Hi, I'm Chelle. I know that you are looking for someone to just really see and hear you. I'm so glad that you found me.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Miami, FL
The thing about dissociative disorders is that they hide, so it is likely that you may come to see me for depression or anxiety, and when we meet, you might have been previously diagnosed and treated for all kinds of disorders. It's okay, we will figure it out. It takes a lot of time and perseverance, but the worst is behind you.
Anxiety is one of those things that requires our attention. It is when we try to ignore it that it grows and overpowers us. Notice, acknowledge, and move on. Sounds easy, but I know better. That is why we work on coping skills, and may use hypnosis or EMDR to process specific triggers or issues.
Are you LGBT+? Do you question yourself and your relationships? It's okay. The truth is everybody has questions. The really smart people look for answers. I'm so glad you found me.
My work is tailored to the individual client. I work with attachment theory in mind and am extremely attuned to how the client -therapist relationship is critical to growth. I am also mindful of the unconscious issues that underlie presenting symptoms and behaviors. EMDR, hypnosis, art, movement, CBT are tools to be utilized with care. There is no "one size fits all." Above all, I am trauma informed and sensitive to hidden issues.
