Superpower: Creating a safe space, authentic, joyful, creative withchildren, open and honest. 

Seeking safety, connection, and acceptance is an inherent part of the human experience. The pursuit of these ideals is best facilitated through an empathetic and non-judgmental approach — the pathway to fulfilling our desires: to experience unconditional love, and to be truly heard. To foster personal growth, individuals require understanding and respect, unburdened by conditions. Here, you will discover that supportive environment.

As a conscientious therapist, my belief is anchored in recognizing individuals holistically —encompassing mind, body, and spirit. Rather than viewing people through one lens, I advocate for seeing each person as a human with untapped potential and purpose. My dedication lies in nurturing the well-being of children, adolescents, and young adults. I bring experience in working with individuals diagnosed with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. My therapeutic approach integrates various evidence-based modalities, including Play Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

My values center around collaboration, honesty, authenticity, and genuine connection. I am creative, joyful, and love to laugh! Presently, I am a student intern under the guidance of Dr. Vassilia Binensztok as I progress through my internship. As a student at Palm Beach Atlantic University, I also offer Christian Counseling for those who seek it.

During my time away from the office, I engage in activities such as long walks, listening to podcasts, camping, fishing, playing board games, and cherishing quality moments with loved ones.
