WELCOME!
In 2016, I founded NWFL Cares, Inc., a Florida non-profit company, to provide social work services and Mental Health First Aid trainings.  Experience as a licensed psychotherapist brings a richness to Mental Health First Aid trainings, I believe deepening my ability to tailor an evidence based curriculum to meet various training needs.  Especially pertinent to training groups for continuing education, such as:
  • Lawyers
  • Nursing professionals including ARNP, CNS, LPN, RN, CNA, Respiratory Therapist, Dietician, Nutritionist, Midwife
  • Pharmacists
  • Human Resource Professionals
As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I am licensed in the State of Florida to assess, diagnose and treat mental health conditions. Helping people make positive changes toward wellness is my goal.  This could be in the form of providing therapy, speaking to a community group, or providing Mental Health First Aid training...offering "lightbulb moments" in a variety of ways.
 
My experience and training enables me to offer adoption home studies, geriatric care management, consultations for integrated care, and collaborative law (private divorce)
facilitation. 
 
I have a small, private office setting--please contact me directly to discuss how I might be of assistance.
