Greetings, I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I have a plethora of experience working with various populations, dealing with issues such as Substance use, Anxiety, Depression, Relationship issues, LGBTQ, Ethical Non-Monogamy/lifestyle concerns, Homelessness, Bipolar disorder, Personality disorders, and Trauma including sexual, emotional and physical abuse. My Counseling style is client-centered with the utilization of CBT, DBT, Psycho-educational, and Psychodynamic therapy. I believe we are all unique individuals living through different experiences. My goal is to help you navigate through the darkness so you can live the life you want, acquiring the coping skills and tools needed along the way. You are more than your trauma, Inner childhood wounds, and the labels placed on you. Let's work together! I'm looking forward to meeting you!
What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?
During the first session, I will provide information on my background and experience. We will discuss confidentiality and review any signed paper work. I will discuss what is bringing you to therapy, and answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding therapy.
What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?
My Counseling style is client centered with utilization of CBT, DBT, Psycho-educational, and Psychodynamic therapy. I will give homework if I feel it will be beneficial to your treatment. I also have worksheets I may utilize, and well as books I will recommend, if I feel like it will be helpful to you as well.
Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.
My biggest strength is really my experience, I have had a chance to work with a very diverse population of clients. I have worked in the school systems, Rehabilitation centers, Psychiatric hospitals and at a shelter. Clients working with me will be able to work and process through various issues without fear of judgment.
