My Approach to Helping

My goal is not to keep you in therapy as long as possible, but instead to help you develop tools to navigate your struggles most effectively and essentially become your own therapist. I have over 10 years of experience in the field of mental health and currently own a private practice as a psychotherapist in Florida.  I understand that each person and situation is unique, and adapt my approach to help most effectively. 

I have experience treating clients with a wide range of concerns. Some issues I treat include depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, stress, addiction, personality disorders, mood disorders and behavioral issues. I have worked with people of many different racial, cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and strive to tailor my approach to each individual person's needs and circumstances. I I help people process their emotions surrounding various life situations in therapy.

I love helping and truly care about others.  You will feel the warmth and compassion in my approach. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I don't focus on negative labeling or solely on diagnosis. Instead, I focus on helping people understand their emotional concerns, make peace with their feelings and assist them in healing and implementing useful solutions.

My approach is holistic and combines cognitive-behavioral therapy (a focus on the connection between thoughts, feelings and behavior) and dialectical-behavioral therapy (practical techniques for learning mindfulness, improving interpersonal relationships, regulating emotion and tolerating distress). I also utilize some motivational interviewing techniques (helping individuals struggling with making decisions and those dealing with addiction) and draw from psychoanalytic theory to explore how unconscious forces and childhood experiences may be impacting peoples lives presently.

I also address the mind body connection by teaching relaxation and breathwork techniques. A major focus of my work also involves helping people to build more positive relationships with themselves. Every person benefits from a slightly different technique. I take the time to get to know people and equip them with the tools which will be most helpful to them.

I will tailor our conversations, and your treatment, to meet your unique and specific needs. We will focus on what you want to, in order to get you feeling better as quickly and sustainably as possible.

Investing in your well-being through therapy can lead to a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life. If you are ready to try therapy, I am here to help you.

More Info About My Practice

All of my therapy sessions are offered via Telehealth for convenience- video and phone session options available. I use Zoom, Whatsapp Video, and Skype to meet with clients. I offer flexible evening and weekend hours.

I offer free initial consultation sessions to individuals interested in exploring therapy. This provides you with an opportunity to get to know me, and ask any questions you may have to decide whether work with me will be helpful.

You won't pay anything upfront, and if you feel that work with me may not be the best fit, I am happy to help you find someone else who may be more suited to your needs.

I'm sensitive to issues surrounding cost and have a select number of sessions designated for low income individuals. I am also able to offer some free sessions to people dealing with racial ethnic related trauma. I believe all people deserve access to quality mental healthcare services. Please reach out to me if I can help you.
