With over 5 years experience working with complex traumas, substance use disorders, unresolved grief, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, Bipolar I/II, personality disorders, and a number of other concerns- I can collaboratively walk you through your healing process.

I specialize in integrating Yoga informed, Somatic, and Mindfulness practices with traditional counseling theories.


Good therapy rests in the intersection between science and art. The “science” is evidence based approaches and art is who we are as therapists. I am a Florida native who grew up in Pinellas county. I spent over 14 years in hospitality as a waitress and bartender, only having attended school through the 8th grade. (I got my GED the year I was supposed to graduate highschool.) I started my education journey at Saint Petersburg College where I worked on Associate of Science credits with a concentration in Sustainability Management/ Environmental Science. I went on to obtain my Bachelors of Science in Human Services with the honor of Magna Cum Laude and Masters of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Springfield college of Tampa Bay.
