"No matter how far life pushes you down, no matter how much you hurt, you can always bounce back."
I earned my doctorate in Counseling Psychology from the University of Tennessee and am a Certified Mental Performance Consultant for the Association for Applied Sport Psychology. I am Licensed as a Psychologist in both Florida (#10052) and Texas (#37228). I have been trained as a generalist, capable of working with individuals and couples who have a variety of concerns. My primary areas of expertise and interest are multiculturalism and diversity, peak performance, relationships, self-esteem and identity, and mood concerns.
While I generally identify as being humanistic and performance psychology-based, I integrate a number of systems and methods into my practice. I am largely influenced by relational-cultural, feminist/multicultural, experiential/Gestalt, and DBT-based theories. Advocacy is also an important part of my professional and personal worldview, and I strive to provide services that are non-discriminatory and nurturing of all aspects of diversity.
As a previous collegiate Division I Track & Field athlete, I earned Academic All-American (second team) honors and was a member of the Indoor National Championship 2009 Track & Field team at the University of Tennessee. I continue to stay highly active through yoga, running, swimming, paddleboarding, and traveling. On occasion I love bringing my 8 year-old Labrador to work too. After living and working in Texas for the past two years, I have recently relocated to Gainesville, FL and am looking forward to expanding my services here.
