Welcome

You have decided to seek the help of a psychologist.

Congratulations for taking this step.

*Two offices to choose from: Hyde Park – South Tampa and a NEW one in Clearwater / Safety Harbor.

Maybe you are suffering with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, or having relationship issues.

It is imperative that when participating in therapy, you develop a good relationship with the best psychotherapist that can help you. Finding the best mental health counselor / couple’s counselor that has the necessary tools suitable for your ailments is very important.

I suggest you explore my website to learn more about the types of services I can provide for you.

Types of Patients I See

Looking from outside, some would say you have it all.

Being a successful professional, a doctor, a lawyer, a CEO, an entrepreneur, a “home-manager,” or someone who is in college studying what you believe will be the path for your successful career, does not guarantee a life without challenges.

Deep inside, you know you are not well and that stress is getting to you.

Stress can feel like a sadness you cannot shake off (“Is this depression?” you may ask yourself), or the ever-present anxiety / panic feelings, frequently worrying about things, or show up as issues that come in relationships. Blended family, or divorced couples may deal with some additional set of stress with their old and new families. At times, guilty and trauma are impediments to adjusted blended families.

Maybe your stress is coming from your relationship or difficulties with colleagues or family. Difficulties with your children and the difficulties your children are encountering in life may be causing you stress. Reproductive stresses such as infertility, perinatal issues, baby loss, postpartum depression, adoption, or surrogacy are also causes of couples’ difficulties.

If you are looking for couples’ marriage therapy, couples counseling, or for a family counselor, make sure you explore my Couples’ page (see link below) to identify the symptoms of someone who needs relationship therapy.

Finding someone good for couples’ therapy can be a daunting task. Both partners must like the psychotherapist and feel that she is working for the improvement of their relationship, building a better future, and is also engaged in promoting well being for each partner.

Types of Help You Can Get

Often times people want a “quick solution.”

However, a good psychological treatment can be lengthy.

My specialties can help you resolve immediate problems, such as anxiety or behavioral issues, but only a more comprehensive treatment plan will help you with depression, grief counseling, trauma, relationship issues, etc.

Some people even opt for a more profound treatment that requires more than once-a-week visitations that can continue for many years, so they can get to the root of their problems and resolve them for life. Although a great commitment in time and money such as this should be thoughtfully considered, this type of treatment is well worth the long-term benefits gained. We will explore the best type of therapy to help with your presenting (and sometimes hidden) issues.

 

Taking the Next Step

GET STARTED

We can then proceed with a face-to-face first meeting where I will learn more about you, the history of your stress, and I will share how I will help you.

EXTRA: In the session, we will work together and explore your needs to finding a psychiatrist to complement your treatment. After an initial assessment, if there is a need to refer out to a more specialized therapist, we will do so.
