Florida is quite the state to talk about. It’s a beautiful state where the sun always shines and there is an adventure around every corner. It’s home to some vast beaches and Disney World, the happiest place on earth. 

However, sometimes you aren’t the happiest person on earth, and no amount of fun seems to change that. That’s when your counselor comes in. A counselor can make your mental health shine like the sun again, and you’ll be as happy as Mickey Mouse waving at the guests at Disney World.

As far as the world knows, you're okay. You have tried to "get over it," to "just feel better," and to "move on" but nothing seems to work. You are not exactly sure how you got to this point or how to get out. Everyday you say that it will be different only to watch the hours go by and to end up feeling a bit worse than the day before. You want to take steps towards helping yourself but you feel stuck. You want to feel happy, to breathe without the weight on your chest and to accomplish the goals you have set out for yourself. Imagine feeling connected to yours...

I am a licensed clinical psychologist and a clinical health psychologist by training. My expertise is in the connection between the mind and body, and I practice with an appreciation that while emotional experiences like depression or anxiety can feel "all in your head," they also interplay with your body- contributing to symptoms like pain, fatigue, a sense of "fogginess," and even weakening your body's ability to fight illness. Many of my patients are people who have lived with chronic illnesses, or have tricky habits they'd like to change like smoking, over...

You can always find an excuse to not help yourself. Whether it be losing ...
