I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) and Registered Play Therapist (RPT). While working with many children & families over the past 20 years, I have provided a variety of counseling and consultation services to individuals and families.

I have a lifelong passion for working with children and adults, as well as extensive training in play therapy, including a graduate certificate in play therapy from UCF. I am also a registered play therapist. I understand that play is the language children use to communicate, and this language can help them in counseling. Play therapy works with children and adolescents, and even with adults. This non-directive approach helps individuals freely express themselves.

I have worked as an adoption counselor and assisted many families through their adoption journey and provided adoption support as well as home studies & post placement supervision and support to foster children and their emotional needs. Through my experiences in both state and private agencies, I have honed the skills necessary to prepare families for home studies, adoption, post-placement supervision, and other adoption-related concerns. Brevard Counseling is licensed by DCF as a child adoption placement agency.

I offer family and individual counseling, as well as expressive art and play therapy. I have helped many children of all ages regulate their emotions and improve coping skills. I am also trained in child-parent relationship therapy (CPRT) and hypnotherapy.
