Tell us about your education and professional counseling experience.
I attend the University of Central Florida where I got my bachelors in Psychology. Then I went to Lesley University where I got my master’s in mental health counseling with specialization in art therapy.
What would you consider your specialties in counseling?
Kids, teenagers, and young adults struggling with depression, anxiety, eating disorder, self-esteem issues, and self-harm.
Why did you decide to become a counselor?
I decided to become a counselor because I have always had a heart for listen to and helping people navigate life’s difficulties.
What, in your opinion, are the benefits of counseling?
Counseling is beneficial because it allows individuals to explore their emotions, fears, trauma etc. in a safe confidential environment and to challenge those emotions and self-deprecating behaviors.
What do you like to do for fun when you’re not counseling?
I really enjoy painting and drawing and I love going to Disney and being around my family.
