Hello! I have been working with children , adolescents and families for more than 10 years. I work well with Oppositional Defiance, Aggression, Behavioral Issues and Conflict Resolution. I have heard many times from my clients that I am "not like other therapists" and I have a way of interacting with pre-teens and teenagers so that they feel validated and heard. I have a passion for understanding others and those around me in a way that they feel comfortable. The relationship between therapist and client should be unique and creative.

"Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished. Tell about it"-Mary Oliver. Finding a therapist you feel comfortable telling about your life, obstacles you may be facing, or areas where you desire to change can feel daunting. I strive to build a collaborative relationship with you/your child to understand your struggles, help you gain insight about issues that may be beyond your awareness, and provide you with tools and skills that will help you/your child manage emotions, and work through life’s challenges. My approach is integrative and flexible, with the use of strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy.

If you could make one thing better or different in your life, what would it be? Would it be to learn healthy coping skills to better cope with anxiety or stressors? Would it be parenting skills to add to your parenting tool box? Would it be pre-marital counseling to not only receive that discount in FL for FL marriage licenses, but to learn about yourself and your partner more? Taking the first step in seeking therapy is often the most difficult, intimidating and stress inducing, and your mental health is worth it all! You are worth taking the first step in getting what you need out of therapy. This is your journey, so step out!

I focuse on the internal and external processes of a client. My PhD research was on the effects of trauma and how to heal trauma. Through a process of releasing the cellular memory of the past and finding empowerment/self love, in addition to positive communication, one is able to move forward in a happy and healthy way. I also ran a 5 star addiction program for a psych hospital. For over 25 years I have used hypnosis, regression therapy including past life work and meditation. My clients report loving the results. These therapies help heal trauma, anxiety, depression, and give insight into negative patterns.

I have experience as an equine therapist working with children , adolescents and teens.
I believe in order to create positive change you must be empowered to create the change you desire. Many clients struggle because of situations in their marriages, relationships, careers and families that embroil them in hurt and dysfunction. In order for growth and acceptance to happen individuals need to change, adapt and in some instances. walk away from a toxic environment. As a therapist, who has walked in many shoes, my purpose is to promote efficacy, positive strengths and most importantly self compassion.
