In over 20 years of work with individuals and couples, and as a supervisor of other therapists, I have gained experience in working with problems including motivation and attention issues, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, procrastination, addictions and relationship problems.

Together we will gain an understanding of the emotional, mental and behavioral habits which are getting in the way of you realizing your potential and preventing you from meeting your needs. " Do the work, see the progress"

**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Having the willingness to bring yourself into the counseling room and sharing your deepest hurts with a stranger can be extremely difficult. Coming in with the openness and desire to get better without knowing how it is all going to work takes a lot of courage. A desire to get better is where it starts, the next step is showing up and allowing yourself to be vulnerable. I know it's scary, but you won't be walking this road alone. My job is to stand alongside you and help guide the steps to healing.

There’s an old picture hanging in my office of a woman dressed in a white and blue cover up sitting with her legs crossed. She’s wearing an expression I’ve seen many times before. If she could talk she would say, “I don’t want to be here talking to you. You don’t know me and I don’t know you. I know what you do, you get me to talk, you have a plan for me but I have a better plan for you. I won’t tell you anything of note, and soon you’ll tire of me and I’ll be in the same boat.” During my many years in shelters and private practice I’ve worked with hundreds of these cases with much success. (The First Two Sessions Are Free.)

Tina works with PTSD, anxiety disorders, depression, adjustment issues, oppositional defiant disorder, self-harming behaviors, and attention issues. Tina focuses on creating a judgment-free environment to foster growth and healing for all her clients. Tina follows the theory behind Brainspotting that the brain stores trauma in the subcortical of the brain, and the trauma often triggers the fight or flight response. Often, individuals become stuck in a state of fight or flight after experiencing trauma. The therapist can access the trauma through eye movement and allow the brain to reprocess the traumatic experience.

Contrary to popular belief, therapy isn’t just for those in trouble. It can actually be a “think tank” utilized by wholesome individuals to jumpstart their next massive maneuver. Having someone bound by confidentiality to help you process life, it's stressors, or barriers is invaluable.

I take a non-judgemental and collaborative approach to mental health. Therapy should be accessible and comfortable for everyone, and as such, I promote LGBTQ + equality, support all expressions of gender identity, and believe in body positivity and Health At Every Size (HAES). I believe that each person is the expert of their own life- and it’s a privilege to be a part of your journey and recovery. Therapy is right for anyone who is interested in getting more out of life by taking responsibility, enhancing self-awareness, and working toward change.

What type of Lakeland 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 Lakeland?
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.
