Helping Children, Teens, & Adults Embrace Their Full Potential for a Thriving, Happy, and more Balanced Life!
Licensed Mental Health Counselor
In 2013, I graduated with a Masters of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. Here, I received extensive evidence based training for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play & Art therapy, Existential, and Solution Focused Approaches.
In 2008, I was top of my class and awarded a Bachelors in Psychology from FIU with a minor in business. I am also a professional member of the American Counseling Association. I continue to remain current on research based techniques with yearly training's and attending national & local conferences.
For over 10 years, my comprehensive experience in education, community based counseling services, and private settings have enabled me to successfully treat: anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, bullying, improving relationships, and divorce.
In opened Beyond-Counseling, furthering my mission towards helping others experience personal transformation in a safe and non-judgmental space. I want my client’s to feel accepted and know they are not alone on this journey.
Outside of my practice, I offer weekly TEEN TALK meetups to educate and support families on mental health concerns. Recently, I joined a community group practice called the “Revolutionary Group Practice.” As a powerhouse team of specialists, we aim to improve mental health in the community by providing a safe and supportive counseling environment utilizing best practices.
Just For Fun
I love being a kid at heart, exploring different beaches, snorkeling, scuba diving, and having a blast on the jet ski! I also have a deep quest for traveling the world, learning new cultures, foods, languages, and experiences.
My favorite pastime is being with my family, fiancé, and friends while listening to Bob Marley music. On the weekends, I enjoy playing with my rescue puppy, Sky and I also play co-ed beach volleyball! I enjoy helping preserve the earth by recycling daily and doing beach clean ups, as well.
