My Approach to Helping

I am someone who will meet you where you are; I will take the time to learn about you so that I can best help you in reaching your goals. I am a catalyst for your healing process.

I have been practicing as a mental health therapist since 1998 and received my original license in 2003; I have also been licensed as a clinical addictions’ counselor since 2010. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques and rational emotive behavioral therapy (REBT) to challenge negative thoughts and to create current, supportive self-statements that allow an individual to live a self-fulfilling lifestyle. I am also practicing eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR) to assist clients in moving through emotional expression and change the self’s core belief. I utilize dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) to assist people in learning how to manage intense emotional responses.

I have extensive experience working with individuals with traumatic histories and require assistance in leaving the past behind them and creating a mind body experience that supports who they are developing into as individuals. I work well with individuals who are transitioning into adulthood and struggling with emotional development; problem solving; learning how to belong rather than settling for "fitting in." Individuals who want to learn how to become "unstuck" in memories that need to be processed in order to let go.

Trauma comes in many forms and sizes, and it changes how the way the brain functions, how memories are kept and how memories can cause problems in present situations. Learning to let go of the emotional impact of those memories is the key to healing.

More Info About My Practice

I am only providing telehealth services to allow individuals to receive mental health services in an alternative method and I am providing Telehealth services through-out the state of Florida.

Please check with your insurance company to determine if your plan covers this service. I also accept self-pay clients. Email me if you have any questions.

I utilize Simple Practice for managing my practice, which includes scheduling and payments, as well as initial documentation being sent thru the client portal. It is an electronic health system that is HIPAA compliant and provides a telehealth platform.

When you reach out to me, I will send you information about Simple Practice Telehealth and Simple Practice Client Portal to allow you to become familiar with the platform.

What Makes up a Problem?

A problem is when we are no longer able to function on a daily basis; when we take short cuts that cause more pain or suffering rather than helping the self; when we can no longer make effective decisions that benefit us as an individual; when we are feeling overwhelmed with emotions and do not know how to sort them out.
I enjoy helping individuals move from the contemplative stage of change to the maintenance stage of change so that they are the ones managing their own lives... not the events surrounding them.

Groups I Work With

    “Owning our story and loving ourselves through the process is the bravest thing we will ever do.” (Brene Brown).

    I would like to be able to help you define your story and learn to love yourself to your fullest capability so that you can also learn how to allow others to love you. To find your center and allow yourself to fill your cup with your own greatness and allow others to benefit from what overflows from the cup. To learn how to express your needs wants without fear or intimidation and to learn how to fulfill those needswants without worrying about the other people in your life. To learn your value and self-efficacy.

    I enjoy working with individuals who want to change something and may need a bit of help figuring out what that “something” is. To help people to learn how to stop worrying about what they cannot control and to help them learn how to focus on where their true power lies. To assist in the process of achieving emotional autonomy and maturity. I have extensive experience working with young adults who are transitioning into adulthood and women’s issues. But I essentially work well with anyone who is open to learning more about themselves and willing to challenge the self to grow and heal.
