Counseling Services

I have an integrative approach to counseling in that I draw from different evidence-based therapeutic approaches to tailor treatment for clients. I value developing a supportive relationship with my clients and offer a safe non-judgemental environment. I take the time to really listen to my clients' concerns in order to understand their experiences and desires. I offer education about specific symptoms and explain what types of treatment or strategies might help their situation and why. I share strategies to alleviate symptoms and change problematic patterns. I also provide methods to structure goals into manageable action steps.


I primarily utilize cognitive behavioral therapies (CBT), including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), as well as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I also incorporate motivational interviewing, mindfulness, brief solution-focused strategies, and positive psychology practices. I monitor client progress towards their goals regularly during sessions in order to inform treatment strategies. My skill set is particularly specialized to work with children, teens, and young adults. 

Appointments are available in person at the office in St. Pete and via telehealth throughout the state of Florida.
