Hi! I provide therapy for adults in the States of Colorado, Florida, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Vermont- in English, French & Spanish.
Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Boca Raton, FL
One of my specialties is therapy from a secular approach. You've been considering therapy for some time, but you hesitate. You've got this nightmare scenario of sitting across from a therapist week after week, ducking religious vocabulary you don't relate to, feeling judged, feeling cornered, and needing to defend yourself-- instead of doing the important work you went to therapy for in the first place. Imagine being in therapy with me, certain that your secularity is 100% accepted.
I specialize in Culture Shock & Cultural Identity Issues. Cultural assimilation is not just some fun theoretical concept one learns in school. Doing it successfully can mean the difference between getting a job and going hungry, between having friends or not having friends, between being shunned or being accepted in your new community, and between surviving and thriving.
I specialize in Post-Divorce Growth, and help clients who are either going through a divorce and are wondering if they'll ever get to the other side, or, who just got through one and are still catching their breath. It's rough, and certainly not for the faint hearted, and finding one's footing is easier said than done.
I specialize in helping clients with empty nest syndrome. It seems like just yesterday your kids were little babies in your arms - and now, just like that, they moved out. Regardless of whether they left for college, are now with another parent or left for another reason, it can be tough. Your child leaving home can be a hard chapter to navigate, but the good news is that on the other side of all of this you can find a new sense of identity, perhaps one which is even stronger and more vibrant.
Is your job getting you down? Are you feeling burned out, and not sure how to turn it around? Maybe at this point you can't even remember why you accepted the job in the first place. Or perhaps you're an entrepreneur and can't seem to create the work-life balance you'd thought you would have achieved by now. You've noticed that getting through the week is getting harder and harder, and the coping strategies that used to work just aren't cutting it anymore. No worries - I can help!
Whether its with a romantic partner, a friend or a family member, relationships can be challenging. Are you wondering how to get out of the loop of endless arguments, feeling bad about yourself, feeling powerless to change things and then caving in to old beliefs that keep you stuck? Fast forward to a few weeks from now. You're starting to see a glimmer of hope. You understand more about relationships and how they work, and you're learning about setting and keeping boundaries.
All you know is that anxiety is certainly is not 'only in your head' if only because you also feel it all over your body. Depending on the situation, your symptoms range from sweaty palms, a runaway heartbeat, a pit in your stomach, feeling lightheaded -- all the way to a full-blown panic attack. Fast forward to a few weeks or months from now. Thanks to the work you've done in therapy, you're feeling less anxious, more relaxed, and you finally have a plan to curb your anxiety.
Having depression is hard to explain to those who have never felt it. You're doing your best to put one foot in front of the other and your daily tasks take so much effort it's not even funny. Fast forward to a few weeks or months. You've been going to therapy, and thanks to the work you've done with me, you're starting to feel better. You learn about how your thoughts affect your interpretation of things, and are feeling more proactive. You're feeling stronger and more anchored.
