I have experience both as primarily a child and adolescent therapist as well as an adult therapist.
I enjoy working with adults, children and adolescents. I believe that the central healing factor of effective therapy is a strong therapeutic connection or relationship between the client and the therapist. My goal in therapy is to offer a safe, warm haven to the client where they feel accepted and free to express the issues that brought them to therapy. I use an eclectic approach to therapy using a variety of theories and methods to approach the needs of the individual client.

I love working with the teen population as well.
It can take a tremendous amount of courage to start therapy. It is my job to provide a safe, compassionate and non-judgmental place for you to do that. Each individual and situation is unique, and being able to meet the individual where they are at is very important. Just being able to share in a safe space, and/or gain another perspective can have a tremendous impact. I look forward to meeting you!

We are wired to connect with one another. And the nature of pain is that it can cause us to withdraw from those around us, including from ourselves. This is where I try to help; I take the art of listening seriously and recognize that being heard is a part of the therapy process. Experiences with depression, anxiety, relationships, substances and much more all impact & interfere with our ability to connect with others and with being comfortable with ourselves. If this is where you are, please contact me to see if I would be a good fit for you.

Life can be so tough. Even when we want to live our best lives and thrive, sometimes it can just feel impossible to see the way to get there. When we've done the best we can and things still aren't working the way we want them to, that's when it's time to reach out and get help. As a therapist, it's my job to come along beside you, work with you to get really clear about all aspects of what is going on in the here and now, help you figure out where it is you would like to be instead, and walk with you from point A to point B.

Are your emotions or relationships feeling out of control? Are you tired of not knowing how to improve your stress, anxiety, depression, and difficult relationships? Is your past hanging up your present life? I will help you move from stressful worrying to feeling a sense of control over your thoughts, from depressed isolation to recovering a sense of purpose in life activities and relationships, from negative past messages in your head to a healthy view of yourself, from poor boundaries to saying no without guilt, from arguing and fighting to reconnected closeness, from chaotic overwhelm to a specific plan for peace.

Are you and your family members constantly in conflict? Do you feel at war with members of your own family? If your child's behavior is causing you stress, I can help. If you and your partner are stuck in a negative communication cycle, I can help. Sometimes families do not know what to do with big emotions, whether anger, sadness or even happiness. Learning to deal with those big feelings is a direct benefit of therapy. Therapy will provide the tools in your toolbox to create a harmonious, peaceful home with your family.

Leo Tolstoy wrote, "A successful marriage is not the result of how compatable a couple is, but how successfully they manage their incompatiblity." When people are affected by impressions from painful events, many aspects of their lives are affected, even if events are not consciously remembered. The gentle method of Rapid Resolution Therapy and brain based clinical hypnosis, is effective removing conflicts that have been blocking desired change. This method has been successful in overcoming resentment, anger, guilt, anxiety, panic attacks, nightmares, and much more, thus increasing the possibility of compatability and satisfying relationships.

I have a unique perspective in that I have experience in other areas prior to psychology. I work on problem solving techniques often as quick as the first session, when applicable, because you come here for help. As a therapist, I am here to guide you in the direction you determine. I am not here to "tell you what to do", but rather help you focus on your issues, form goals, and attain those goals. Often I will used testing and other techniques to help identify problem areas, and therefore solutions, so that you may move on with your life.

Licensed in Florida and Tennessee. Services available via Telehealth. Therapy is a partnership. I believe it is important to build a relationship with my client. It is my intent to provide a safe space to work together. I believe it is helpful to assist clients with acknowledging feelings and noticing thoughts with a commitment to actions that align with what is important to the client. I believe in the client's own healing capacity with work on core beliefs about oneself with kindness and self care. Compassion, empathy, and respect for all my clients is what I try to express in the very first session.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
