Life is difficult. If you are here, chances are that you (or someone important to you) are facing some significant challenge(s) that are negatively impacting your life. A therapeutic relationship can be a wonderful tool to help work through a variety of life's issues! As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I have spent the last decade providing counseling for patients in inpatient psychiatric treatment, intensive outpatient treatment for drug and alcohol abuse (rehab), and private psychotherapy practice for individuals, groups, and families. I am also a professor of counseling and psychology for a private university in Florida.
Sometimes it just takes one conversation to start recognizing unhealthy patterns that are holding us back from achieving our goals. Once we get to the root causes of our discontent, we can begin the real work to create positive change. Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma, dysfunctional family patterns, marital stressors, or welcoming a new child- you are resilient and capable of creating the life you want. Contentment is possible if we are open to doing the work. Unfortunately, many of us lack the necessary support we need to be successful in this process.
ONLY VIDEO & PHONE SESSIONS PROVIDED* Do you find yourself over thinking, over-reacting, procrastinating and or second guessing yourself? Has your inner critic taken control of your thought patterns making it difficult for you live your very best life? Beginning therapy means different things to different people, but it is often an action of courage, hope, self-care, and self-determination. I will provide you with a safe, non-judgmental space to process and work through unhealed emotional wounds so that you can experience mental wellness and feelings of connectedness to yourself and with others.
Our lived experiences often shape our meaning and understanding of our world and sometimes those experinces bring us internal and relational difficulties. Clouding us from knowing our own skills and confidence to lead our most fulfilling life with a sense of empowerment and authenticity. I believe neither our circumstances or experiences define who we are and when our stories no longer match our sense of self we can feel a multitude of emotions and unsure of where to turn for support. Developing a space to feel heard, seen and supported is where others can find the strength to re-create their lives.
“It it not the water around the ship that sinks the ship, it is the water inside the ship that sinks the ship.” Using this metaphor, I effectively help my clients figure out what exactly is “sinking their ship” and provide techniques and strategies to right their ship and put it in seaworthy condition. Specifically, I help my clients manage anxiety and depression, relationship issues, alcohol abuse, lack of self-confidence and self-esteem, and life adjustments.

Many times we are our own worst critic. Did you know that we have 60,000 thoughts a day, and most of them are negative and the majority of them are the same ones we had yesterday. Let me help you silence that critic in you, and teach you how to talk more nicely to yourself. It all starts with your thoughts, and once you change those, you change your entire life. Through personal experience and education, I have learned how to journey with others as they mange this thing we call "Life". I would consider it an honor to journey with you today!
Connection is hard. It requires a level of vulnerability that opens us up to the very pain we’ve been trying to avoid. The thing about connection though, is that it is vital to every person’s emotional, sexual, and mental well-being. We can’t understand ourselves or feel close to others without it. As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Sex Therapist, I offer a safe, honest, and affirming environment where you can feel comfortable exploring whatever holds you back from connecting with yourself and others. With you in the driver's seat, I can help you move towards a more fulfilling and integrated life.
Life can change in an instant. Unexpected life events and unforeseen circumstances can shake the very foundation of our lives and shatter our illusions of control. A multitude of unanticipated events can negatively impact our lives, destroy our sense of safety, impair our mental health, and complicate our interpersonal relationships. Many times families and friends struggle to provide the support and direction we need during the turbulent seasons of life. It takes strength and courage to reach out for help but the benefits of taking that risk can lead to new insight, personal growth, and a renewed sense of purpose.
