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 special interests include: relationships, highly sensitive people, self-esteem/identity, existential issues around meaning, emotional eating, LGBTQIA+ 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, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am-1:00pm, Tuesdays from 12-4, and Fridays from 10:00pm-2:00pm. I accept most major insurances and private pay based on a sliding scale that typically ranges from $70-125 for a 50 minute session (see Payment tab).
