Many of us struggle with conflicting thoughts and emotions. Facing challenging decisions, navigating intimate relationships and family, and carrying too many responsibilities can be overwhelming and often too difficult to work though alone. Unresolved issues and traumas can lead to feeling "stuck" rather than taking steps towards finding solutions and healing. Many people resort to "quick fixes" when feeling lonely, anxious, or depressed, instead of addressing the root cause of the pain and discomfort. My experiences and training allow me to help you find tools within yourself to discover new perspectives and cultivate new skills.

Life is to short to settle for bad relationships, suffer from low self esteem, anxiety, addictions or depression. But often, finding the "right" therapist" to help you resolve these issues, can leave you feeling like you are looking for a needle in a haystack. I have been told that I have a gift of helping others. It is my sincere desire to help you get the results you desire. By helping you clarify your goals, and then by keeping each session focused on steps toward that goal, you can achieve the change you are looking for. My style and approach to therapy is never a "one size fits all" but will be customized to fit your needs.

You're sick of feeling this way. You hoped it would get better with time. You kept thinking, "I can figure it out on my own." And you've tried. But nothing's worked. You're tired & not sure where to turn. You're good at keeping up appearances, but it's wearing you down... If you can relate to this, you're not alone and you're not screwed up. Your brain is working against you, but you can learn to manage your mind & handle your negative emotions without getting hijacked by them. No one gives us a user's manual for our brain, but I can help you take control of your emotional health so you can feel better, probably pretty quickly.

I have drawn the conclusion that the only reasonable approach to therapy is to meet my clients where they are. Perhaps you are feeling sad-- that's where you are. Perhaps depression or anxiety have affected your daily functioning. Perhaps you are in a relationship that isn't working and you would like to mend things or try to figure out what to do next. You are experiencing family problems, sexual problems, identity problems, or career problems. I would be honored to co-partner with you to bring you to a place in life where brokenness is replaced by freedom and happiness.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Bradenton, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Bradenton are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Bradenton. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Bradenton
