About My Clients
Are you constantly feeling worried or unmotivated about life? Have you ever felt an overwhelming feeling of sadness or bits of irritability? Together as a team, we will identify triggers, work on self-awareness, and create a tailored plan to help cope with daily and past struggles. I have experience working with children, pre-teens, adolescents, and adults experiencing: depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, and attachment struggles.
My Background and Approach
I am a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern licensed in the state of Florida for the last two years working towards LMHC licensure. My therapeutic approach relies heavily on the challenges you are experiencing and your personal preference. I use Gestalt therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness to help my clients overcome their challenges and instill confidence and autonomy. The sessions range from 50-60 minutes and may include homework to help you incorporate techniques used in the session into your everyday life to overcome challenges. Collaboratively as a team, we will work on identifying problems that are not allowing you to live your life to the fullest in order to find solutions to help you be in charge!
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I support the Black Lives Matter movement, I am an active LGBTQ ally and I believe that all humans deserve basic human rights to be respected and be in control of their bodies. I have also been in your shoes, as a teen I suffered from anxiety and depression and through my own therapy have been able to learn strategies to move past it and have control of my life again. This experience helps me empathize with the complicated feelings that someone attending therapy for the first time may feel as it can be scary, nerve-wracking, or even exciting. I hope you know that it’s okay to not be okay and that I’m here to help you take control of your life again. I value meeting you where you are at in your journey and creating a connection that will foster independence and resilience. I truly believe in this work and find joy in connecting with clients and creating a comfortable space to work on your goals. I encourage you to take the risk and see what could happen!
