Let go of the stigma and Have the Courage to Seek Help!

A Personalized and holistic approach

As a trauma informed therapist, I use an eclectic approach to counseling based on the individual's needs. I am certified in EMDR and DBT, trained in Mindfulness, Cognitive processing, Cognitive Behavioral and Solution Focused therapy as well as Motivational Interviewing. I offer an integrative approach to counseling to First Responders including healthcare professionals as well as health and wellness coach. My niche is providing trauma informed care to adult professionals using EMDR and cognitive processing therapy for Post Traumatic Stress Injury. I also specialized in anxiety as well as substance abuse treatment and am a certified addiction professional (CAP) from the Florida Certification Board. At Steps2serenity; I believe in the mind, body, spirit connection. It is important to understand how your negative thoughts are contributing to unhealthy behaviors causing you to spiral.  I provide my clients with a safe, non-threatening environment using an integrative approach to wellness, in order to freely dig into their personal issues and tackle their life's challenges. I assist with teaching coping skills and provide Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills training to those who struggle with suicidal ideation/self-injurious thoughts/behaviors, interpersonal problem and poor impulse control (substance abuse), in order to move you forward to becoming a healthy productive being.  It is important to me that your personal issues are addressed one step at a time (by collaborating with you in developing a personalized treatment plan) in order to help you to fully resolve the problem which brought you into counseling. Whatever circumstances that you find yourself in, I am here to help! Let's partner together and take the first step by calling today and start working on loving life again!
