I am an experienced therapist who is committed to working with individuals dealing with many issues, including anxiety, depression, identity, trauma, and adjustment concerns. I help individuals longing for peace and seeking to resolve inner conflict by helping them gain true clarity and confidence in themselves. I support them in coping with the challenges that life undoubtedly throws at us, including managing and reducing fear and anxiety. Diverse and LGBTQ+ clients are welcome.

My name is Demetric and I am currently a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in the state of Florida and working towards clinical licensure. I graduated from the University of South Florida with my Master’s in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling in May of 2019.

While working with me, you can expect to be supported and encouraged as we collaborate on your new journey to achieving your goals. During our work together, you can expect to celebrate all of the “wins” in your life. We will focus on your strengths and use those strengths to get you on the path to a healthier and more sustainable well-being.

Taking the first step is always the hardest; however, you’ve already done that. So, take the next step towards achieving your goals and becoming the person you were always meant to be.
