I am a mental health counselor licensed in Florida with 14 years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings throughout my career, including corrections, outpatient, inpatient, intensive outpatient, partial hospitalization, and case management. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns and diagnoses, including adjustment disorders, mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, child and teen behavioral issues, relationship and family issues, parenting problems, drug and alcohol/co-occurring disorders, personalty disorders and severe, persistent mental illness. Other areas of expertise include stress management, anger management, communication problems, self esteem/confidence, decision making, and difficulty with coping skills.
My counseling style is collaborative and honest. I believe that every person has the ability to change the patterns and behaviors leading to dysfunction in their life. I also believe that every person can live a fulfilling life, even with mental health issues and past or current struggles. My goal is to provide an atmosphere where you feel supported, heard, and empowered. I utilize techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness, among others. I have attended advanced training in CBT and DBT. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
