About Me

Welcome,

I am an experienced Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Florida. As a counselor and a strong believer in the Christian faith and in the power of Jesus Christ, I truly believe that you have made the best decision in seeking help. Through faith and the art of counseling, I want to guide and support you on your journey. I have worked with children, teens, adults, couples, individuals and families who struggled with depression, anxiety, anger management, substance abuse and addiction, trauma, domestic violence, parent-child relationships, communication problems, eating disorders, grief and loss, personality disorders and so much more. I am also certified in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as a Lead Analyst working with children and teens, along with their families in the home, community and school, to address concerns related to their child's diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. In my work with clients, I like to use several therapeutic techniques, including some leading psychological modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Art and Play Therapy to ensure that your concerns are always addressed in a way that is most effective for you.

My role as your counselor is to guide you to become the best version of yourself. Healing requires determination, dedication, passion, and empathy and you will find all those within yourself once we begin to work together. As a counselor, I believe you are taking the right step towards a more fulfilling life. You are always welcome to message me anytime. I am here to help and guide you through this journey.

I look forward to working with you.

Stephanie, is consistent even when I'm not! She checks on me and keeps her word! That means a lot
