Hi there, I'm Tiffany, a dedicated Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over a decade of professional experience, currently licensed in the sunny state of Florida. I have worked in the mental health field in various roles since 2007. My journey to mental healthcare began in my teens when I became the go-to person in my friend group for support. Recognizing the fulfillment in helping others navigate life's challenges, I decided to turn this passion into a rewarding career. Witnessing individuals become the best versions of themselves continues to inspire me. I pride myself on fostering an open-minded, non-judgmental space where clients feel comfortable sharing their thoughts and experiences. My passion lies in supporting adults facing challenges such as depression, anxiety, stress, and low self-esteem.

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

In our initial session, we'll start with introductions and then shift the focus to discussing your experiences and the reasons behind your decision to pursue therapy. I'll be asking questions to gather essential information, aiming to understand your unique perspective and build the initial therapeutic connection. This exploration will guide me in formulating a personalized plan that we can collaboratively address in subsequent sessions, tailoring our approach to the specific challenges you're encountering.

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

My greatest strength as a therapist lies in my capacity to cultivate a warm and empathetic therapeutic environment. I pride myself on my compassionate and understanding communication style, which helps clients feel at ease, creating a trusting and non-judgmental space. This quality is instrumental in building robust therapeutic alliances and fostering a sense of safety for clients to openly engage in the therapeutic process.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

In my practice as a therapist, I have found tremendous value in incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to support clients grappling with anxiety, depression, and self-esteem issues. This approach allows me to collaboratively work with individuals, guiding them through a process of self-discovery, empowerment, and fostering a positive self-image. Together, we explore the intricate connections between thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, identifying automatic and distorted thought patterns associated with anxiety, depression, and self-esteem. Through challenging and reframing these negative thoughts, we aim to ease the impact on emotional well-being and enhance self-esteem. By pinpointing and modifying behaviors that perpetuate challenges, we foster change in the cycles that contribute to emotional distress and affect self-esteem. Through setting realistic goals, including those related to self-esteem, we cultivate a sense of accomplishment, motivation, and a foundation for a more positive self-perception. The development of practical coping strategies, such as relaxation techniques and stress management, further empowers individuals to navigate challenges and boost self-esteem. In cases of depression, anxiety, and self-esteem issues, we incorporate behavioral activation, exploring activities that bring joy and fulfillment to counter the impact of depressive symptoms on self-esteem. Active participation through homework assignments reinforces the skills developed in therapy, contributing to a positive self-image and overall well-being. The goal is to build a toolkit of skills and strategies for ongoing use, nurturing self-esteem and empowering individuals to maintain progress and prevent relapse. Our journey isn't just about treating symptoms; it's about empowering individuals to take an active role in their mental well-being, fostering self-discovery, empowerment, and a positive self-esteem. I am honored to guide clients through this transformative process and witness their growth, confidence, and positive self-regard.
