About Me

"Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything." - George Bernard Shaw. Often times, we find ourselves stuck and are unsure how or what to do to move forward. My goal is to assist individuals in this process so the fullest potential is reached allowing you to live your best life.

I provide tailored therapeutic interventions to adults and families who are struggling with trauma, substance abuse, behavioral issues, and/or mental health issues. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I utilize cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, solution-focused approach as well as motivational interviewing to foster a client-centered environment to produce sustainable change.

I have nearly two decades of experience in the field of mental health, case management, and crisis services. I am dedicated to assisting individuals as they gain the skills and support necessary to make the changes that allow them to make forward progress and achieve their life goals.

Frederica has been great at helping me get comfortable with therapy and being open with her in order to help her understand me and the best methods to help me along my journey

So far I am very happy with my therapy. It's different for me as I am accustomed to going to a therapist and being able to just sit and vent. Frederica is trying a new approach with me that I was unsure of, but am gaining help from.

I've had 3 Betterhelp counselors prior to Frederica, I'm so glad I found her! She listens and really understands, she had been able to meet me right where I am and deliver what I need most in that state.

So far Frederica has helped me unburden a lot of what’s been weighing on my for the last year. From a personal perspective- I still have a way to go but I’m looking forward to the journey.

Frederica is awesome! She fosters a safe and judgment-free zone! I think joining Better Help and receiving counseling from Frederica is one of my best decisions of 2020!

It feels like Frederica is very in tune with what I'm thinking and feeling and she's great at cracking jokes at all the right moments to break the tension. I have been with her for two sessions, and she's already provided so many different tools for me to use. My sessions with her have been absolutely worth it.

Frederica is "real" and the type of therapist you want...one that really wants to help. I highly recommend her!!
