Do you feel like you are being held back because of a depressed mood, anxious feelings, or past trauma? Are you uncomfortable with being vulnerable, and trusting others? Are you struggling with shame or guilt? Imagine having meaningful relationships, feeling confident, and having more control over your life. What would that look like?
Clients can expect to feel heard, understood, and empowered as well as walk away with skills to manage negative emotions and impulses. I enjoy helping my clients solve their problems by educating them on methods or skills that will help to stop worry, calm anxiety, improve mood, and end patterns of negative thinking. I am certified in Trauma Focussed Cognitive Behavioral Therapy which is typically utilized with persons with a trauma history, PTSD, or depression. I am certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy which has great efficacy with personality disorders.
I am a qualified supervisor for registered interns seeking licensure as a Clinical Social Worker. I am also a certified mindfulness practitioner which has great outcomes with anxiety and stress and am a certified life coach for individuals who are not seeking psychotherapy. Emotional Freedom Techniques otherwise known as EFT or Tapping are also utilized for phobias, anxiety, cravings and addiction, and complex trauma whereby clients learn to tap on meridian points to illicit emotional de-escalation. Lastly, I specialize in offering psychological assessments for immigration cases including asylum seekers, hardship waivers, VAWA, 601(A), U-Visas, and T-Visas. I am a Florida Board Qualified Supervisor for registered interns seeking licensure as a Clinical Social Worker.
