General Questions

What are the benefits of your services?


There are too many benefits of participating in therapy to list! Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and coping strategies for a wide range of issues. Therapists, being objective, can provide a different or a fresh perspective on a problem that you have been struggling with. Some benefits of enlisting in my services are: 1. Understanding & Changing Self Defeating Behaviors
2. Learning How To Communicate Respectfully
3. Enhancing Family's Relationships
4. Mastering Social Interactions
5. Clarifying Dreams & Goals




Do you provide in-person or online counseling?


Yes! Counseling sessions are conducted via a secure and easy-to-use telehealth platform and In-person, sessions are available and are limited. (COVID protocol is in place for all in-person sessions.)




Who do you work with?


Teens & Millennials are my thing! I help work through low self-esteem, stress & anxiety, depression, adjustment, and life transitional issues, and identity development. Helping you rediscover the most daring question, "Who I am?" and build healthy relationships. Tweens/Teenagers (ages 12-18), Emerging Adults (18-25) & Young Adults (18-35) who reside in the state of Florida. I have a sweet spot for helping adolescents and young adults feel confident in themselves and explore how to create trusting relationships with others.




Do you take insurance?


No, unfortunately, I do not take insurance.




How long are the sessions?


As we enter into our therapeutic work together, we typically meet for 45-50 minutes per session. I suggest beginning with consistency, with weekly sessions, until therapeutic goals are met. Some clients attend for six to nine months, while others enjoy going to therapy for years. You’ll want to keep up your motivation as you develop an open mind, positive perspective, and healthy coping skills. Your old habits and behaviors will gradually and organically develop into positive habits. During this process, new neural pathways in your brain will form.




What are your session fees?


Read more about rates in the Get Started Tab. Please contact me for more information.




What does the first session look like?


The initial session will be an initial assessment to discuss the client’s history and needs for treatment. During this first session the client will have the opportunity to see how therapy will work, review office policies, privacy and confidentiality, as well as determine whether or not they are comfortable with the therapist.





FAQ's for Teenagers & Young Adults

Why would I see a therapist?


To talk about anything that may be on your mind. You might use therapy time to talk about things that are causing you stress or things that are bothering you. You can also share joyful experiences (friends, relationships, parents, school, etc.) To work through an issue that you don’t want to talk with parents or friends about. Perhaps you want help learning how to talk to your parents about a specific issue. A therapist can act as a mediator. To work through a problem that seems to never go away. You may want better-coping skills or to feel better about how you handle situations. To better understand yourself, your thoughts, your feelings, and your behaviors.




Will my therapist tell my parent(s) what I talk about in therapy?


No! Nope! Nah! Your therapist will only talk with your parents if you are in danger. Your therapist will discuss the rules about this during your intake session. In therapy, you do have a private place to discuss whatever is on your mind.




How can you help me as a teen, young adult and/or millennials?


As Tweens and Teens, sometimes its more than being a “normal” teen or moody teenager. The teenage years can be very overwhelming and with the support of counseling, we can address:

  • low self-esteem/lack of confidence
  • self-doubt/concerns about self-image
  • difficulty managing stress (often leading to self-injury)
  • difficulty with relationships (parents, siblings, friends)
  • inability to handle conflict
For young adults and millennials: You are older and maybe a little wiser, but that doesn't mean you have left all your mental health struggles behind. It makes sense that the same anxiety, fear, self-doubt, or depression you experienced at home might follow you beyond high school. Or maybe the new environment and new expectations are causing new doubts, stresses, and fears. we can address:
  • low self-esteem/lack of confidence
  • self-doubt/concerns about being successful in college
  • difficulty managing stress (sometimes leading to self-injury or drug/alcohol use)
  • difficulty with relationships (parents, siblings, friends)
  • inability to handle conflict
  • doubts/fears about the future
  • anxiety
  • depression
