I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in Florida with over 20 years of experience working as a counselor and psychotherapist. I have worked with teens who have experienced a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, eating disorders, bullying, and relationship issues. The teen years can be challenging and difficult, but they don't need to be. I have helped many teens navigate their way through the turmoil they face in today's world.
My counseling style is sensitive, warm, and supportive. I come from a person-centered approach which involves treating my clients with respect, dignity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and solution -focused processes. My clients enjoy the challenges presented in sessions and find the changes they make are the changes they seek; it just was not in their conscious thoughts. People usually have the answers inside them and just need help finding their way to make the changes they seek.
Seeking help is difficult, we must admit to ourselves that we cannot figure out this problem on our own. Or perhaps, we just want to improve our quality of life and become more productive, more independent, or more powerful. People seek help for many reasons. Helping people is my passion. I love to see the changes my clients make.
I believe that any good relationship is based on trust, and I promise to create a safe space for you to be heard and validated. I am described as compassionate, gentle, and kind but can also be firm when it is needed. It is important to note that I practice unconditional regard and will never judge or shame you.
Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. I look forward to working with you!
