Hello Monday

Hello! I am so glad you are here.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) Licensed in Florida.

I was born and raised in Florida. I began my higher education journey at Palm Beach State College where I received my AA and AS in human services. I then went on for my Bachelors in Social work from FAU. After my Bachelors I applied and was approved for their Advanced standing program for high achievers, which allowed me to complete my Masters degree in social work while working full time.

My early experiences as a therapist were at a dual diagnosis facility where folks could come get help for severe and persistent mental health issues and or addiction issues. This allowed me to work with people from all walks of life and to see and treat many issues including anxiety, addiction, depression, PTSD, Bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, self esteem issues, and relationship issues, as well as significant adverse childhood experiences including neglect. I loved my clients but felt limited due to the programs 30-60 day limit.

This caused me to move into private practice where I could continue seeing all the above people, but with no time limitations on therapy. This also afforded me the ability to work extensively with first responders and Veterans. I discovered I could see the powerful change that therapy can create for those who are open minded and do the work.

I am experienced in working with individuals, couples, and group therapy.  I typically work with adults seeking trauma treatment. 

I get it, life can be hard! It can be frustrating, and unfair... Shitty!
When you look in the mirror, who do you see?

When you look in the mirror, who do you see?

  • Can’t trust or get close to anyone. 

  • Struggling with self-esteem and boundaries.

  • History of unstable, toxic, or failed relationships. 

  • Emotion regulation, what’s that? You stuff it down, blow it up, can’t get out of bed, or anxiety is off the charts.

  • Drugs and/or alcohol seem to make it all stop or go away. The only way to forget for a while.

  • The invisible scars of military life; the shit won’t turn off. A car backfires, nightmares, cars on the side of the road; nothing feels safe. The anger inside raging, the guilt gnawing. And the same damn questions and thoughts repeat in your head; why am I the one that came home, what could I have done differently, where do I fit in now.

  • The daily grind as a 1st responder can make you feel like Jekyll and Hyde sometimes, bouncing between your “shift” and “life” identities. Dark humor, numbness, and checking out are some of the ways we’ve learned to cope, and not everyone gets that. Family, friends, and society expect us to just deal with it and be “normal”, that just makes it worse. They don’t see the darkness; it’s not that easy to turn that shit off. Nightmares, flashbacks, negative thoughts, and triggers, haunt us. The invisible scars are real!!

  • The fear of failure is everywhere. Afraid of failing at work and making your boss angry; afraid of messing up on a project and disappointing people; afraid of making a mistake in front of friends, family, or even strangers who are watching. You’re tired of that inner voice saying “You’re not good enough”. You look in the mirror and see -worthless, shameful, unrealistic high standards.

Change is hard, asking for help can be even harder, and you need someone who gets that. That’s where I come in. Whether it’s trauma therapy, skills building, coping skills, or goal setting, we will come up with a plan that works for you. If you just need someone who will listen without judgment, that’s fine too. But whatever you need, you’re not going to get it unless you start. 

So… what are you waiting for?
