Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in Gainesville, Florida

Education and Professional Experience
I received my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University. I have enjoyed working in private practice settings with diverse populations in Miami and Gainesville, Florida. My work has focused on counseling children, teens, and adults. Prior to counseling, I served as an educator for four years, teaching 5th and 6th-grade students. As an educator, I was able to work collaboratively with students, faculty, parents, and the community, which only enhanced this skill as a counselor.
I currently work with teenagers (ages 15+), college students, and adults in individual therapy. I specialize in helping my clients navigate changes in their life, and mental health symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. With guidance, strategies, and support, you can achieve the life you have envisioned for yourself. Together we can work through your life challenges, build confidence, and increase awareness and understanding of your situation. We can utilize tools to decrease overthinking, strengthen your support system, and transform your way of thinking. We will build on the sense of empowerment that is already within you. I believe that our life experiences, identity, belief systems, and culture makes us who we are. Our work together will incorporate these experiences and beliefs. Going to therapy is an important step and I look forward to working with and supporting you on your journey to overall wellness!
Approach to Wellness
I am a firm believer in living your best life! Doing what makes me happy is how I live MY best life. Happiness to me includes spending time with friends and family and working out at Orange Theory Fitness. I am from Jamaica, so I am in my happy place when I am by the water. I make time to travel or spend time at the beach whenever possible. I consider myself a “foodie” and find joy in trying as many different types of foods as I can. Being able to prioritize, and make time for my favorite things, is how I embody living my best life!
