IMG_20171109_190411_908Coming from a divorced family, I found myself being drawn to the counseling profession so that I could help children and teens gain the tools to cope with change and stress that I did not have growing up. While attending college at the University of Central Florida I worked as a domestic violence victim advocate. It was at that time I realized how truly passionate I was about empowering others. I completed my graduate school internship and worked for several years at a school for adolescent girls who were struggling behaviorally and academically because of past trauma, abuse, or ongoing family conflict. Since then I have worked in both residential and outpatient settings providing individual, family, and group counseling to children, teens, and adults.

Snapchat-7059763407902857849I personally believe in the importance of engaging in self-care activities and enjoy yoga, going for walks with my dogs, kayaking and going to the beach in my free time. My passion for empowering others far exceeds my career as I also volunteer my time as a lead facilitator for GIRLS Academy, a weekend-long leadership retreat for middle-school aged girls all over the country.
