About me

Hi! My name is Tammy. I am a licensed mental health therapist in Florida (US) with a positive and hopeful outlook! I have over 20 years of counseling experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, family conflicts, coping with grief and loss, parenting issues, social behavior, and crisis counseling. As well as trauma related issues, sexuality and work related concerns.

I have a sense of humor and maintain a hope for the future. It is an honor to work with another person, to gain their trust and help them figure out what's going well, what is causing concern or distress, and to help them find small steps toward a resolution and personal growth.
The first few sessions start out with a person-centered therapy approach. However, the information collected in the first few sessions may lead to a better suited theory. I feel that issues like depression or anxiety can be helped with cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT has also been great when working with adolescents who struggle with aggression and conduct disorders. I find dialectical behavior therapy techniques to be useful in a counseling setting as well. My counseling style and approach really depends on the client and what best fits the situation. Person-centered therapy, CBT, and DBT have been my main approach and style.
My clients typically meet with me once weekly for 45 minutes. We begin by building rapport and learning about the issues that brought them to seek counseling. It is important to establish a trusting, ethical, therapeutic relationship by form of congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathy in the beginning. Sometimes a person-centered approach leads the client to discover the answers for themselves. My counseling style is primarily Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Brief Solution Focused Therapy so we can develop a plan to help you feel better as soon as possible. Most of the time you will have "homework", which will allow you to identify core beliefs and change the way you feel. We can do short extra sessions during the week, especially during your first month or two, to be sure you have a good foundation for getting your goals met.

Whether you are seeking change for a healthier happier life, or just need a non judgmental ear to listen, I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you! Getting to know yourself, take good care of yourself and live well day to day creates more of an ease in life, and affords you time and a place to resolve deeper issues or past trauma.

I first stepped into a therapist’s office at 5 years old and have continued my therapy journey into adulthood. Tammy is one of the few therapists I’ve met on that journey that excels at helping me understand the root causes of my struggles. She is experienced, funny, wise, and most importantly relatable. Allowing me to move through difficult emotions and situations with a better understanding and tools. I am grateful to the therapy gods for I’ve got linked up with a true gem!
