Addiction, depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable issues and emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, I am able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Counseling can be beneficial to individuals and couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Online sessions are held from the safety of your own home with both couples at a time that is convenient for you through our easy scheduling platform.
Supervision is the relationship between the qualified supervisor and intern that promotes the development of responsibility, skills, knowledge, attitudes and adherence to ethical, legal and regulatory standards in the practice of clinical social work, marriage and family therapy and mental health counseling. Supervision is contact between an intern and a supervisor during which the intern apprises the supervisor of the diagnosis and treatment of each client, client cases are discussed, the supervisor provides the intern with oversight and guidance in diagnosing, treating and dealing with clients, and the supervisor evaluates the intern’s performance.

Since 2015 I have been offering supervision for interns seeking licensure in the State of Florida. I have assisted multiple supervisees in strengthening their ethical, theoretical, and practical skills. Worked on guiding them to find their own clinical approach, and area of focus in their professional development.
Per Florida Statue 491.0045
The intern will need to work under a qualified supervisor for at least two years (100 weeks). At least 1,500 hours of psychotherapy must be performed during the supervision period. The intern will need at least an hour of supervision for every 15 hours of psychotherapy, with a minimum of one hour every two weeks.
The Florida Board allows for supervisor and intern to utilize face-to-face electronic methods (not telephone only communication) to conduct the supervisory sessions; however, the supervisor and intern must have in-person face-to-face contact for at least 50% of all of the interactions required. Prior to utilizing any online or interactive methods for supervision, the supervisor and the intern shall have at least one in-person face-to-face meeting.
Per Florida Statue 491.0045
Some supervision can take place in a group setting with up to six interns in a supervision session. However, group supervision hours must be alternated with individual supervision hours
