I specialize in a Trauma Focused CBT approach and for ten years have worked with clients who've experienced traumatic events.
Experiencing betrayal from a spouse's affair or pornography addiction, experiencing physical, emotional, or sexual abuse, or other painful life circumstance can be devastating and traumatic. You may find yourself struggling with daily tasks and relationships, having trouble concentrating, on high alert, disoriented, and feeling a variety of difficult emotions. You are not alone and there is hope for recovery and healing!

Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

It is interesting how life can take us in different directions. Some that may be exciting and new, then there are times when we come across a challenge that may be difficult to handle on our own; we are unable to deal with it. Counseling can assist in the process of managing one's feelings, challenges and struggles. You do not need to manage this on your own, talking with someone can help with giving you direction, help you understand why you are feeling this way and how to make things better for yourself and /or others around you

#1 belief is healing is not linear and that there is NO one size fits all therapy! I am extremely versed in traditional therapy that is data based, but believe that often practitioners miss the mark when it comes to looking at the client as whole/ not just numbers. My approach is holistic compassionate care, that offers clients a flexible way to heal and discover new nuggets of truth, in both traditional therapy and alternative ones. I have a particular passion for empowering woman in seeking their purpose and worth. I also have a deep love for working with children/teens that have difficulty navigating through the world/emotions.

We are living in a time of uncertainty and fear. Feelings of anxiety and depression are significantly increased in people across the board. For some, symptoms from past traumatic events are being triggered. Other people are having increased conflict with their partner or they are struggling with the sudden transition into a full-time parenting/home schooling role. Many people who lived with more minor mental and emotional struggles are finding it harder to get through each day.

There is a quote by J.R.R. Tolkien, "not all those who wander are lost". I think this is a solid descriptor of my life's journey. To the outside observer, I've looked similar to a vagabond as I've "wasted my potential" walking barefoot through Orlando serving the homeless, living in Brazil while working with at-risk children abandoned to the streets, and even more recently as I've dove into therapy with men and women struggling with sexual addiction and the fallout of effects upon their loved ones. I've wrestled with my own struggles and mental health diagnosis of OCD and now have the privilege of serving others.

The season is changing and still nothing’s changed. Every morning is the same. The alarm goes off and you hit the snooze button over and over, before finally tumbling out of bed. Why? Because facing the day is drudgery. You get all the necessary tasks done, but without enthusiasm, connection, or joy. The panic and fear are just icing on the cake. That voice in your head tells you, “Don’t bother you’ll never measure up.” No one knows how hard it is to keep going. It doesn’t feel safe to tell them. Where did the voice come from? When did it start? Too long ago to remember. One thing’s for sure – nothing you’ve tried has worked.
