I have spent the majority of my professional career in a military environment and consider it an honor to have helped individuals with significant trauma, depression, anxiety, and overall life stress. The integration of physical and behavioral health is the epitome of why I entered the mental health field. My mission and approach helps bridge a gap that isn't often addressed in healing. My mission as a therapist is to help people heal themselves. Using holistic techniques, we address concerns comprehensively, leading to deeper healing and long-lasting balance.

Some days (and even weeks!) can be so much harder than others, which may have you feeling stuck in life. This causes you worry and sadness, and these emotions may be leading you to make poor decisions. When stressors combine, this can have a negative impact on our self-esteem, relationships, and school/work. To have a more positive and happy life, things need to change, and this can feel overwhelming without support. I can help with a wide variety of issues that can result in a happier life, not only for you, but also for your loved ones.

Life is hard enough all on its own. It's even harder when you're using all your energy to fight off things like anxiety or depression. The space it takes up in your head is unreal. You do a good job of appearing to have it together but inside your head it's LOUD. Whether the problem is excessive worry, or doubt, it's always there, lurking, waiting to sabotage a decent day. It makes you snap at people and you don't even know why. Maybe it shows up as anger, irritability, social isolation- however it happens it's not doing anything good for you. It interferes with life overall. Living like this is exhausting and unnecessary.

Counselor, MA, LMHC, NCC, CGP
Verified
I am experienced in treating a myriad of issues, including anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma-related disorders. I work with individuals ages 11 and up, and provide a focus on helping people survive and thrive in the systems they live in, with particular focus on the ever present role that unresolved grief plays in many of our situations in which we feel “stuck”- unable to move forward with life. My clients benefit from learning what it is that is causing them to feel stuck, and then becoming empowered to take effective action in their own lives toward getting “un-stuck”. My typical client is simply ready to make real change.

If you are researching therapists, you have already started your journey to wellness, and I applaud you. It’s a big step. It takes courage. So many people focus only on their physical health. This is certainly important and may help you live longer, but neglecting your mental health will diminish the quality of those long lives. Let me help you add quality to your life. Everyone deserves that. Let me help you find your peace and strength. We are more resilient than we realize.

I work with individuals, couples and families helping them deal effectively with problems that arise through the course of their individual and family life cycle. These may include relationship problems, conflict among family members, challenges raising children, difficulties adjusting to different life stresses, anxiety and depression. I view psychotherapy as a process of exploration that leads to further understanding of oneself and others. Crises and life challenges offer opportunities for personal and relationship growth, as well as opportunities for making choices that lead to the improvement of the overall quality of our lives.

I have practiced in Fort Lauderdale since 1999. My background also includes many years as a trial lawyer and a master's level social worker in New England. Over the years I have worked with a diverse group of people ranging in age from 6 to 92! While my initial training focused on working with children and families, especially in divorce-related issues, since moving to Florida, my practice took a dramatic turn towards working with obesity and bariatric surgery patients. As this field developed, it required me to expand my focus to include addictions, trauma, depression, anxiety and relationships issues.

I work with people who are seeking support and understanding, while overcoming the bumps in the road that we often encounter in life. Whether they are speed bumps, potholes, or full-blown roadblocks, I believe it is important to remember that no matter how big the bump may be, there is always a way to grow through the messy things we go through. I have provided individual, family, and group counseling to children, teens and adults who have sought help for complex trauma, codependency, relationship issues, depression, anxiety, anger management, thought disorders, mood disorders and substance abuse.

Many times life can be so overwhelming that breathing seems to become a challenge and feeling your heart will burst the new norm. Other times, your thoughts and feelings become so unbearably heavy and painful, completing daily mundane tasks become monumental challenges. Then the feelings of guilt and hopelessness invade you accompanied with their friends, Negative Thoughts. They become intrusive, setting up camp in your mind, and drowning you with sadness, anger, frustration, dread, helplessness, worry or any combination of these. These thoughts and feelings are real and sometimes even visceral, yet they don't have to paralyze you.

Making the decision to start therapy is not always an easy one to make. For many, this decision is often complicated by personal expectations and self-judgement regarding what they “could” have done differently in the past, or what they “should” be able to change (on their own). So, if you’re finding yourself struggling to make a similar decision, you’re not alone! If you don't think you are ready for therapy, don't rush into it!

Peace. Happiness. Love. Success. We seek them. We want them. As we see them within reach, we are knocked down by the challenges and difficulties of life. We find, instead, lives that are filled with anxiety, sadness, grief, trauma, loss and failure. I know this too well. I have experienced this in my own life and in the life of my clients. It does not matter where you are in your life. I have worked with clients from diverse backgrounds to help them navigate the troubled waters of life.

Life has become more and more complex as the world continues to evolve. Technology has impacted our lives making it harder to interact with other human beings in a fulfilling way, causing anxieties, fears, and several other problems for all. People have been experiencing sadness, isolation, and painful mental health issues as a result of external and internal conflicts, doubts, and feelings of inadequacy to live a meaningful life. We seem to live in a time when human suffering and emotional and psychological pain have increased significantly. Therapy transforms lives by helping you uncover obstacles for a much better way of living.
