I am a Tampa Palms based Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and was born into a military family. I completed my Masters in Clinical Social Work from the University of Tennessee in 2003.  Over the years, I have developed a unique combination of cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and biofeedback based methods to help achieve awareness of emotions which can help to achieve a balanced life.

In my 13 years of experience, I have worked with hundreds of patients from all walks of life, which has provided a deep insight and a practical view of the problems people are facing in their contemporary times, with regards to their professional and personal life. Whether it is depression due to lack of respect and recognition at work, death of a close family member, emotional distress due to separation, addiction, hypersensitivity, obsessive compulsive disorder, loss of job, or just any other issues that is affecting your mental health negatively.

My approach towards counseling is collaborative with my clients and based on Mindfulness based Cognitive Therapy. I use highly sensitive body sensors , biofeedback, to measure the stress levels in the human body to give my clients ease in understanding how to lower emotional triggers and gain body control.  It helps to balance the nervous system using the 3 P's to change: Patience, Persistence, and Practice.
