I believe we are incredibly resilient, even when we feel anything but. I offer a warm and safe environment in which we both can share in a dialogue that encourages you to speak as your most authentic self so you can begin to move forward in your life. I work with adults (18 years old and up) and do individual, couples, and family counseling. Family counseling also includes working with an adult and their parent or two adult siblings. Because we live inter-connected, couples and family counseling is a very helpful tool for the complex dynamics of the most meaningful relationships of our lifetime. Addressing and restoring these key connections can shift how you thrive in relation to yourself, as well as all other relationships. My job is to make sure everyone is seen and heard equally, to facilitate a safe space for communication, and to clear a path for difficult issues to be worked through. My specialties include depression, self-esteem, bulimia/binge eating, codependency/relationships, LGBTQ+ issues, chronic illness/loss, and compassion fatigue. Please note, I provide exploratory counseling- I do not provide evaluations/letters of recommendation, etc.
My practice includes two locations, one in South Tampa and another in New Port Richey, with evening and weekend hours. My office manager, Jennifer, will be happy to answer any questions you may have. She is available Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am-1:00pm and Wednesdays and Fridays from 12:00pm-4:00pm. The following insurances are covered. If your insurance is not listed here, call your insurance company and check if your plan will authorize me under your “Out of Network” benefits. Private pay is also accepted on a sliding scale that typically ranges from $70-100 for a 50 minute session (see Fee Schedule).
