, family, group and business. I bring professionalism and diligence to my work.
My background includes previous work experience in the Jail Diversion Program of the Public Defender’s Office in the Sixth Judicial Circuit. I have worked for the UNHCR with Refugees in their early stages of resettlement. I used expressive art and healing with refugee adolescents and their families to assist in their transition from War Camps to life in the United States. I worked directly with sexual trauma victims, including survivors of sex trafficking. I was an Artist In Residence at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, FL where I was trained to use expressive art with medical staff, patients and care-givers. I worked as a Family Therapist on a high-risk team for child safety in Pinellas County.
Specialties include: Recovery from sexual trauma, domestic violence and abuse, addictions, and 12-Step work; chronic pain, illness, cancer recovery; anxiety, depressive disorders; pregnancy and post-partum care; grief and loss work; sexuality and gender identity; women’s empowerment.
I love collaborating with my clients to facilitate mind-body-spirit work in order to restore, empower, and help them experience a more holistic, creative and joyful life!
