Born in culturally diverse Miami, Florida, I attended a performing arts middle school, high school and college at DePaul University's Theater School, where self-expression was fostered through creative thinking and play. I received my graduate degree in Clinical Community Counseling with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Acting. With a passion for the study of people, I've shaped my professional career around healing through self-reflection, connectedness, and motivating others to step into their purpose.
My clinical experience ranges from university career counseling, to developing and leading groups for adults navigating relationships, divorce and separation, to parenting challenges, to perinatal concerns. In a prior organization, I was the go-to therapist for LGBTQIA identified clients. Practicing from a trauma informed lens, I greatly enjoy working with children, families, and adults on attachment related issues, stress reduction, developing healthy boundaries, life transitions, and understanding one's own needs.
Throughout my career, I have witnessed first-hand the human need for acceptance and belonging, and have dedicated my life to helping facilitate that connection within oneself and with others. While I use a variety of evidence-based clinical interventions and modalities, I am most successful at facilitating growth through the use of play and laughter, as I believe that true joy is the best treatment for the human spirit.
