I am passionate about helping transgender clients process and navigate the transition journey.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many of us great adjustments and transitions in our lives. Many may feel uncertainty, anxiety, or confusion. It is my goal to provide you with a safe, therapeutic space to unload and explore your needs, worries, and fears whatever they may be. The path to healing is unique for each of us. We will work collaboratively towards meeting your goals and needs, and in doing so, make your life more comfortable and satisfying. It is my hope that each person who meets with me feels accepted, as I respect each individual's culture, gender, race, religion, and sexual identity.

I work with client's diagnosed with gender dysphoria using WPATH guidelines, and have helped many clients achieve their goals of transition.
I have experience working with individuals (adults and adolescents), couples, and families. I am an EMDR Trained Therapist, specifically designed for trauma treatment! I assist clients having issues with anxiety, depression, gender dysphoria , substance abuse, anger management, relationship conflict, and grief. I understand that each client is unique and work with them to find the best way to achieve their goals, and thoroughly explore all treatment suggestions. Choosing counseling is usually a decision made after the client has explored other methods of resolving the issue; the goal is to find the best solution together as quickly as possible.

I’m committed to guiding you on your healing journey. We all face challenges in our lives, which are often opportunities for growth and change. The goal is not to be perfect by societal standards, ideally we learn to embrace and accept all the unique parts of ourselves. I believe we are all simultaneously flawed & fabulous. I don't believe in a one size fits all approach, I tailor each session to your individual needs. Our work together will leave you feeling empowered to move forward in the right direction. My varied experiences include work in college settings, hospice, oncology, geriatrics, maternal health & crisis debriefing.

I can provide you with a safe and nurturing environment to address these challenging times. If your goal is to move forward, I focus on helping and challenging people, not treating a diagnosis.

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.

Hello! I am Adrienne. I completed my Master of Science in Professional Counseling in 2018. As a therapist, longtime professional “helper” for over 15 years, and avid traveler, I have seen how we are all connected through the shared human experiences of joy, pain, gratitude, suffering, sadness, love, and hope. I also know that sometimes our journey gets hard, and our burden becomes too overwhelming to carry on our own. Our connectedness makes it possible for us to reach out for a trusted person to help us carry our burden until we are strong enough again to go on our way. That is where I come in.

My goals are your goals: To be the best version of yourself, whatever that looks like. I specialize in children, teens and women’s issues. Whether you are experiencing anxiety, depression, addiction issues, trouble adjusting or have a trauma background, I use art therapy and expressive materials to help you in session. Often my clients are bullied or excluded because they identify as LGBTQIA+, differently abled and/or neurodivergent. Traditional “talk therapy” options haven’t worked, so the client may need a different approach. My ideal client is willing to try venturing into the unknown because they live outside of the box.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Fort Myers?
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.
