I have an undergraduate degree in sociology from the University of Florida and a master’s degree in mental health counseling at Nova Southeastern University in 2011. I am a licensed professional counselor (LPCC) in Kentucky and a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in the state of Florida.
My treatment approach involves the incorporation of various evidence-based theories and practices; most notably, and likely you've heard of, CBT and DBT. Seeking help can be intimidating, exploring hard topics is uncomfortable, being vulnerable may be a new experience. I focus on motivational enhancement strategies as means to address resistance to change. A collaborative approach between therapist and client can yield great progress, which I strive to provide. I maintain my clinical skills and knowledge through continued education courses, trainings and professional consultation.
