I hold a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I have had the opportunity to work with individuals ranging in all ages and from different walks of life. As a therapist, I value the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship, which allows clients to build trust and become comfortable with the therapeutic process. I am dedicated to helping others by working together with individuals to help them achieve a more fulfilling life. I continue to enhance my knowledge through training and experience, in order to apply effective therapeutic interventions and provide the best possible outcome for each individual. In order to have a successful therapeutic experience, I will do my best in collaborating to form a trusting working relationship. I feel comfortable working with those individuals who are living different lifestyles and come from different cultures and backgrounds.
My approach towards counseling varies with the individual. I believe that every individual is a unique and complex being, therefore, the approach I take with you will be based on the information and problem(s) brought to the sessions. I meet the client where they are and go from there. You are in control. I will utilize different methods in therapy, however most sessions will focus on self-awareness, choices, problem solving, and setting goals for the present as well as the future. Other areas that may be of focus during the sessions may include meaning of life, your strengths and weaknesses or limitations, how you view yourself, and change. Some of the theoretical approaches I will put into use include person-centered, behavioral, and cognitive behavior theories such as Rational Emotive Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and Reality Therapy. I may ask you to complete assignments outside of sessions such as writing in a journal or reading specific material. The purpose of these assignments will be to help with self-awareness and healing, and will be discussed in follow-up sessions.
