Great to meet you!
Welcome! I am a Florida-based Psychotherapist. I was born in Chicago and raised in Dublin, Ireland, before moving to sunny Florida. I completed my Master’s Degree in Counseling and Human Development from Troy University and have a Ph.D. (abd) in Clinical Psychology. I am licensed in Florida as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC).
I work with Adults, Adolescents, and Children. My specialties include Trauma (PTSD), Grief, Depression, and Anxiety.
A bit about my approach to therapy
My approach to therapy is collaborative with you. I have over 25 years of experience as a therapist and with many different types of therapies. I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. EMDR Therapy is highly effective in resolving traumas, phobias, intrusive memories, depression and anxiety. In addition, I have advanced Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) skills.
I use a secure HIPAA-compliant video conferencing platform.
What you can expect from our first session
Healing doesn't mean the damage never existed. It means the damage no longer controls your life. You are doing your best, but sometimes your emotions frighten you and leave you feeling out of control or unmotivated. Sometimes you may not recognize the person you have become.
I can help you heal this damage that you feel inside. Together we can create a treatment plan that works for you. As a result, you will gain the self-acceptance, awareness and empowerment to make positive shifts in your life.
