My Approach to Helping
Let's partner together to help you find the solutions you seek! You already have the answers within you and may only need a new roadmap and toolkit to achieve different outcomes in your life. My goal as a collaborative, mindfulness-based therapist is to help you identify your strengths, build strong coping and resiliency skills, and advocate for yourself in ways that help you feel empowered and fearless when addressing life's challenges. I believe in a positive psychology approach that motivates you to be your own internal champion. I use a combination of therapies to ensure you receive a tailored approach to wellness.
More Info About My Practice
I invite you to call me today, while you are thinking about making changes in your life. Since it's important to determine if we're a good fit, I offer complimentary initial phone calls to discuss your counseling or coaching goals. My counseling style is all about building strong relationships. That's why I offer 90-minute sessions rather than the 50-minute hour, to ensure you have sufficient time to fully express and explore. My fees range from $230 to $300 depending on the services sought. Between-session phone consults are always complimentary for active clients when kept under 15 minutes. My practice is a self-pay practice. Specialty areas include: Certified in Accelerated Resolution Therapy to quickly resolve traumatic issues and other behavioral health and professional peak performance concerns; researcher at the University of South Florida studying the effects of Accelerated Resolution Therapy on combat-related trauma and military sexual trauma; author and subject matter expert on PTSD; integrative, empathic therapist combining over 30 years of knowledge in mind-body-spirit therapies for balanced living; qigong practitioner; aromatherapist; and specialist in brief, solution-focused therapies. As a former senior corporate executive and business owner, I combine these years of empirical experience with evidence-based therapies to serve the needs of executives and medical and behavioral health practitioners seeking a confidential space to decompress and address personal or career issues.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I specialize in stress, anxiety, and worry, and recurring career-related challenges. I offer advanced therapeutic techniques to combat the effects of trauma and other life-changing events. My interventions are grounded in mindfulness-based therapies. I offer a ZenDen experience which includes aromatherapy, meditation, and deep relaxation. Call for details. I work with other therapists and executives to help each achieve wellbeing in their own lives. I also introduce what I term "LivingLab" experiences, where clients are offered tools and techniques to incorporate into their between-session reality to fast-forward their growth potential. The practice is an integrative, holistic, experience where you, my valued client, will feel heard, appreciated, and respected. Thank you, in advance, for considering me as your counselor, coach, and trusted "advisor." Wishing you sustained wellbeing.
