I’m a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida with over seven years of experience. The majority of my experience has been working with adolescents and young adults where I provided individual, group and family therapy. Although most of my experience has been with adolescents and younger adults, I’ve worked with all different age groups ranging from 13-72.
I’ve worked with a wide range of issues including substance abuse disorders, depression, anxiety, ADHD, conduct disorders, family dysfunction, trauma and life transitions to name a few. I especially enjoy working with anxiety and ADHD disorders and find practical coping skills to improve overall day-to-day functioning. I believe everyone has some sort of trauma to work through which is the core of most dysfunctional symptoms.
My approach is based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, although I will meet the client where they are at with the course of treatment and consider my approach eclectic. I have extensive experience using Aggression Replacement Training (ART) with adolescents which is a 10-week, 30-hour Cognitive Behavioral group program for juvenile offenders. ART focuses on modeling pro-social skills and moral reasoning to help reduce anger issues.
