About me

Hi! My name is Manuela and I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida. I am passionate about helping individuals unpack and work through some of the things that keep them stuck in negative cycles.

Sometimes it feels like you are making progress but then fall back into the same unhealthy patterns. This can bring feelings of frustration, irritability, guilt, shame, and other emotions accompanied with the belief that things will never change or that you can’t change.​This sometimes will lead to depression and just a general dissatisfaction with life. You feel like you’ve lost your spark.

​Let’s dig deep, and unpack the stories you are telling yourself about yourself and about others. Let’s work on getting you to a place where you can see things clearly and are able to own your emotions…not let them own you.

​This stuff can be so hard! Some of us live our lives carrying hurt and pain that we have never shared with another person. Or perhaps you tried to share it and were minimized or dismissed. That hurt won’t heal if you keep it all inside and never confront it. We cannot heal what remains hidden.

​I am also able to integrate faith in our work together. When utilizing a faith-based approach, I combine clinical and psychological perspectives with wisdom found throughout Scripture, only if it is relevant and appropriate to your circumstance.

Reaching out for help takes so much courage and vulnerability, and it can be really scary. I want you to know that when we work together, I will do everything in my power to create a sense of safety and trust so that you feel comfortable bringing all of your "stuff" to our sessions. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you. Let’s work on figuring out those hard places where you seem to get stuck and tackle those together.

I look forward to working with you!

Manuela is amazing! Very understanding and wise. She listens well and gives excellent, practical tools that you can use. I've grown so much with her help and couldn't recommend her more. Definitely the best therapist I have ever had!

Manuela is a fantastic therapist. She has found the balance between active listening and impartial feedback. Manuela also makes sure that the most important things are addressed first. Lastly, she makes sure that the discussion is focused while still allowing for the sessions to flow naturally.
