Solution oriented

Have you experienced trauma, abuse, relationship challenges or loss? Do you struggle with codependency? Do you have difficulty setting healthy boundaries? Do you want to build self-esteem and confidence? Have your attempts to create meaningful changes in your life been met, repeatedly with short term-success? Are you losing hope with the prospect of a prosperous meaningful future? Hi! My name is Cassie, and I'm a Christian, faith-based therapist licensed and located in the sunny (and sometimes rainy!) state of Florida. The questions posed above speak to challenges many of us are regularly faced with, but may find it difficult to speak about. Instead, we may find ourselves harboring feeling of shame and guilt which blocks us from pursuing and receiving the help we need. Well there is good news! Therapy with me is conducted within a safe, judgment-free space, where I provide opportunities for you to face those challenges and express those feelings. My approach to treatment can incorporate impartation of biblical wisdom, recommendations for the development of affirming spiritual disciplines, and prayer. At each stage of treatment, we'll collaborate to assess and engage in a way which best fits you. And if you're not seeking faith based counseling? No problem at all! With over six (6) years of professional experience, and a host of treatment methods to rely on, you can rest assured in my ability to meet you uniquely in your place of need. Ultimately, my desire is to help you reach a place of freedom and peace, where you can begin experiencing incremental yet impactful improvements to your overall wellbeing so your life and relationships can bear the fruit they were always meant to.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I believe you are the expert of your own story and have many God-given strengths that will assist you on your life journey. My job is to help you identify them, and work towards utilizing them to their fullest capacity. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to walk along side you. Prior and current clients have shared that they feel a sense of calm working with me; that they feel heard, supported, and understood. I have also been known to gently challenge current unhelpful/unhealthy patterns of thinking and behavior to help clients reach new perspectives. I am thrilled when clients and I build trust overtime. Regardless if clients experience set backs or small successes, I am a pioneer for their process.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. My areas of expertise include: anxiety & depression, relationship issues, family of origin issues, PTSD, co- dependency, childhood trauma and abuse, sexual abuse, domestic violence, homelessness, post-abortion recovery, and Christian, faith-based counseling.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

In simplest terms, I work best with people who are overwhelmed with life's challenges, don't know where to turn or what to do next, but are searching for answers and are willing to put in the work to find them. I believe there’s hope for everyone, even those feeling utterly defeated in this season of their lives. If you’re here, then take it as evidence; the time for healing is now. Head over to my schedule, book an initial session and let's get started!
