I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida and have been licensed since 2016. I earned my Master's Degree in Counseling and Psychology from Troy University in 2013. I have been working in the mental health field since 2009 where I started as a bachelor level case manager/counselor working with people with severe and persistent mental illness.
In 2016 I left the community mental health world and started a private practice where I use mindfulness based techniques and a person centered approach to help people work through anxiety, depression, trauma and many of the other problems that go with these issues such as relationship, work problems and drug issues.
After taking some post licensure training my philosophy has become more about learning how to feel and work toward values based goals than to merely try to lessen symptoms. Often it is the avoidance of feelings that leads to bigger feelings and harmful actions. If a person learns how to mindfully observe their inner experiences they often see the symptoms come and go on their own but most importantly they learn how to live a better life and fulfillment in life is ultimately what people are looking for.
Therapy philosophies that are the most influential for me are Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Person Centeres Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
