About Me

Thanks for taking the time to check out my website.   I truly believe that relationships don’t have to be painful and want to help you in your journey to finding more satisfaction and contentment.

I specialize in working in the following areas: helping couples with their relationships, including treating affairs, infidelity, and sexual issues.  I specialize in feeding and eating issues, issues around self esteem and body image. I specialize in helping those who are in the process of ending a relationship and moving forward with their lives.  I specialize in helping teens and 20 somethings to find themselves and successfully cope with anxiety and build relationships.

I know that it often takes alot to make that first step toward seeking help, so I make it my priority to make the process as comfortable and straightforward as possible.  Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.  You can reach me at (info@beachestherapyandcouples.com or (904) 662-6130).

To give you a bit of information about myself, I have been a practicing therapist for over 8 years, and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Florida (MT2819).  I have a doctorate in Social Work, and I focused my studies on the treatment of trauma. I hold two Master’s degrees: one in Marriage and Family Therapy from Auburn University, and a second Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Louisville.

Beyond practicing therapy, I teach college classes online to students throughout the country.  My research is published in peer reviewed journals and college textbooks.

My approach is collaborative; you are the expert on your experience!  I use several approaches including cognitive behavioral therapy, emotionally focused therapy, and dialectical-behavioral therapy.

This work is my passion as well as my vocation- if we can’t figure it out, I will try to connect you with someone who can!
