Many of us are not aware of how our upbringing and family dynamics are impacting our present life. We inherit more than just the physical appearance from our parents and family members. We inherit our generation's dysfunctional boundaries, poor communication skills, traumas, parenting style, and much more. We are affected not only by the way we think and respond, but by our environment and current family dynamics. Learning how to set healthy boundaries and functional communication skills can be very challenging if done without professional help. Life-stages come with its challenges but they also come with opportunity for growth.

Many of us struggle with conflicting thoughts and emotions. Facing challenging decisions, navigating intimate relationships and family, and carrying too many responsibilities can be overwhelming and often too difficult to work though alone. Unresolved issues and traumas can lead to feeling "stuck" rather than taking steps towards finding solutions and healing. Many people resort to "quick fixes" when feeling lonely, anxious, or depressed, instead of addressing the root cause of the pain and discomfort. My experiences and training allow me to help you find tools within yourself to discover new perspectives and cultivate new skills.

I have a dual license as a marriage and family therapist, am certified in addictions, have advanced clinical hypnosis training, and advanced education in eye movement desensitization and reprocessing for trauma resolution.
What makes you do things that are the exact opposite of what you want? Research reveals, in part, that your unconscious motivations conflict with your conscious intentions. Many blame themselves for making the wrong choices that are conscious but, somehow beyond their immediate control. Without your knowledge, the unconscious drives you in another direction and at your core lay the threatening force of fear that can drag you away from where you want to go. Every time you sense anxiety or fear, you apply the brakes, slow down your journey, and prevent yourself from living your fullest life. We offer psychological tools to move forward.

My approach to counseling is framed around two perspectives. The first is that each individual knows themselves best. Because of that belief I am available to help individuals achieve the change they seek based on an understanding that each person may just need some guidance to access the knowledge they already have inside of them. The second perspective involves not dwelling on the origins of problems. Knowing the roots of a problem doesn't mean that the effects of a problem suddenly disappear. I often rely on a solutions focused approach rather than a problem centric focus with helping individuals work toward change.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Sarasota psychologists specializing in anger management, couples counselling, or EMDR.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way'. A couples counselor or a family counselor may use different techniques depending on the one that works best for you. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
