My Approach to Therapy
I decided to become a therapist in order to help others the way that I was helped. My struggles with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), dyslexia, and other learning differences have made me both resilient and more empathetic to others who also struggle with life’s challenges. For several years I have also faced some additional health issues which have enabled me to connect in a unique way with clients who suffer from chronic health conditions.
I am a Miami-Based Telehealth Therapist working with Children (Ages 8+) Teens Adults
I can help with general psychotherapy for a variety of challenges, including:
I provide specialized therapy for the following areas of treatment:
You do not have to let Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) interfere with school, work or relationships. Learn effective skills and strategies to handle your daily challenges and live a happier, more successful life.
Living with a chronic illness can be emotionally and physically debilitating. Learn to better manage the pain, fatigue, stress, and other symptoms related to chronic illness and enhance the quality of your life.
You can recover from trauma, anxiety, depression, and other distressing life experiences using EMDR, an effective and proven psychotherapy method designed to resolve unprocessed memories in the brain.
You no longer have to live in fear, feel on edge, or be emotionally numb. Learn how to manage troublesome feelings and emotions, reduce flashbacks, and regain a sense of overall safety and well-being.
Being depressed can make you feel helpless and worthless. You are not. Learn skills that allow you to take back your life so that you can feel happier, healthier, and more hopeful.
You do not have to constantly feel overwhelmed, tense, and filled with worry. Learn how to calm your mind and take back control of your thoughts and feelings.
The first step is often then hardest. Embark on your journey today and let me guide you through the healing process.
Questions About Therapy
I provide therapy for adults, adolescents, and children (age 8 and up) who reside in the state of Florida.
Individual therapy sessions are 50 minutes, which is the industry standard for therapy sessions. If we decide to do an EMDR processing session, it is 2 hours long.
I am not a medical doctor and therefore do not prescribe any type of medication. Many of my clients find medication helpful, but many of them also progress well in therapy without medication. If you would like to be evaluated for psychiatric medication, I can refer you to a qualified psychiatrist. If you are already taking medication, I can coordinate care with your doctor.
We have all been through some difficulties at one point in our lives. Often we can handle those challenges ourselves. However, there comes a time when navigating through difficulties by yourself might be too much to handle on your own. The good news is that you do not have to. Seeking a therapist to provide a helping hand is nothing to be ashamed of. On the contrary, having the self-awareness to know when to ask for help is commendable.
There are many reasons why people choose to go to therapy. Many are simply seeking self-exploration and personal growth. Others are facing challenges such as:
- Fears and phobias
- Unhealthy coping patterns
Working with a therapist is not a quick fix. Being open, honest, and facing your traumatic events from your past can be difficult. In order to get past your past, you need to confront the issues that continue to plague you. A good therapist will:
- Offer guidance
- Provide support
- Help you achieve your goals
- Provide insight and perspective

I do not accept any form of insurance. However, if you have insurance that covers out-of-network therapy sessions, I will be glad to generate a receipt (superbill) with the date of service, diagnosis, tax ID, NPI number, and other information the insurance company needs to reimburse you if they cover our session(s).
Please note that submitting a superbill for your insurance claim means that I will need to give you a mental health diagnosis.
