Development tools for a better you
Seeing adolescents and adults
Life can be difficult, but it does not have to be. Therapy is one of the best options to overcome personal or everyday struggles. In therapy I provide a warm, safe environment that promotes personal growth and self -fulfillment.
Therapists take many steps to understand each individual’s personal needs through all phases of the therapeutic relationship. I specialize in three areas: Trauma/Abuse (PTSD), Divorce Recovery, and Relationship Issues.Unresolved trauma can often manifest itself into other areas, which can lead to depression and negative emotions. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) treatment modality, which is used to resolve the most difficult trauma. Psychotherapy is much more effective and efficient when talk therapy is combined with EMDR. I have also received training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), used with individuals, couples and families to look deeper into their emotions. In addition to my primary focus, I have extensive training in eating disorders and weight management. My approach to counseling is individualized to each client’s needs. I tend to focus on Cognitive Behavioral,Reality, and Family Systems Therapy. Homework is often given, which tends to reach positive results much faster. I also have a Christian worldview and often incorporate the Christian approach to help reach one’s full potential.
My undergraduate degrees are in Psychology and Health Science from University of Central Florida and my Masters degrees are in General Psychology and Counseling Psychology. I have spent over 20 years as a mentor and life coach for those in need within Orange County Public School Systems and homeless in shelters throughout Central Florida.
I have personally experienced many extreme trials, which I overcame through my faith and years of intense therapy. I have two sons and a very special Labradoodle. Once my boys went to college, I decided to get my Masters and embark on a new path of helping individuals attain their personal goals and gain new self promoting strategies. Together we will create a new path to begin a life of total well being and healthy functioning.
There were times when I thought life was truly over, only to find it was a start to an amazing beginning. “The TOUGHER the trail in life the GREATER the TRIUMPH in life“.
