About Me

It takes courage to admit that your life is not fulfilling and that you are not happy with your life. And even more courage to take the first steps towards making a change. If you are ready to take those steps I am here to support and empower you on your journey.

My counseling style is interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in labels. My approach is eclectic in that I combine various techniques to meet the client where they are. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I am a licensed mental health counselor in the State of Florida. I have over 10 years of experience working as a therapist in a variety of different environments. I have worked with clients suffering from a wide range of concerns including but not limited to depression, anxiety and ADHD. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma, sexual trauma or emotional abuse.

I like to use mindfulness based practices to increase a personal awareness, cultivate compassion, build resiliency and help you to stay grounded in the present moment.

I look forward to working with you!

Ms. Cecile is very understanding. She offers different ways to better assist me and my needs. I love that she shows she really cares. She is not judge mental. Having her as a therapist is one of the most greatest things I’ve done.

Cecile has been such a great help to me these past months. She’s always been there to listen and suggest great ways that improve my situation. She lets you set the pace for the sessions, she’s very respectful and I’ve never felt judged at all. Because of this, I’ve been able to open up and process some of the hardest moments in my life. I’m in a way better place now, but still think back to previous sessions often. Thank you a lot!

Written by M.E. on Dec 21, 2020 after counseling with Cecile for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

This is my second review. I've been seeing Cecile for over a year now and I am so grateful to her for all the help and support she has given to me.

Written by R.U. on Dec 07, 2020 after counseling with Cecile for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Cecile is the best! She is patient and kind and she is also extremely intuitive so you don't have to feel afraid that you need to defend how you feel or "prove yourself." I think this is especially important for people who have been used to repressing their emotions and pretending they don't exist. It is very easy to open up to her about anything and she is able to give you advice that is simple and clarifying.

Cecile has been of great help in all the areas that I've needed help with. She was patient, attentive and followed up frequently to make sure I feel good about our progress. She offers guidance and a different perspective on various challenges I face and has encouraged me to cultivate healthier tools to tackle my anxieties.

Written by A.H. on May 22, 2020 after counseling with Cecile for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, intimacy-related issues, sleeping disorders, self esteem, career difficulties, and adhd

I have never felt better after talking with anyone before in my life. Cecile is simply incredible. She's thoughtful and caring enough to where it feels like she's a friend, but she also maintains the professionalism of objectivity which I was in desperate need for. She listens, and that is not a small feat. She's not afraid to say something that I need to hear even if it was painful at the time, and that is where I appreciate her objectivity. I don't need a pat on the back, I need help, and Cecile provided me with more help than I could ask for. If you ever have the opportunity to work with her, I have great hopes for your mental health!
