I have always been surrounded by mental health, personal and professional experiences. In high school I made the decision to work towards a career helping people through their struggles. As many of us in this profession do, I wanted to understand the experiences I’ve had in my own life and learn how to help others prevent or heal from trauma and adversities.
I went to Nova Southeastern University and graduated with a MS in Mental Health Counseling. I completed an internship while in school, working with children and families in a very under served area. I learned so much about how and why families and children struggle. I learned about generational trauma and how it affects future generations, in ways such as unhealthy attachment styles, inadequate skills to emotionally regulate, substance abuse, domestic violence, etc. After that experience, I knew I wanted to work with individuals & families and help them heal and become stronger.
I started my first job at a nonprofit and learned SO MUCH. I am so thankful for the supervisors and colleagues I had there. I went into homes, schools, libraries, wherever my clients could meet for sessions. I learned how to do therapy wherever there was space with whatever materials we had.
I worked with many clients over those years- some with specific, identifiable trauma and others who presented with behavioral/emotional symptoms. What I realized is that each and every child had some kind of trauma- and so did their parents. Trauma is all around us, conscious or unconscious.
I have grown so much in my profession and I continue to learn and teach others. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Traumatic Incident Reduction Facilitator, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, & an EMDR therapist. I am also a qualified supervisor for mental health counselors looking to become competent licensed professionals. I believe everyone deserves to live their best life- I hope I can help some of you achieve that life through therapy.
