Experienced and compassionate behavioral health and wellness therapist driven by an authentic desire to guide and support anyone facing challenging individual and or life difficulties. I am licensed in Florida, Wyoming, and Virginia with 24 years of providing supportive therapeutic mental health, addiction, crisis management, and wellness services for adults, couples, adolescents, children, families, aging adults, and veterans. I also provide Resiliency coaching and mentoring to individuals, managers and executives. Resilience has been identified as the most important core element of goal achievement and overall success. I will specially tailor our interactions, dialog, and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs and goals. It takes great courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I am committed to promoting enhanced mental health and well-being through client-centered and ethically supportive therapeutic practices.
My clinical approach is always client-centered with a focus on blending client concerns, circumstances, and personal goals with specific treatment and rehabilitative best practices strategies to ensure an effective treatment plan that is unique and individualized to you as the client. I work with clients from a perspective that emphasizes their personal strengths, goals, and resources to create the positive change they are seeking. This therapeutic approach is referred to as Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) which is a strength-based approach based on problem-solving and solution-building regarding the current reason(s) the client is seeking therapeutic services.
If you have any questions or concerns before our first session, please don't hesitate to reach out via the BetterHelp platform.
I look forward to our sessions and the positive changes we can work toward together!
