My passion is helping teens and adolescents, college students, adults, and older adults in the Tampa Bay / St. Pete area struggling with anxiety and depression, as well as relationship difficulties, whether that be with friends, family, or a partner. I also enjoy incorporating mindfulness techniques as a way to enhance the mind body connection. I incorporate various modalities to tailor treatment specifically to the client. I place value on the therapeutic relationship, providing a safe and collaborative, nonjudgmental atmosphere.I emphasize finding balance, increasing the mind-body connection, and promoting self-compassion so you can feel confident, self-assured, and balanced. Through the use of coping tools, improved communication skills and CBT, we can become more in tune with ourselves as a whole, and able to grow to a healthier whole individual.I offer an easy-going, genuine style and strive to create a compassionate therapeutic environment. I believe a safe environment is key to explore therapeutic issues and place an emphasis on the goal of helping while empowering. I value placing an emphasis on treating the person as a whole rather than placing an emphasis on a disorder. Find your balance now.
