My experience includes counseling individuals (all ages), couples and families. Teamwork with those most important to my clients is essential.

Early in my career I worked in an in-patient psychiatric hospital with severely ill patients. This experience helps me understand the importance of having a plan for my clients’ personal safety and when it is time to transition from outpatient to an inpatient setting. My volunteer work has also included working with the incarcerated population.
Mind & Body Online Counselor
Since 2010 I have been a certified yoga instructor incorporating the tools of mind and body wellness as a counselor. Utilizing breath work as well as mindfulness and meditation techniques promote balance and stability.
In recent years I have worked as a military family life counselor. I provided non-medical counseling to service members and their families, helping to improve resiliency, relationships and maintain peak performance. Working on military bases around the world and in Florida has broadened my perspective of developing wellness in a variety of places and circumstances.
