Counseling

My role as a therapist is to help deepen your insight into your many thoughts, feelings and experiences. Together we will focus on refining your strengths and tackling growth areas that will allow for you to be the best kind of leader, friend, parent, or romantic partner. Meeting online for counseling allows a unique opportunity to see each other at a time that is convenient for us both.

Supervision

I am available for supervision of mental health professionals working towards licensure at the doctoral or masters level in the state of Florida. We will meet once per week to discuss your ongoing cases, client documentation, and to discuss your experiences as an early career mental health professional. My background is in interpersonal and psychodynamic therapy.

About Me

Each of us is on a unique journey. I grew up as a sensitive child who followed the established rules and expectations. I had an ability to be attuned to others' emotions, but thought that going with the flow would bring me happiness.

It did not.

Only later in life I’ve learned that following the script that is assigned to us is not the same thing as living an authentic life.

My life has transformed through the relationships that allowed me to examine my own self and the assumptions I was making about myself and others.

I’ve learned that difficult and confusing experiences can be understood through talking and used to transform myself.

It is this same type of relationship that I offer my clients; a relationship that will give you a chance to transform your journey.
