Clients bring a wide range of concerns to my office. They experience problems with addiction, depression, loss, grief, stress, relationship problems & family dynamics. Many of my clients are high achieving people struggling w/ a problem. I draw upon my clients' strengths to assist them with making meaningful changes that make a difference in their lives. Because medication combined with psychotherapy is sometimes necessary, I'm available for confidential consultation with your physician or psychiatrist. If you don't have one who can prescribe medication for you, I can provide you with referrals for an evaluation w/ a psychiatrist

"Let's finally stop just talking about your problems, and begin doing something about them." I've found that at the core of most of our troubles is deeper conflict between our Values and Actions. This inconsistency may have been caused by past experiences, traumatic events or a genetic predisposition. Regardless of the source of the problem, let's take a more active approach to feeling happier and healthier. Whether you are seeking help in your career, looking to improve your relationship, having problems with the kids or struggling with anxiety, let's get started. The time is now!

Licensed in FL, GA, & CA- I knew I was called to be a mental health therapist when I was 11. How else was I going to fix my life after my parents damaged me :-) After growing up in foster care, abused & abandoned, I spent decades feeling lost & helpless. At 37, I finally learned how to heal myself. I went on to get my PhD in Mental Health Counseling, a Hypnotherapy degree, & became an author of self-improvement books. I went on to work in women's in-patient & co-ed out-patient substance abuse facilities, a psychiatric hospital, private practice, the military, low income families, and wrap around services for foster children.

At times in the quiet corners of our minds we look out at our lives and feel the weight of the years gone by. We feel stagnant, distant, lost, and tangled in circumstances that seemingly won't change. Shame fills us and we begin to look for distractions from the daunting task of living. Despite the busy streets that surround us we feel alone, almost as if fate had singled us out to live in quiet desperation. Change is hard, but few ever seem to grasp what that means. If you feel there is truth in my words, I would welcome the opportunity to help you. I welcome the chance to work with you and help you find what you seek within.

Pain travels through families until someone is ready to feel it and face it. No matter how hard we try, sometimes we still end up in the same patterns in relationship. You might be feeling stuck. I can help to break those patterns by identifying the reason they are happening to why you are attracted to a certain type. As children, we have little to no real choice in anything and you may have "forgotten" or never considered that you are deserving of a choice, an opinion at least a consideration. I hope to provide a space where you feel considered and deserving of exploring your choices.

Having a child who is struggling academically, emotionally or socially can be disheartening. We all want the best for our children. Finding the right psychologist to evaluate and treat your child is crucial. I understand a parent's desire to find a warm and caring clinician who can not only help their child feel safe to express themselves, but who can teach them to develop strategies to manage difficult emotions. I have over 20 years of experience providing therapy and assessment services to children and adolescents. I firmly believe in the importance of working closely with both parent and child in order to achieve success.

Are you looking for a therapist because your relationships are out of sorts? Are you feeling stuck, depressed, anxious, isolated or afraid? Is this troubled relationship with yourself, your life partner, your children, your parents, your co-workers? Relationships affect all aspects of our lives. Communication, anger, substance abuse and life's traumas affect all of these relationships. I believe that trauma and other life disruptions are at the heart of what ails us emotionally. We don't have to live with the fall-out from negative life events forever; there are specific things we can do to heal.

My ideal client is you. My goal of therapy is to meet the client exactly where they are at and collaborate on the clients’ needs and goals. I work with clients to look at their patterns and behaviors by making the unconscious conscious. So much of what a person is struggling with has to do with blind spots and unconsciously learning to live out of habitual maladaptive patterns. Addiction has been a huge part of my career in the addiction field. I look at addiction as an unhealthy and a lot of time detrimental coping mechanisms. I work with clients, no matter what their addiction or lack of addiction, to live a full and happy life.
