Welcome to Stress Free Therapy
Welcome and thank you for visiting my psychotherapy website. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and National Certified Counselor providing psychotherapy services to the Winter Park and surrounding communities. My style of therapy is solution-focused, warm, and collaborative and I view each client as the expert in their own healing. My role can serve as a guide, offering hope, resources, and encouragement to clients who are experiencing dissatisfaction in life.
The decision to seek out psychotherapy or counseling can require great courage and the fact that you have come to my site suggests that you may be seeking some supportive counseling for yourself or a loved one. Congratulations for taking the step to find some answers for yourself in improving some aspect of your life.
We all experience emotional struggles, life changes, or obstacles that can create barriers to experiencing the happiness we want in our lives. Sometimes, we may feel we are unable to make improvements on our own to feel more satisfied. This is the point where psychotherapy can be beneficial, helping you to discover the answers to your discontent, stress, sadness or lack of emotional connection in your relationships.
My style of psychotherapy utilizes a Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic (CBT) approach which helps clients to understand that their thoughts, feelings and behaviors may not be healthy or beneficial. CBT helps us to understand that when we change unhealthy thinking patterns, we can begin to feel better and our behavior then, follows this emotional state and we respond to life circumstances in a more constructive and positive way.
As clients begin to understand the unhealthy patterns of thinking that may be holding them back from a more fulfilling life, they can begin to make changes in their thoughts and attitudes which result in feelings of success, a sense of empowerment, and increased contentment. My mantra for all clients is to “never give up” until you reach your goals. I would be honored to walk alongside you in helping you to achieve a greater sense of joy, connection or purpose in your life.
