Hi!

I have worked with children, adolescents and families for over 9 yrs providing counseling  in-home, outpatient,  inpatient settings and has worked as a Clinical Director at the Manatee Juvenile Detention Center for 3 yrs.

I assist in the process of teaching adolescents in learning how to develop the emotional skills that will transform their lives and relationships. Along with enhancing parent-child relationships.
