Diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 12, I understand that living with and managing a chronic illness like diabetes can be both emotionally and physically taxing.
Feeling alone in your grief, stress, or sadness is an overwhelming place to be. For many of us, facing a major loss or life transition without support can lead to feeling stuck or even hopeless. These emotions are normal if you live with a chronic illness or are the caregiver for someone with a chronic illness . It is natural to desire balance and moments of relief in your daily life, but you may find those difficult to create given the relentless task of managing the chronic medical condition.

I have worked in the medical profession for over 40 years and have a great deal of experience with chronic illness and medical issues.

I work with clients to become more self-aware, improve communication skills, and have an overall sense of increased well-being. I specialize in couples and adult counseling.

Life often feels like a series of problems. Sometimes, the sense that we are constrained and consumed by difficulties like depression, anxiety, interpersonal conflict, chronic illness , life transitions, work stress, and confusion about our life's purpose can leave us feeling depleted, dis-empowered, stuck, and unfulfilled. My role as a therapist is to help clients face difficulties in skillful, creative, and meaningful ways that leave them feeling equal to the circumstances of their lives. My approach is compassionate, collaborative, and grounded in the principles of mindfulness-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

I also have experience working with eating disorders and clients and families dealing with chronic illness .
I believe that my clients have everything they need to achieve the life they want. Sometimes they just need a little light to shine in the darker places. I enjoy working with clients who are struggling with transition. Many of my clients have adopted life patterns that no longer suit them. I am inspired by the work I have seen my clients do. Supporting them to shift out of old stories that no longer suit them and move into a new narrative for their life that gets them to a place of joy is the best part of my work.

My ideal client is an individual seeking freedom from emotional and psychological pain. My clients see me in order to gain independence from the pain of trauma, chronic illness , addiction, and existential crisis. My client's learn new ways of thinking about the world and their place in it. They learn to live as "a part of" and not "apart from". Their relationships are enhanced, their quality of life improves, and they begin to experience life more broadly and richly. My ideal client desires change and is willing to work to achieve it.

What type of Orlando 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 Orlando?
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.
