I find passion working with individuals who struggle with PTSD/trauma, mental health, self-harming behaviors/ suicidal ideations, relationships, and grief. I have completed intensive training in Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) & EMDR, along with suicide & crisis intervention trainings, and many more. I most commonly use Cognitive Behavioral approaches along with DBT skills and Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance Therapy, and Solution-Based therapy. I like to highlight the importance of building one’s insight and knowledge, sense of self-worth, and healthy coping throughout one's healing journey.

Do you sometimes become frustrated and angry because your feelings are constantly not being validated? You have attempted to address the issue but with very little success. When our feelings are constantly ignored, resentment sets in which eventually progresses to emotional issues including early signs of depression and/or anxiety. Throughout my years in practice I have helped many individuals successfully get the acknowledgement and acceptance from others, simply by recognizing and assessing their own emotional reactions.

After “curing” most of Washington DC except Congress, I moved to Fort Myers, Florida. With 24 years of private practice experience I still love this work. I’m an author and provide tv interviews upon request. Humor is an essential part of my life and my practice. Humor is an integral part of grieving, healing, recovery and problem-solving. I, therefore incorporate it into my treatment. There are a myriad of issues for which you may be seeking help. Frequently they involve problematic relationships, or relationships with ourselves. To self most of us are unforgiving and punishing. This is common and treatable.

I became a social worker for two reasons; I have a natural propensity to talk with people therapeutically and I enjoy helping people. Traditionally, social workers help people to get where they want to go in their lives and assist them in becoming more resourceful in dealing with stresses in their life. I provide supportive counseling, which assists in the process of clients leaning how to support themselves and offer them the tools they need to become more proficient at navigating the environment we live in.

What type of Fort Myers 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 Myers?
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.
