I am a licensed mental health counselor in Florida as well as a certified EMDRIA-approved EMDR therapist. I specialize in working with people who feel overworked for other people in their life while feeling underappreciated and left alone, feeling confused about who they are and what they can do to gain a sense of control back in their life. I became a psychotherapist because I've experienced the need to have someone who can show me what I could not see because they have a genuine interest in my well-being and potential. Together we will find the root of your behavioral/emotional difficulties from scientific, psychological, and spiritual perspectives. You will uncover resources that can only be found in you to overcome the difficulties. Eventually, striving for wholeness will be the life journey that you will gladly take on outside of a therapy session.
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
You will have a safe space where your thoughts and feelings are heard while increasing insights into your mental difficulties, and experiencing relief from prolonged emotional suffering. Above all, I want you to have a transformative experience in finding your authentic self. I will meet where you are, and we will start a journey of healing and growth together.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
My expertise is in treating Complex trauma, PTSD, depression, anxiety, low self-worth, low self-esteem, co-dependency, poor personal boundaries, grief, stress, panic attacks, young adult issues, and issues as children of immigrants. I use EMDR therapy along with Person-centered therapy, ACT/Mindfulness, CBT, SFT, and Jungian analysis, depending on your needs and appropriateness. (*I do not offer couple therapy)
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
As a certified EMDR therapist, EMDR is my primary modality in the treatment. My approach to using EMDR revolves around believing in a person's innate ability to self-heal given proper guidance, insights, tools, and unwavering support. EMDR is going to help you retrain your body's response to your triggers, increase insights about your difficulties and what you need to move forward. You will take an active role in reprocessing unprocessed memories that negatively affect your present life. I am going to be an ever-present-ears to hear you out, guiding you through the process of getting unstuck from your past adaptively while accompanying you as a witness and support on your healing journey.
