Biography


I am so incredibly excited to be teaching this semester and look forward to many other teaching opportunities to come.  I feel so blessed at being able to pass along my love of learning to others and in return, I learn something new from my students every day . My full time profession is as the Assistant Clinical Director and Continuing Education Director of Lifespan Services, Inc. I am graduate of Argosy University with a Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling with additional coursework in Marriage and Family Therapy. I completed my undergraduate work at the University of Tampa with a major in Psychology and minor in Sociology.

In addition, I wear another hat as a student as I am currently perusing a doctoral degree in Counselor Education and Supervision at Argosy University Tampa. I have been  working with children, adolescents, and families in various settings such as the Pasco County District School Board, the Department of Children and Families as a family Case Manager, and Sunrise of Pasco Domestic Violence Center. Currently I provide mental health counseling services for individuals, couples, families, adults, and adolescents (10 and older), and lead several therapy and psychoeducation groups (services in both English and Spanish). My newest venture has also been my most rewarding, as the mom of Chloe (2 year-old canine), who serves as my co therapist in training as I hope to continue using Animal Assisted Therapy as an enhancement to my psychotherapy practice.

 

To learn is to change. Education is a process that changes the learner - George B. Leonard
