If both parties are committed to the relationship then I can help you find the courage to rekindle the relationship, find happiness or make a life change. Take charge of your life & happiness. Let's learn some new tools.
My ideal client is one who knows they are in need of help and are eager to take an active role in their own counseling. I encourage clients to journal, in session and after the session, to make their own record of issues covered, directions that emerged from the counseling session, to journal thoughts and feelings between sessions, and to list issues and questions to address in their next session. For counseling clients, my goal is to help them effectively and efficiently to resolve the issues that brought them into counseling. For coaching clients, my goal is to assist them to achieve excellence in the area of their choosing.
I offer a comprehensive approach to help my clients cope with their stressors and then help them reach their full potential to live a better life. I am trained in rapid trauma resolution, relaxation techniques, cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy. I have experience with all age groups, medical comorbidities, PTSD, family/marriage conflicts, grief and life transitions. I deliver therapy with a compassionate, caring and spiritual approach. I am a proud member of the National Association of Christian Counselors.
As a registered nurse and mental health counselor, I have a passion for helping hurting people. I believe in the triadic healing of body mind and spirit, and enjoy working with clients who are experiencing relationship challenges, spiritual struggles and emotional pain. I hold a Christian worldview, and therefore do not believe in judging others.
Childhood comes with a variety of challenges for parents and children, but sometimes those challenges can become overwhelming and that’s where I can help. As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I provide individual and family therapy for children and adolescents dealing with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger, ADHD, peer concerns, self harm and coping with everyday life problems. I understand the importance of building a positive therapeutic relationship based on trust. I will provide you with a safe space where you will feel understood in order to help your child/family heal and become the best version of yourselves.
You want change but don't know where to start. You might be experiencing debilitating emotional, psychological, and/or physical pain. Or depression that leaves you feeling lost and alone. Maybe you have intense anxiety and fear that prevents you from connecting with those you love and that keeps you from feeling accomplished. Perhaps a slow eroding of your self-esteem has taken root and negatively impacting your abilities to see the wonder and awe in the world. If you are experiencing any of these feelings, emotions, or life challenges, please know that you are not alone. I can teach you to be your own change agent.
Thank you for considering me for your mental health needs. I have helped children/adolescents with behavioral challenges, adults with mood, work, and parenting concerns, couples/families with communication issues, and elderly clients facing grief/loss. I have provided extensive assessment/consultation services to Florida's juvenile justice and child welfare systems, as well as academic testing for school-age children. One current area of interest is electronic overuse among children/adults. I understand the challenges facing youth raised in the digital age, and the work, family, and extracurricular demands on a parent's time.
I am experienced with versatile populations and therapeutic concerns. My therapy techniques with children include a mix of cognitive-behavioral therapy, the developmental approach, creative and play-based interventions, and integrating sensory interventions into daily life in order to cope with the social-emotional effects of grief, trauma, and neurodevelopmental disorders. I am also passionate about working with adults healing from psychological trauma and loss. Building a client-focused therapeutic alliance and providing a safe environment centered on empathic support and compassion is paramount to how I connect with clients.
Are you haunted by your past? Concerned about the close relationships in your life that don't seem to be working? Confused about why you can't seem to let go of self defeating behaviors when you have so much success in some areas of your life? I look forward to working with you to find solutions through using innovative techniques such as EMDR to help you tap into your own inner resources
A happy life is your birthright. Together in a respectful and collaborative relationship we can determine what prevents you from the experience of life you want and were intended to have. I keep up to date with the latest research in psychotherapy and brain neurology and substance abuse, depression, anxiety, unstable personal or work relationships. I am trained in EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) which is the only non-medicinal therapy in effectively treating trauma and post traumatic stress disorder.
