Receiving the right type of support in difficult circumstances is important. My practice uses empathy and an authentic collaborative relationship to help individuals and families to adjust to their challenges. Successful resolution to even life‚Äôs most difficult situations is possible and removing the barriers that get in the way can be accomplished. I am a Florida Licensed Mental Health Counselor. For more than 15 years, I have worked with adolescents and their families in various capacities addressing behavioral and substance use issues to establish sustainable solutions. My approach includes the use of evidence-based psychotherapeutic techniques designed to shape behaviors.Treatment is individualized and incorporates cognitive behavioral and family system applications. By offering home-based treatment in addition to clinic-based, my practice makes available for individuals and families (based on need) en vivo behavioral assessments and intervention development and implementation in a natural environment.
