My Approach to Helping
Are you having difficulty with your child or teenager?
Maybe you are feeling frustrated or discouraged and don't know where to go; there is hope. I specialize in working with children and teens struggling with behavioral problems, depression, anxiety, family issues, self-esteem, or who have experienced a traumatic event.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who enjoys working with children, adolescents, and families on many issues including behavioral problems, trauma, anxiety, depression, ADHD and helping fix flawed family relationships. I believe in working together with the family to develop the best treatment method for each client. It is also so important for the therapist and client to develop a strong therapeutic relationship. My therapeutic style is welcoming, empathic, supportive, safe, and nonjudgmental. I have experience with evidence-based treatment including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). I also have experience with school-based issues as well. I was a former school counselor for eight years in elementary school providing behavioral interventions for children with ADHD and mood disorders. I also have extensive experience working in the foster care system as a case manager, placement specialist as well as an in-home counselor. I am also a Clinical Supervisor recognized by the State of Florida as a Mental Health Supervisor for LMHC licensure. Call or email me right now to set up your first appointment. I look forward to hearing from you!
