My professional development started at THE FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY - Go NOLES! I went on to gain tremendous experience in the field of trauma, foster care licensing, adoptive family training and support, and eventually mental health therapy. I also worked with the adult/elderly population completing critical case management services. Further, as the daughter of an Air Force Veteran, I have experience with military support services working with the Department of Veterans Affairs. With over 10 years of experience working with at risk children, individuals, and families, I am truly committed to my clients.
I have advanced clinical training in somatic therapies such as Brainspotting & EMDR. My goal is to help the world heal from its trauma history. I enjoy working with clients of all backgrounds!
After being in private practice for a few years I decided it was time to expand. I am thankful to have six lovely and talented Clinicians of Color as a part of my dream team!
