Dr. Hodges is a Clinical Neuropsychologist who offers comprehensive assessment services to adults. Neuropsychological evaluations are helpful in determining the etiology of certain cognitive concerns.

*** ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** My ideal client is an open-minded, curious person who is collaborative, courageous and willing to work together to discover new possibilities and a new understanding of life, relationships and the Self, especially as it relates to a Higher Power.
Sometimes we realize how much of our life we spend tending to the needs of others and how little we attend to our own needs. You may have reached a point where you have little left to give and exhaustion, grief, anxiety, or depression have taken over. Maybe you even find yourself feeling detached from those closest to you. If you find yourself in this place, it's time for a change. We cannot give water from an empty well.
Clients come seeking help with feelings of depression, OCD, anxiety, or a recent loss. Others seek relief from the weight of a troubled, traumatic, or overly dramatic past. People come to heal their relationships of poor communication; addiction; infidelity; loss of love or affection; difficulty rebuilding trust, forgiving, or being forgiven. Some struggle with their partner's narcissistic behavior. Parents want help with the changes that come with a newborn, blended family or empty nest. Other parents hope for less attitude and more gratitude from their child(ren). I have made it my life's work to help in all these areas and more.
Hi! I’m Sisi Zhao, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a nationally certified rehabilitation counselor currently working out of Sarasota, Florida. My top priority is to always ensure your well-being and providing you with the necessary tools and resources to help achieve your goals. My approach to therapy is very person-centered, meaning that your needs always come first and that you are an equal partner in the planning of your care. I have experience in working with children, adolescents and adults that are struggling with anxiety, trauma, depression, chronic health issues, substance abuse and ADHD.
Parents, children, and families are currently faced with many different challenges, that are unique to their generation and our post pandemic times. Has your previously outgoing child withdrawn, grades dropped, behavior at school increase? It can be overwhelming to feel there is no light at the end of the tunnel, and no one understands. Don't struggle in silence or alone. Instead of searching for what is "wrong" with clients, I work to find the strengths and power of client to begin the healing journey. I work with children, adolescences, and adults.
As most of us know, sometimes life presents challenges. These challenges could cause one to feel overwhelmed, anxious, confused, depressed or discouraged. This is when seeking help through therapy is beneficial. Have you reached a point in life where you know something needs to change, but you are uncertain of what to change or even how? So many of us face these moments where we feel like our life compass is just spinning and we have no clear direction. It feels like you are in the midst of a storm, and missing the proper equipment. Going through life's challenges with no therapy is like standing in the rain with no umbrella.

However, you don't have to allow the negative effects of a misfortune to negatively dominate your life for no longer than it should.

Is infidelity threatening to rip apart your relationship? Are you or your partner using pornography in secret? Have you or your partner failed to get rid of unwanted sexual behaviors? Pornography use, extra-marital affairs, and sexual addictions typically trigger intimacy issues which, if untreated, lead to separation and divorce. Life may feel completely out-of-control as you or your partner struggle with the consequences of these problems. At Eagles Wings Counseling Center, I am a part of a team that specializes in working with both individuals and couples who are facing the intense feelings surrounding these betrayals.
I offer Online therapeutic services to reach all of Florida State. So I am lighting the candle while you sit back, take 3 slow breaths in and out, and say to yourself, “I am in control.” You are the only one in control of your thoughts, your behaviors, and your reactions. My goal is to work with you as you gain coping skills until you can maintain your control once again. But what if you never felt that control or felt that confidence. I focus on the ‘present’ & ‘here and now’ because this moment matters more than the past or future. This is where we can work on perspective, which changes behavior.
As a therapist, I focus on the person as a whole, to talk with you to determine how to move past some of your darkest times. Life can feel overwhelming, confusing, and as if you will never be able to look past your current situation. But, there is hope. My goal is for you to feel hope at the end of each session while we tackle the problems you are facing today, together.

The feeling of being stuck is terrible for all of us and not knowing how to get "unstuck" can make it worse. We complain about being irritable all the time, crying easily, and not knowing why we're so emotional. We can become stuck in the same unhelpful patterns that prevent us from meeting our goals and having healthy relationships. Avoidance is something we all do, especially when it comes to painful emotions, and this is what can keep us stuck. Feeling depressed or helpless? Struggling with conflicts in your life? Anxious? Feeling disconnected from yourself and others? You don't deserve to remain stuck.
One of my favorite quotes from Brene Brown is "Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen." I provide a safe and comfortable space which allows clients to work on their challenges and achieve their desired outcome. Life can be a challenge. You are not alone in wanting relief from what seems to be your biggest hurdles.
You're sick of feeling this way. You hoped it would get better with time. You kept thinking, "I can figure this out on my own." And you've tried. But nothing's worked. You're tired & not sure where to turn. You're good at keeping up appearances, but it's wearing you down... If you can relate to this, you're not alone and you're not screwed up. Your brain is working against you, but you can learn to manage your mind & handle your negative emotions without getting hijacked by them. No one gives us a user's manual for our brain, but I can help you take control of your emotional health so you can feel better, probably pretty quickly.
