Are you struggling with anxiety, depression or replaying problems from the past? Therapy can be an excellent way of working through and moving on from the difficulties of life.

Are you questioning what is going on with you or your child’s learning, behavior, mood, and/or social-emotional needs? Sometimes understanding what is going on and how to help can be a challenge. In order to best help, a comprehensive psychological evaluation may be beneficial. Psychological testing is a comprehensive process to see what issues are affecting you or your child and design a plan of action to address the concerns. Early identification can reduce and prevent long-term negative outcomes.
I offer Online therapeutic services to reach all of Florida State. So I am lighting the candle while you sit back, take 3 slow breaths in and out, and say to yourself, “I am in control.” You are the only one in control of your thoughts, your behaviors, and your reactions. My goal is to work with you as you gain coping skills until you can maintain your control once again. But what if you never felt that control or felt that confidence. I focus on the ‘present’ & ‘here and now’ because this moment matters more than the past or future. This is where we can work on perspective, which changes behavior.
As most of us know, sometimes life presents challenges. These challenges could cause one to feel overwhelmed, anxious, confused, depressed or discouraged. This is when seeking help through therapy is beneficial. Have you reached a point in life where you know something needs to change, but you are uncertain of what to change or even how? So many of us face these moments where we feel like our life compass is just spinning and we have no clear direction. It feels like you are in the midst of a storm, and missing the proper equipment. Going through life's challenges with no therapy is like standing in the rain with no umbrella.
On the path of life, we encounter unexpected twists, bumps, and turns, and sometimes, we need a safe place to process all of these events and the emotions and thoughts they evoke. I believe we all need a safe healing environment at different points in our lives, and I can be that for you. I believe all people truly have the answers within themselves, but sometimes, we just need a little space to be able to find those answers.
In life, we all go through difficult moments where we need to reinvent ourselves. Life’s circumstances often force us to question our self-esteem, confidence, and what we think of ourselves. Understanding how we feel is not an easy task, sometimes we get confused, and we may know something needs to change but don’t know how to do it. However, everything is easier when we seek professional help that can do what the people around us cannot, which is: listen non-judgmentally, understand our issues, challenge with respect, and guide us in dealing with our problems easier.
