OPENINGS NOW IN OFFICE and Remotely. Overwhelmed? Anxious? Panic? Sad? Stressed? Worried? Painful Marriage? Chronic Illness or Pain? I use a comprehensive approach to balance mind and body, encompassing holistic & traditional therapies. I have 30 years of experience. In 1993 I began studying the mind-body connection while working with cancer patients. My work in this area took on greater importance after I suddenly became ill & went into cardiac arrest. Doctors at a prestigious university hospital were baffled. Married with two children, working & having just finished graduate school, unaware how stressed I was, my body showed me.

Maybe you've been recently diagnosed with a long term illness or you've had symptoms for years and you don’t recognize yourself anymore. You know these health struggles are somehow behind your depressed and anxious feelings, and you feel alone…like no one understands. Right now, you may have more questions than answers, but one thing you know for sure is that you’d do anything to get your life back. You grieve for the person you used to be and find it hard to imagine yourself living a worthwhile life with this illness trying to drag you down every chance it gets. (Due to demand, I ONLY accept clients with chronic illness concerns)

I provide counseling sessions for tweens, teens, young adults, and those of all ages suffering from cancer or chronic illness who live in the state of Florida.
You may be experiencing a variety of mental health concerns right now but I am not going to pretend like I know exactly how you are feeling in this season of your life. You are the expert of your experience and this season does not define you. I am passionate about helping you discover and create the most authentic version of yourself. Everyone’s experience is unique, and it is my goal to provide a safe space where my clients can comfortably receive the empathy and support that they need to work through their challenges, even when it feels like no one else understands what they are going through.

I connect best with adults who are looking to work through life transitions, past traumas (ACOAs), existential crises, spiritual concerns, emotional effects of chronic illness , grief and loss, immigration/acculturation, gender and sexual identity, and general relationship and familial challenges.
At some point in our lives, we arrive at a crossroads where we realize that the ways in which we have been engaging in life are no longer working for us. Our behaviors, values, and ways of thinking are so familiar and comfortable to us yet are simultaneously causing us grief and pain. We feel blocked from finding inner peace and reaching our full potential. The purpose of therapy is to help us recognize and work through these antiquated patterns so that we can start engaging with ourselves and the world around us in a fresh, new way that results in a healthier, happier, and more authentic life.

What type of Saint Petersburg 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 Saint Petersburg?
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.
