SERVICES I OFFER
With You Every Step of the Way
Find and Live Your Truth
Hi and welcome to my website! I’m a Florida Licensed Psychotherapist and PhD in Clinical Psychology. My office is a relaxed, private office located in a downtown neighborhood between Winter Park and College Park, FL. Just a brief introduction so you know some things about my professional background and academic preparation.
I studied psychoanalysis and the analytic philosophy of Carl Jung at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Carpinteria, California, and obtained my doctorate in 2016. I am a certified Kundalini yoga teacher, and incorporate contemplative/meditative practices and Buddhist principles of mindfulness, presence, and attuned body-centered awareness into my work with clients. I am currently embarking on a more in-depth study of Buddhist philosophy and 'Universal Unwholesome Mind Conditioners’—which refer to mental tendencies/ aspects-of-mind that can be transcended through meditation.
Near and dear to my heart is working with sacred plant medicines. I offer pre- and post-ceremony integration therapy as part of my private practice, for those who are working with healing plant medicines or for those considering this path for expansion or healing. In my 20’s I began a 5-year study of the spiritual philosophy of A Course in Miracles. This desire for spiritual growth and life-long learning led to my academic training at Pacifica Graduate Institute with an emphasis in Archetypal/Jungian Psychology and Freudian Psychoanalysis. I was recently added as one of the Psychedelic Integration Therapists with MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies)—and am listed on their website www.maps.org
I am here to help guide you through life’s most complex and challenging obstacles, and truly care about your unique life path and personal growth. I provide confidential counseling in an intimate, professional setting close to downtown Orlando. Since 2016, I have provided a number of specialized therapeutic services to those dealing with challenging life experiences, and consider our work together an honor and a sacred privilege. Get in touch with me today to schedule a time to come in and begin your journey toward wholeness.

Self-love is the key to wholeness
Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, or major life changes? There comes a time when we need some help from a caring professional to help cope with many of life’s challenges. I’m a licensed Psychotherapist in the downtown Orlando area, and I’d love to help you on your journey toward healing and self-discovery.
Since opening the doors of my practice in 2016, I have provided clients in central Florida with a wide range of psychological services. Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to guide you through any obstacles you may face. My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply, find your life’s purpose and support you in living in authentic alignment with your true self.
Journeys bring power and love back into you. If you can’t go somewhere, move in the passageways of the self. They are like shafts of light, always changing, and you change when you explore them.
A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
Personalized Attention for All Your Needs
I implement a variety of psychotherapy approaches to encourage deeper self-understanding, and to support you in your journey toward wholeness, self-acceptance, and self-love. My approach infuses ideologies drawn from depth psychologies to bring fresh insight to your ever-changing life situation. It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that is a co-creation between client and therapist. But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.
