Taking that first step to seeking help takes courage, yet the benefits are endless. My goal is to help clients connect with their 'authentic self,' tap into their strengths, and create a meaningful life. As I guide clients, I honor where they are while mindfully challenging them toward change by unearthening blocks and cultivating tools to facilitate emotional growth. I work with adults who present with mood disorders, anxiety, relationship issues, eating disorders, personality disorders, substance misuse disorders, women’s issues and complex trauma. I also work with families as part of our comprehensive teen / young adult program.

Women's fertility and peripartum are unique and complex. They come with a wide range of emotions, from excitement to fear. As beautiful as the childbearing journey can be, women can also experience medical fatigue, financial strain, pressure from family and friends, and at times, struggle to feel connected to their partner. Allow me to support you through these times, and we will work together to ease the anxiety and walk through this experience feeling empowered. I also treat addiction and recovery, and individuals dealing with issues associated with blended families/co-parenting.

I believe one of the bravest things you can do is begin to understand your own story. Are you feeling stuck or lost? Maybe you are feeling like a shadow of your former self after a long-term painful relationship and are confused how you got here? Maybe you are wondering if you were in an abusive relationship at all? Are you continuously entering in relationships/friendships that don't seem to work out? Using substances or other compulsive behaviors to escape your reality? If so, you are not alone.

I am a Florida licensed school psychologist with over 10 years of hands-on experience performing diagnostic educational assessments and my goal is to help identify and understand your child’s strengths and challenges, and to help you advocate for your child. In my work, I’ve encountered so many children just like yours, who, without a deep and thorough assessment of abilities, would have floundered in their education. Because of my experience working in schools, I’ve seen in so many parents an urgency to know what is going on. While the school district will have an approach, I can help you navigate this efficiently.

From childhood into adolescence and then into adulthood, we inevitably settle with beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. At some point, however, it's possible those very same beliefs that may have caused us to thrive, may cause us to feel uncomfortable. If you find the quality of your relationships, the self or with others, has lessened in quality, there is discomfort to some degree that is causing everyday functioning to diminish, and the acknowledgement that these come with an emotional cost, there are answers. And we will find them within YOU!

My expertise is helping adults with chronic anxiety and/or depression, and/or grief feel better. My clients are adults who are competent and skilled in many ways, but not in healing their own spiraling fears and emotional pain. With investment in the therapy process, my clients learn to quiet self-criticism, and calm themselves when distressed. They feel more competent in relationship, and they navigate conflicts more skillfully. Daily life is more satisfying. They value themselves and honor what they bring to the world. They feel more hopeful about their future - even if it's not the future they once imagined for themselves.

My ideal clients are those who have faced traumatic experiences and are grappling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and PTSD, which can leave them feeling vulnerable, immobilized, and stuck. Trauma has the capacity to strip individuals of their sense of dignity and identity, often leaving them feeling empty and helpless. These clients seek the support and the desire to be acknowledged, heard, and treated with respect. My dream clients are individuals who are ready and willing to embark on a collaborative journey with me to explore and address their mental health, ultimately working together towards their well-being.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors.

Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the US, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

How much does therapy cost?

The cost of therapy depends on a number of variables, including location and the therapist’s experience and training. On average, a therapy session in the United States could cost between $100 and $200 or more. If you have insurance, the expense of mental health care is typically lower, but it varies based on your insurance plan details and whether you choose an in-network or out-of-network mental healthcare provider.

What are more affordable or low cost therapy solutions?

Many therapists offer sliding scale payments, usually on a limited number of slots, which consists in an agreement between the therapist and a client to pay a reduced rate. Therapists who provide such arrangements often consider the client's income or ability to pay, but the extent of the discount is ultimately at the therapist's discretion. Furthermore, while group therapy may have different goals and benefits compared to individual therapy, it can be a more affordable solution to address certain types of issues.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

Are therapy sessions confidential?

Confidentiality is a crucial part of the therapeutic relationship. Therapists in the United States are bound by the regulations set out by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), which aims to protect sensitive health information. With very few exceptions, a therapist will only discuss their client with others when the client has given their written permission. The instances in which a therapist would be required to disclose personal information are: if a client poses a danger to themselves or others, if the therapist suspects the abuse of a child or an elderly or otherwise dependent adult, or if they are legally forced to by court order. These exceptions to the confidentiality agreement are usually discussed with a client before their first session.
