About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida with a Master's in Social Work from Saint Leo University and a Bachelor's in Psychology from USF Sarasota-Manatee. I specialize in working with older children, teens, and adults in helping them navigate day-to-day stressors, as well as any other challenges life may throw their way. I seek to provide therapy using a trauma-informed, neuro-diversity affirming, and individualized approach. I work closely with clients on creating courses of treatment that blend practical solutions, skill-building, distress tolerance, and more. I use a combination of techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, mindfulness, and other holistic approaches in order to find what works best for my clients.
