I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida. I received my Masters of Science in Counseling in 2011 in Boca Raton, FL.
I have worked in multiple mental health settings over the years including in inpatient, outpatient, residential dual diagnosis treatment programs and community mental health clinics. I have treated both teenagers and adults with a variety of treatment issues and mental health conditions including addictions, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders and mood disorders, as well as phase of life issues, grief and loss and trauma.
For me, witnessing each client grow and change is an amazing process. Through compassion, honesty and collaboration, I provide a safe place for you to share, grow and process concerns, past and current, that are hindering you. I believe in providing each patient with practical coping tools and problem-solving strategies for longterm progress.
I assess each client's needs individually and use an integrative approach highlighted with CBT, DBT, and other strategies. We will work together create a treatment plan that best fits your therapeutic goals.
My Typical Client
Patients typically come to me when they're feeling lost, down, in a rut, self-destructive or confused. Something may have happened where they realize that they need extra support services or they notice their actions aren't in line with their values. They feel discontent, grief, sadness, guilt, shame, anxiety or disappointment about something they cannot get past.
I see this as an opportunity to motivate change. Although times like this can be painful, they are opportunities to take an introspective look at your life and challenge yourself for growth and healing. Oftentimes, they provide the opportunity to find the balance and serenity you crave.
Some people don't seek counseling and will continue to feel that they are missing something but may be too stubborn or proud to reach out for help or feel that their issue isn't "big enough" to warrant help. What they don't realize is how helpful a professional perspective can be and how refreshing it is to have a safe place to share their thoughts.
To sum this up, each patient seeks counseling for different reasons, but most recognize a need for change. Anyone who is battling with difficulties, past or current, and is open to gaining new strategies to improve their life is a perfect candidate for therapy services.
