Announcement icon During this time I am offering Telehealth( phone/video) as allowed per insurance. Self pay via PayPal or Venmo is also possible.
I provide therapy for depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD and life transitions using a humanistic approach. I work with all ages starting age 5 and up in my practice. I help others deal with divorce issues, use positive psychology and CBT to improve self-esteem, motivation and confidence. I include interpersonal hypnotherapy, guided meditation and mindfulness training as techniques when requested or suggested. What I love most is to work with children, adolescents, individuals and families in therapy. I teach coping, social and communication skills. I love to help others deal with life challenges to help them feeling happy, productive and whole again.
I completed intensive 500 training hours from the Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy. I am a member of the International Association of Interpersonal Hypnotherapists that requires ongoing training. We must inform clients of their rights, practice under state regulations and assure ethical practice. Clinical hypnosis helps overcome various addictions, insomnia, anxiety and trauma and more.
I have a unique understanding of those dealing with disabilities as an Educational Specialist in Psychology. Intelligence and learning, experience with FBA's, programming and data analysis, are just part of what I know extensively. Federal and state rules and regulations for IEP's and 504 plans are second nature to me.
