I have nearly 15 years of experience working in the social services field in various settings and roles which have given me insight into the wide variety of social services and mental health supports needed to strengthen individuals and families in our community. My clinical experiences working as a therapist and geriatric care manager in multi-disciplinary and private practice settings has provided me with a strong foundation to help others improve their overall wellness. My areas of interest are attachment issues, issues of aging and loss, geriatric counseling and consulting with families, women’s wellness issues, and strengthening relationship bonds with couples and families.

On a personal note, I am originally from Boca Raton, FL and when I am not working I can be found spending with my husband and two children, family, and friends, cooking, or enjoying the outdoors. My journey into marriage and parenthood have brought be invaluable, firsthand experience which I utilize in helping others deepen their understanding of themselves while strengthening their connection to others to live a meaningful and fulfilling life.
