My Approach to Helping

I love what I do and take it very seriously. I am committed to doing the very best job I can to help my clients overcome their personal difficulties and become the person they always knew they could be if they could only find a way. Helping people find that way is what I consider to be my primary job. I tailor each client's therapy to their own unique situation and personal goals.. I utilize a wide-range of therapeutic approaches, specifically designed to meet the needs of each individual client. I also offer a variety of treatment options to fit each client’s schedule and goals. Due to Covid-19, I am currently offering only Online-Virtual and Telephone sessions, which most insurance are now covering. Sessions can be scheduled 24-7, round-the-clock, to fit everyone’s schedule. You can call or text me directly 24-7 at (954) 592-4886 to either make your first appointment or speak to me for a free 20-minute telephone consultation. I really look forward to speaking with you, helping you through the hardest times in your life, watching you make great strides & celebrating your accomplishments.
