Hello and welcome! I received a B.A. from the University of South Florida and a MSW from Walden University. Prior to my role as a therapist at The Counseling & Wellness Boutique, I worked in depth with the elderly population, coordinating service referrals and completing home visits to ensure their well-being. However, my career roots started with children and families involved in Florida's child welfare system. Both of these roles required a high level of patience, care, and attention to the individuals and families I served. 


Overall, as a woman and mother, I also know what it's like to need extra support to "figure yourself out". We all have personal insecurities and taking care of ourselves is key. Let me be your sounding board as you build your self esteem and work through past hurts! 

I really enjoy working with couples. Every relationship has its ups and downs. I'd love to help you and your partner navigate your 'yuck' while providing a neutral space. 

I am a compassionate and dedicated individual who is committed to serving and providing support to those in need in a holistic atmosphere. My background history has provided me with insight as to how trauma impacts people. I'd love to help you work through your experiences! 

I am also bilingual, fluent in English & Spanish.
