Hello! First of all I would like to commend you on taking a positive step towards improving your mental health. Whether you are new or returning to counseling, this is probably the hardest step. I know it is difficult to reach out and ask for help, so I will try to make it as easy as possible.
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida with over 12 years of experience. I’ve worked with different populations in my career to include veterans, order adults, young adults and teens, men, women and members of the LGBTQ+ community. No matter your background, I'd like to reassure you that I offer a safe, affirming, non-judgmental space where you will be heard.
Over the years I've worked with clients facing a number of different challenges to include anxiety, depression, history of trauma, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, substance-abuse, relationship issues, stress, overwhelm and burnout to name a few. In therapy, I use best practices (listed in clinical approaches below) which have been proved to be the most effective in managing mental health symptoms.
I look forward to getting to know you and working with you.

Tina is extremely kind and caring. She listens to my concerns and never judges me about anything. She also has really good insight on things and what strategies might work best for me.

I have never made as much progress with my mental health journey as I have now that I have Tina as a therapist. She is kind, respectful, well educated, and makes me feel comfortable and valued as a person. The list of positive traits this woman possesses is endless. I’m confident that anyone else will have the same experience if they give her the chance!

Tina's expertise in the human mind gives me confidence in the sessions, no matter what we talk about. She really knows her stuff, she's kind and sweet, she'll understand my needs and wants and will work with me to target them. A wonderful person overall, and a good friend too!
