My Approach to Helping
Clients have often said, “I wish I found you sooner!” “I feel better with just a few sessions with you compared to years spent with another therapist,” “I love how present you are with me! "I am finally in love with myself!" “You’ve given me the courage to lead the life I want to live"
My approach is simple. I’ve found that therapy can work just as well in nature as in an office setting. One reason includes that you get to reconnect with yourself after a long day of work. Being in nature can help be a stress reliever. During outdoor therapy, both nature serves as a therapist to guide the client into healing. We may see dogs with their owners and other animals walking to remind us that we are all part of an ecosystem. Studies have shown that a simple walk in nature can reduce anxiety, keep your spirits high, and even improve memory. We can meet at Treasure Island or Maderia Beach or at John S. Taylor Park. I can even meet you at a dog park if you enjoy being close to other animals.
More Info About My Practice
I don’t accept insurances. I have a self-pay based practice.
I offer a free phone consultation to understand the issues your going through while asking you about the nature of the problems and to understand your financial situation. If by the end of the conversation you feel like working with me, We can set up an appointment together. You can also make an appointment directly from my homepage on my website if that works better for you.
The videos down below show you my speciality and the techniques I use to work with traumas.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
If you have unresolved trauma's that haven't been unpacked, I am passionate with diving in at your own pace to heal heavy topics such as sexual abuse as a child, surviving a single or multiple sexual assaults, violence while incarcerated, physical abuse, and narcissistic partners or parents as a child. If the movie "Mommie Dearest" or the book called "A Child Called It" sounds similar to your childhood or worse, I want to help make your adult life better.

I will give you support, gentle guidance when needed, and make you feel safe when mistakes are made. I will empower you and help you find new pathways to your roadblocks.
