I utilize Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), as well as Internal Family Systems ( IFS ), and others.
Asking for help takes courage and is a big step in the right direction! Possibly you have emotional pain from a previous trauma, loss or life transition. You may be experiencing trauma symptoms or grief from a new loss or a previous loss. Perhaps you are dealing with increased stress or anxiety. Or you might be seeking to create new routines, roles and patterns in your life or relationships by healing old attachment wounds. Therapy can help guide you in the direction you want to go, help move you through the pain, and back into a place of joy.

My extensive experience includes helping people in the community for 18+ years, 10+ years in my private practice with individuals, couples and multi partner relationships, mental health disorders, affairs and family systems .
My goal is to help people find meaning and purpose in life, find common pathways between actions and thoughts and create a safe place to find positive solutions. Empathy, compassion and understanding help me to take a relational, non-judgmental approach to my work. I provide direct, simple and straight forward techniques of communicating that are instrumental in helping people stay grounded, focused and validated. I prefer to individualize treatment for each client by choosing the specific type of theory or therapy that meets individual, relational or family needs that target the desired outcome of therapy

I’m Internal Family Systems -informed and incorporate somatic + mindfulness-based approaches into sessions.
Healing happens when we feel safe enough to show up exactly as we are. All parts of you are welcome here. I’m not here to change you or fix you. I don’t think you are “broken” or that there's anything "wrong" with you. Together we'll create an accepting + compassionate environment, with respect for your intuition + body's wisdom underlying all that we do. I’m trauma + social justice-informed and view therapy through an intersectional lens (mind, body, environment, culture). During our time together, we’ll likely look at environmental factors (interpersonal, economic, oppression) that create individual/collective stress and trauma.

I utilize my training in IFS , EFT and CBT.
It’s a new day with endless possibilities, but you feel the dread in the pit of your stomach again. You feel the pressure to live the life you’ve been dreaming of, but you can’t quite figure out what is holding you back. Some areas of your life might feel right on track, while other areas are stressful or chaotic. You are longing to feel content and at peace with who you are. You are ready to explore your past and your present – to really dig into the wounds that have shaped you and find a way to heal and feel free to be yourself. You are ready for therapy - to have someone who truly hears you and supports you. I am here.

My primary modalities are EMDR, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), and Internal Family Systems ( IFS ).
Our everyday reactions are a representation of our trauma, pain, and learned behaviors. Every trigger is wired to an emotional experience that we have programmed into our brains as a guide to protecting ourselves. We then use these experiences to reinforce behaviors and keep us safe from reliving past pain. Problems occur when our circumstances change, but we do not adapt our beliefs, insecurities, and negative self-messages along with them. Reprocessing emotional experiences, altering coping mechanisms, and developing an understanding of your needs is an important part in healing.

I am theoretically oriented toward psychodynamic psychotherapy and Internal Family Systems .
The therapeutic process of talking through life issues with a skilled clinician can provide openings, shifts and relief that are deeply healing and life changing. Feeling seen, heard and understood by another can help one compassionately turn inward to untangle, explore and heal those wounds. There are ways we have developed that don't always serve us. The only way through is with patience, curiosity and compassion with the ongoing goal of learning how to be our own best support. It can be helpful to have a guide on this process who provides containment, safety, connection and knowledge.

My approach is Attachment- and Mindfulness-Based and I am trained with the IFS Institute to apply the Internal Family Systems model.
You are feeling disconnected from yourself and your loved ones, are struggling to juggle the different aspects of your life and are having a hard time coping with past experiences or present challenges. You seem to have trouble recognizing who you are today, feel like your emotions are overwhelming and are missing a sense of peace. But one thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to find the competence and confidence in your decision making and regain control and harmony. Most of all, you’re ready to find joy in the day-to-day again. You’re ready for a new “normal”, and I can help you get there.

Often people seek therapy because they have an idea of what is wrong and what they want to change in their life. Other people don’t know, yet they know that something could be better or is missing. If you haven’t been successful in what you seek, it doesn’t mean that you are weak or that it is not possible, or that there is anything wrong with you. Sometimes we know what the barriers are. Sometimes we don’t. Sometimes it is just a matter of looking in the right place.

Worrying about food and what you are eating (or not eating) day in and day out is exhausting. Feeling uncomfortable and like you don’t belong in your own body is ridiculously stressful. It feels like all of your thoughts are consumed by what your next meal will be, avoiding food altogether, or picking your body apart. You are constantly bombarded by “health” and “wellness” advice on social media and are pretty damn confused by it all. It’s exhausting to have to live this way and feel like no one understands what you are going through. You may have never talked about this to anyone, or when you have it doesn't seem to help.

What type of Tampa 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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Tampa?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
