My Approach to Helping

Some days and weeks are harder than others, aren't they? You might feel stuck in life, caught up in constant worry, or down and depressed. Maybe you're here because you could use a little extra help getting through a tough time in life. Or maybe you have a hard time facing or making decisions, setting boundaries, or communicating your ideas. We've all been here at some point in life. I want you to know that you're not alone, and you're in the right place. Therapy can help, and I am here to support you through it.

I provide therapy for a wide range of personal needs with adults of all ages, adolescents, children, and families. While I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and posttraumatic stress, I can also assist with many related topics, so I encourage you to give me a call to see how I can help you. I strive to provide a safe, supportive environment for you to heal from and grow through whatever is holding you in place. I'm a firm believer in starting where you are and going at your pace, and your therapy experience will always be tailored specifically to you. We can have our sessions in my office in South Miami, and for adults I also offer online, video-conference style therapy (you may have heard it called "teletherapy"). This can help you to be able to fit therapy into a busy schedule or if you live somewhere in Florida where it's hard to access my actual office. Feel uncertain how you'd like this approach? Just let me know--we could hold our free initial consultation chat using this method so you can try it out!
