People find their way to therapy for so many reasons. You or someone you love may need help navigating a particular challenge or difficult phase of life. You may be in a crisis or wanting to work on long-standing patterns that aren't working for you. I enjoy helping young people manage emotional stress, anxiety, depression, struggles with relationships and life changes. I've worked with youth in schools and have a great deal of experience helping and advising parents too. Personally, I have 4 children of my own and deeply understand the struggles of parenting.

I believe that empowerment is an essential and powerful tool in the healing process. I approach the therapist-client relationship with an open heart and mind, building upon trust, collaboration, and empathy to produce transformative outcomes. I seek to facilitate change by entering the client’s psychological world; this allows me to focus on the lived experiences of each individual and the personal meaning behind their circumstances past, present, and future to determine the most effective therapeutic interventions. My holistic approach to psychotherapy focuses on the overall relationship between mind, body & spirit!

Many of us navigate the world using the survival skills we learned in our childhood. We often grew up learning to view and interact with the world in a way that made us feel safe. Now, some of these survival styles hinder us from building deeper connections with others and ourselves. Our marriage becomes challenging, family interactions feel superficial, and we often feel the need to be vulnerable but don't out of fear of judgment. This stops us from connecting with others, establishing boundaries, and making better decisions.

It may be tough to envision serenity in life away from constant challenges that can be traumatic. However, you and your family may not feel worthy of obtaining it. Jointly it is possible to overlook the impact the challenges have naturally. Thus, increasing the potential barriers to tackle. Together you desire to know when a breakthrough arises. Even so, it appears impossible to reach that it may be difficult to find enjoyment in your life. The journey to a breakthrough will not be effortless. There will be moments of feeling uncomfortable as well as moments of feeling motivated to proceed on the path.

The goal of therapy is to uncover and understand what road is best to travel for you or with a partner. Going on the journey of therapy may get rough, but I'm here to walk alongside you when you cry, laugh, wonder, and discover YOU!

Coming into a therapeutic environment is courageous and speaks volumes of your strength and resiliency. As quoted by Abraham Maslow, “In any given moment, we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.” This is your first step into growth! Therapy is a sanctuary where you can feel safe, seen, heard, and valued. My mission is to provide a calm, empathic, and nurturing environment where you can explore your own narrative.

What type of Fort Lauderdale 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Fort Lauderdale?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
