About Me

As a Florida native, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two children, exploring our community, having fun at the beach, and discovering wildlife in our parks.

My philosophy of care emphasizes a strengths-based approach to evaluation and treatment planning. I believe that best outcomes can be achieved by leveraging one’s talents and abilities.

In addition to my clinical work, I enjoy teaching, supervising, and training others, as I am passionate about helping others to become effective, quality health care providers.
