I work primarily with the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual community but not exclusively.. The ideal GLB client is seeking gay affirmative clinical approaches to the therapy. Clients desire to explore what is keeping them from maximizing their potential as a person Client recognizes a need to examine oppressive societal structures that have impacted their lives and relating. The ideal client is not looking for a 'quick fix'. Client acknowledges therapy takes time for growth. Bisexual clients will be looking for support not judgement from their therapist. Heterosexual clients will want a therapist who is empathic t and is motivated to attenuate conflict in their lives.

I have worked for almost 15 years as a therapist and advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community. I am especially passionate about my extensive work with trans and gender-expansive clients and their family members. My empathic, non-judgemental style allows my clients safety in navigating coming out, transitioning and understanding themselves better through a lens of self-compassion. I am well versed in writing letters of support for trans-affirming medical care and have an established resource referral network. Let me help to guide you on the path to your authentic self.

I have drawn the conclusion that the only reasonable approach to therapy is to meet my clients where they are. Perhaps you are feeling sad-- that's where you are. Perhaps depression or anxiety have affected your daily functioning. Perhaps you are in a relationship that isn't working and you would like to mend things or try to figure out what to do next. You are experiencing family problems, sexual problems, identity problems, or career problems. I would be honored to co-partner with you to bring you to a place in life where brokenness is replaced by freedom and happiness.

Do you feel alone with your feelings? If you are struggling with daily challenges and life stressors you do not need to tackle this on your own. Sometimes taking the step to talk with someone about ourselves can be a difficult one. I believe receiving support and having a witness to your experience and feelings can help empower you to heal and to live your life the way you choose.

I offer over 28 years of clinical experience to address your emotional & physical issues with counseling and evidence based natural medicine. We have all experienced emotions that manifest in our bodies as pain. You may experience stomach pain after an argument or headache at work. You may notice you get anxiety that feels like low blood sugar signals. Emotions manifest in our bodies and our body gives us signals. I help guide people into understanding how to listen to their body while including Cognitive Behavioral therapy for attaining a stronger sense of self. Mindfulness starts when we reside in our bodies; empowerment follows!

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.

Most people seek someone on the outside looking in, someone to truly listen with no judgement. Someone that is able to hold space, while we process our darkest and our brightness; where we bare it all and come to a space, where we find solace in our core with the tools needed for our daily struggles.

What type of Bradenton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bradenton?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
