(LMHC)

About Me

I am licensed credentialed for the State of Florida as a Mental Health Therapist with over 15 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. My approach combines client centered, cognitive-behavioral, trauma focused, emotional focused, family internal system, humanistic and psychodynamic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
My approach for couples counseling is a type of psychotherapy; an approach to treatment that does not rely on medical science or prescription medications. I will use discussion therapy to coach couples through your disagreements, frustrations, betrayals, communication problems, and other issues, with the end goal that as a couple arrives at a happier, more equitable solution for both parties involved. I will assist to resolve conflict, make more thoughtful decisions in your relationships.
Couples counseling can occur during a single session or multiple sessions, over the course of days or months. Sometimes, one member of the couple works with this therapist individually, or both partners alternate seeing this therapist; then, both partners see the therapist together.
