Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida with six years of experience working as a psychotherapist and clinical social worker. My favorite populations to work with are young adults, families, and couples, but I also have a special place in my heart for adolescents.
Couples counseling is a delicate dance of remaining neutral as your counselor so that everyone feels respected and heard. My counseling style is casual, conversational, warm, and fun! I'm extremely invested in what you BOTH want to work on in your counseling sessions and I pride myself on taking a non-judgemental approach with my clients so that you always feel safe to talk about what's on your mind. With that being said, I like to focus on building a good therapeutic alliance with both of you in the first conversations and gather as much information as I can so that I can better understand where you're coming from. I typically blend positive psychology, solution-focused and cognitive-behavioral counseling together depending on your unique needs. I am also well versed with the Gottman Method when working with couples, where couples are encouraged to have a shared meaning of their relationship, turn towards, instead of away from each other and keep a positive perspective.
I commend you for taking the first step to begin counseling, and I know it can be intimidating! Recognizing you need extra support is already the step in the right direction and I am excited to help spark something in you for a better wellbeing and the best version of yourself!
