Life is weird. It’s stressful, complicated, confusing, and painful, there’s no doubt. There’s something beautiful about being human and having a human experience with emotions. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable to acknowledge the pain you are in, it can feel like no one understands, you may feel stuck in attaining the life you desire, or that your fears and worries stop you from reaching your goals. We're all imperfect, and often find ourselves in a dark space, and that's okay. It’s where the beauty and humanness of us lies. Sometimes we need help embracing who we are. Asking for help can be scary and daunting, but I am here for you!

Life can be difficult. Often, we are faced with issues and circumstances that can be challenging at best, and most of us were not taught the skills to help us successfully navigate through our experiences. We feel the pressure to please others while forgoing our own needs & feelings. We all want to feel more joy in our lives, but we don't always know how to achieve it.

What is holding you back from living your most fulfilling life? Fears, depression, anxiety, panic, hopelessness, trauma, childhood wounds still lingering? I am here to lead you on a journey of self discovery and healing. I view therapy as a collaboration and as a therapist I am an active participant and guide. While I have worked with many different types of clients and mental struggles, I sub-specialize in mind body/ neural circuit disorders such as chronic pain, IBS, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and female chronic pain syndromes. I am fascinated in neuroplasticity, how our brains can change, and how we can heal from these syndromes!

Beginning therapy can be one of the most difficult things we do. It can also be the most rewarding. It is stepping into the unknown and taking an unfamiliar path to a destination that may seem completely out of reach. Therapy is a journey and I will be your travel companion. It is my firm belief that as humans, we just want to be seen and heard. In my practice, I strive to create an environment that is safe, nurturing and most importantly, free of judgement so that I can both see and hear you.

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.

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards."- Kierkegaard. Are you feeling stuck and unable to move forward from unhealthy behaviors, maladaptive patterns, negative thoughts and feelings, anxiety or stress? Do you wish your life was more fulfilling, better or different than it is but struggle to make a change? I understand how scary and challenging it can be to take that first step. However, I also believe that achieving an adequate, satisfying, and productive life with the right support is possible. Together we can explore the underlying reasons that are holding you back and identify new ways of coping.

Are you looking to overcome a substance use disorder or any kind of addictive behavior (e.g. food addiction). Do you feel like you have tried so many times to be sober but just can't understand why you keep relapsing? My approach to treating these disorders is holistic but also can work with the 12 step model. I look at what may be driving this behavior the "underlying core issues" rather than focusing on symptoms alone. I do not see clients who are actively using drugs or alcohol. I am able to counsel family members of addicts.

My background has been psychodynamic, where one's early upbringing, culture, and environment are explored along with the persons present day struggles and concerns. I also have experience with cognitive behavioral treatment as well as mindfulness and relational therapy. Because everyone is unique, I like to provide the kind of treatment that will be most beneficial for those I meet. I take most PPO insurance as well as fee for service.

An act of transformation begins with the acknowledgement that you have begun to "outgrow" your current self and present circumstances. Change and transition can be daunting. But the transformation to your best self is profound, and typically life altering. Whether the transition you are facing is a shift in relationship (divorce, loss of a friend/family member, new parenting, or "empty nest" parenting), a job/career change, college entry, or simply growing up from an adolescent to an adult, I am here to encourage and support, as you navigate your challenges.
