Have you tried talk therapy before? It helped you gain some insight, but you still did not get the relief that you wanted. You connected all the dots, but you don't know what to do next? Now that you see the bigger picture, you need more tools. You probably have been learning mediation, yoga, repairing your nervous system, but those things in your rear-view mirror are still holding you back. You know where you want to be and who you truly are. But you feel like there is some invisible barrier or force pulling you to stay where you are at. You are tired of feeling stuck.
Hi there! I am excited to connect with you here and to potentially join your on your healing journey. I help empaths, highly sensitives (HSP's), healers and wellness professionals let go of the overwhelm, perfectionism and burnout so they can get back to loving with their work and live their best lives. I draw from a variety of holistic, mind-body-spirit approaches to help you reduce anxiety and stress, overcome trauma, set better boundaries, improve your relationships, and learn how to develop positive attitudes towards life’s most complex and challenging circumstances.
As a licensed mental health therapist practicing in the Tampa Bay area for more than twenty years, I am extending my practice to the transgender community to direct my life into a profession where I can continue to reach out and work towards social justice and help people move towards their goals and a new future. This year I was honored to be a part of the inaugural class towards Board Certification in Gender Therapy from the International Transgender Counseling Association. This intensive training's mission is to offer the education and support necessary for professional, ethical, and knowledgeable care.
I believe that personal growth is something that occurs when a person is open to thinking or trying things differently. Since taking steps towards change can be difficult, I feel that a certain level of support and encouragement are an important part of this process. I would like to offer my assistance in helping you reach your goals!
I specialize in helping healthy, productive people continue to evolve and thrive. Many of us have nagging, underlying concerns that, if addressed, would help us reach our ultimate mental, physical, emotional, or professional goals. Is a fear of public speaking holding you back from job opportunities or a promotion? Do you feel like you have it all, except luck finding someone to share it with? Are you struggling with your career choice and have doubts about what to do instead? Do you lack confidence but can't understand why? Whatever the concern, we will work together to shake it once and for all.
Everyone deserves to feel good about themselves, and everyone can. Psychotherapy helps you develop the insight, skills and courage to create more joy, harmony, power, and success in your life. These positive changes may manifest as an improved sense of well-being, better stress management, reduction of painful/unwanted symptoms, improved relationships, enhanced sense of self, career success, etc. It is an honor to use my expertise, skills and experience to assist you with your commitment to personal growth and maximizing your potential. Call now for your free consultation! Thank you for choosing the Laird Khepera Institute to facilitate your journey to well-being!
Overwhelmed? At a loss? Just need an ear? I'm Aaron, a Marriage and Family Therapist here in the Sunshine State who is open, inclusive, and supportive of all. I am trained in highly diverse relationships and life styles. As such, I firmly believe that all people are people, all love is love, and should be supported with the same gusto. While I have a wide range of experience working with various ages and diagnoses, I currently specialize in relational counseling (couples, pods, open, monogamous, etc.), LGBTQIA+ individuals, and adoptive families. My goal is to help all people grow personally and relationally to live a thriving life.
If you're reading this, you know you're ready for change. I work with people who are tired of repeating maladaptive behavioral and thought patterns who have finally decided to end their suffering by putting themselves first. We'll dive deep into all aspects of your life - family, social, work, romantic, health, sleep, relationship with self, and spirituality (if applicable). We'll uncover any deficits in these areas and gain insight into the triggers causing the distress so we can get you the relief you deserve. When working with me, my goal is not to get you dependent on me but to make you the expert in your thoughts and behaviors.
If you're stressed, burned out, & overwhelmed, it's not your fault. Know that you don't have to suck it up & deal or settle for less than you deserve just because society rewards overworking & putting yourself last (F**k that)! A more peaceful & pleasurable life is possible for you. As a busy, successful adult, you know how to get things accomplished, but it may feel impossible to slow down & enjoy your success without everything falling apart. I can help you step away from the hustle & grind status quo & into work-life balance. I'm honored to be your supportive guide while you go from surviving to thriving!
With over 20 years combined experience as a mental health provider and first responder, I have an exceptional understanding of the way traumatic events shape our minds and bodies. This includes how we perceive every facet of our lives, from work, relationships, and absolutely who we see in the mirror. My clinical experience includes work in the nonprofit and private sector with individuals, and groups, helping people heal from abuse, stress, anxiety, addictions, and trauma. Additionally, I have spent over 15 years working in the criminal justice system, as a law enforcement officer and first responder training coordinator.
Life stressors and difficult experiences can make us feel unsteady. I enjoy helping people find their balance and grounding. My passion is combining my knowledge of Eastern and Western healing modalities to create a unique therapeutic experience. My focus is to create a safe space for healing to occur. If you are seeking therapy to assist you with everyday life stressors or there is something deeper to process, I can hold space for you.
Do you find yourself getting in your own way from living the best life that you can? Would you like to learn to develop and implement the tools that you need to get past the fears, insecurities and anxieties that are getting in your way? Do you find yourself second guessing every action, every decision you make? Would you like to learn to understand yourself better?
Hey! I’m Genevieve. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Florida and Colorado. I graduated from FSU and I specialize in treating trauma/PTSD, anxiety, working with the LGBTQIA+ community and coping with grief & loss. In addition to talk therapy, I offer Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). Through the use of skilled eye movements, I am able to treat clients struggling with acute or chronic PTSD and trauma symptoms such as nightmares, flashbacks, memory lapses, numbness, hypervigilance, irritability, and self-destructive behaviors. This special therapy aids clients in reducing trauma within 1-5 sessions on average.
Sometimes, difficult things happen in life, leaving you feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or even isolated. You might try to cope with these situations by using strategies you used before, only to realize they don't work as well anymore. As a result, you may find your distress has started to affect other areas of your life (school, work, relationships, etc.) As a Clinical Psychologist, I have a lot of experience in providing evidence-based care to individuals, couples, and families who have found themselves in such situations. I also specialize in providing services to military/veteran populations and juvenile offenders.
I hope to work alongside you in this next step of your mental health journey to make it feel rewarding, worthwhile, and effective. My personal approach to counseling is simple- I say that it’s like a bandaid on a cut. I am not there to “fix” you, I am there to provide a safe, healthy, protected, and nurturing environment for you to heal on your own. I will be there every step of the way with a tailored treatment plan to your specific needs. I have had the privilege of working with all kinds of lovely humans, so please know that all races, cultures, religions, genders, sexualities, etc. are welcome in my office! This is a safe space.
Are you stressed, feel disconnected from your partner and children, unhappy with your choices, and struggling with depression?

You haven’t been able to figure out how to get rid of your past traumatic experiences and now life seems to be adding new problems to the old ones. Let’s work together to build a brain-healthy lifestyle. I can support you on your journey of lasting behavioral changes.
