My mission is to co-create with my client a specific individualized treatment plan that targets the specific problem areas that the client determines they would like to work on. This usually occurs within the first two sessions. I am able to use multiple techniques which I have trained in and been able to utilize over the past 22 years of my career as a practicing psychotherapist. Among the techniques I use most frequently are: cognitive/behavioral, relaxation/guided imagery, expressive therapies, Gestalt, grief/loss and crisis intervention.I veiw myself as an educated guide for the client who assists them in problem resoultion, recovery and better healthy choice making.I am licensed by the State of Florida to supervise LMFT interns.P.S.
