I graduated from the University of South Florida with a Masters in Social work. My aim was to work in a private practice setting where I could use my skills to help adults and children reach their fullest potential. I have been working in private practice in Pinellas County for 27 years specializing in children ages 2 to 11 and adults. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, trained as a play therapist and a cognitive behavioral therapist. I am also a certified workshop leader of The Incredible Years. My training also includes Level 1 and 2 in the Gottman Method of Couples Therapy. I focus on using evidence-based treatments with informed consent from my clients. I enjoy working with parents, children, and schools to come to the best result for school-age children and their families. I worked collaboratively with my clients to tailor a treatment plan to their presenting problem and implementing the most effective evidence passed methods and their strengths. I specialize in treating children with anxiety, behavioral and mood difficulties, helping parents with parent training, and adults in the following areas; anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, mood disorders including bipolar disorder, depression, and trauma. I do individual, couples, and family therapy sessions. I would be honored to work with you and/or your child.
