I come from a business background, but have had a lifelong passion for learning about and applying psychology to everyday problems. This interest compelled me to seek new degree and career in the field. I am so glad I did! My skills and temperament are perfect for the work I do and the way I work. Good for me and great for my clients.
When asked who I like to work with and who makes a good fit for my style of counseling, I often reply this way: Are you worn out? Are you losing hope? Do you need someone in your corner? If so, you are probably feeling exhausted and overwhelmed, maybe even despairing. I work with adults who are seeking relief from these distressing emotions, and from sleepless nights, endless worry, isolation, and mood swings.
I have specialty training in trauma such as sexual assault, childhood abuse, and combat-related trauma. I also specialize in self-esteem issues which are highly linked to traumatic backgrounds. I use evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral therapies involving body, mind, and spirit for a whole-person integrated approach to wellness.
My clients tell me I build rapport quickly, providing for efficient and effective goals attainment in therapy. My style is both empathetic and direct, which teaches my clients to find balance between being too hard on themselves or letting themselves off too easily, getting stuck in the status quo. If that is you, please take good care of yourself and start your healing process. You're worth it.
I am only licensed to perform therapy in the state of Florida, USA.
