Marriage & Family Therapy
My experience goes back long before I ever received a degree as a therapist. I began working at an adolescent treatment facility as paraprofessional staff member starting at the age of 17. That facility addressed addiction and behavioral issues in a semi-residential setting.
I have since graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelors in Psychology, a Masters in Counselor Education in the track of Mental Health Counseling, and a Specialist Degree in Counselor Education in the track of Marriage and Family Therapy. During my graduate program, I interned at several facilities: a domestic violence shelter for women and their families, a psychiatric hospital where I rotated between all floors (acute, children's, adult dual diagnosis, and adult addictions unit), and a counseling center that worked with children at schools and at home with their families.
My post-graduate work has included: in-home therapy with children being fostered with relatives; office-based therapy with families undergoing separation and divorce; office based work working with children, teens and their families on a variety of issues; and bereavement counseling with adults and teens. Currently, I conduct in-office counseling for individuals, couples, and families working on a variety of issues. During many of these experiences, I have had the privilege of working with individuals, couples, families, groups, and of conducting presentations in the community on various topics of interest. It has been my pleasure to work with people of many different ages, genders, cultures, ethnicities, religions, and sexual orientations.
My private practice is a work of love for what I do and all that I am becoming. I am grateful to be involved with many other helping professionals who grace me with their strength and knowledge and whom help me along the way to realize my dreams and potential. I participate voluntarily in paid clinical supervision that I obtain from a master licensed therapist on an as needed basis to ensure that I am at my best. I also participate in peer group on a regular basis to further ensure that I am at my best and offering my wisdom to others in the field. I am also involved in professional organizations and attend as many trainings as I possibly can as I believe staying current and staying stimulated is important. I feel fortunate to have gained such varied experiences, and appreciate how these experiences have given me a wider range of knowledge.
Some of training includes but is not limited to: Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy - learn more here (2 day Intro taken in 11/2014, 4 day Externship taken 5/20-24/15, EFT Core Skills Training weekends taken 6/26/2015, 8/2015, 10/2015, 1/2016, and 3/2016), EFT Facing the Dragon Together - Working with traumatized couples 5/2016, EFFT (Emotionally Focused Family Therapy) 2/2017 and still receiving current supervision towards EFT certification (coming soon); Gottman's Couple Therapy Level I (2012) & Level II (2013); Flexible CBT (2012); Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Clinical Hypnosis (2006/2007, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, & 2016) PREP®: The Prevention & Relationship Enhancement Program (certified 2008); levels 1 & 2 of Rapid Trauma Resolution (2006/2007); Critical Incident Stress Debriefing/CISD(2006); and Red Cross Disaster Response Training/ Psychological First Aid (2006).
I truly enjoy the learning/CEUs and advancing myself professionally. My training hours consistently have exceeded the amount needed for my LMFT, LMHC, and NCC credentials. I am engaged locally in 2 professional peer groups that both meet once a month and am regularly engaged in paid supervision from master therapist as I enjoy learning all I can in order to better serve my clients.

No malpractice history found for Florida.
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct.You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
Healthgrades reports details of a doctor’s malpractice history when the doctor has at least one closed medical malpractice claim within the last five years, even if he or she no longer practices in that state.
Healthgrades collects malpractice information from California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia. If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact your quality of care. Sometimes multiple states report the same claim. If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades non-disciplinary board action history go?
