I graduated from the University of South Florida with my masters in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling. I also received my bachelor's degree in psychology from USF, and also have my Child Developmental Associates. While in undergrad I have worked with a young woman who has seizures, Cerebral Palsy, and autism. I worked as a preschool teacher for 4 years with children as young as 8 weeks old to 5 years of age. Currently I work as a Clinical Counselor for Children s Home Society where I counsel children, adolescents and adults working on issues ranging from but not limited to infant mental health, adjustment disorder, depression, anxiety, and post traumatic stress disorder. In the past I worked as A Residential Substance Abuse Therapist with Adolescents. I enjoy doing creative and educational activities with children, including teaching Spanish, Sign Language, painting/arts and crafts and outdoor activities. I get involved with the activities and try to ensure that the kids I am looking after have fun, while still remaining safe.
I am certified in Marriage and Family Therapy and have training in infant mental health. I also have completed ITERS training. I have my 45-clock hours - introductory child care training.
