Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. Originally from New York, I have been licensed since 2011. I also enjoy supervising therapists who are striving to achieve licensure. I specialize in working with trauma, addiction, anxiety, depression, relationship issues & overall well-being.
For over a decade, I have developed a passion for being present with people in their journey toward healing. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is one of the most powerful tools for change to take place. Each person is unique. We will work closely together to uncover what it is that works best for you in reaching your goals.
Therapy focuses on moving clients who feel stuck or who are not experiencing life to the fullest, toward a more meaningful relationship with self and others. Clients are guided to reconnect with themselves while in a safe and supportive environment. We will take a look at possible unresolved issues from the past and what is going on underneath the surface of the current symptoms bringing each individual client to counseling. I strive to empower my clients by installing the belief that they are worthy, lovable, and good enough.
There are many benefits to our overall well-being when we commit to meeting with a licensed therapist. Understanding our emotions, finding balance, and a deeper connection with oneself allows us to better navigate life’s ups and downs. Building self-awareness and self-compassion grants us the freedom to notice our purpose and improve our outlook on life.
Restore hope. Depression, anxiety & stress are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. I specialize in bringing awareness to the renewable purpose that exists within each individual. Using a variety of modalities that best fit your needs, I will work with you to help you recover motivation, perspective, joy, and passion. Learn how to let go of fears and doubts while embracing self acceptance and wholeness.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Fear, shame, pain, and sadness are a few emotions that are a result of experiencing trauma. Stress, difficulty concentrating, and an inability to maintain healthy relationships can suggest there is unresolved trauma from your past, creating issues in your life today. As the therapeutic relationship builds, we will walk through your journey together. In therapy, I will guide you in learning how to build what it is you need to be able to live the life you want. Not letting your past define you. I am trained in Post Induction Therapy and EMDR.
Recovery and a meaningful life after addiction is possible. We will look closely at the underlying causes of your addiction and the symptoms that you face. I will assist you in discovering why you turn to your addiction as a solution to cope with, and often times in an effort to mask, a bigger problem. My hope is to lead you in finding a path to maintaining recovery. We will aim to accentuate the light that healing creates, rather than the shadows that addiction can cast.

Post Induction Therapy looks at the way that early childhood traumas can lead to relationship issues, maladaptive behavior, and difficulties connecting with oneself in adulthood. Extended sessions for Inner Child and Feeling Reduction work are available for those who are ready to engage in deeper trauma work. In an experiential process, the client will explore their early history in their family of origin, and identify any traumatic, less than nurturing, experiences and associated feelings. The client will then be guided and supported through a specific series of experiential therapeutic processes’ to help identify and heal childhood relational trauma. In a safe and nurturing environment, clients release painful emotions, connect with their inherent worth, connect with personal power, and learn to reparent themselves.
