I offer a compassionate, gentle and dynamic approach to psychotherapy. My style is authentic, nonjudgmental and supportive. I work with individuals in various kinds of distress to both relieve suffering and address the issues causing pain. I work collaboratively with patients to improve self-awareness, develop insight, and learn new ways of coping with life stressors to facilitate healing and growth. Services are provided online using a dynamic approach to therapy. I utilize the Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic approach. My gentle, client-entered approach makes therapy less intimidating.
For the past 25 years I have worked in a variety of mental health treatment settings. I have been in private practice in the Broward and Palm Beach areas, working primarily with adults and adolescents for the past 12 years.
I worked with individuals in crisis struggling with severe depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, psychosis, borderline personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, suicidality and self-injurious behaviors and I have provided HIPAA compliant online counselling since 2009.
