Clermont Mental Health
Clermont Mental Health provides mental health services to adults, families and couples. We support and partner with our clients as they manage blended family issues, adjust to divorce, build self-esteem, cope with loss and face life’s most difficult moments. We welcome you to a supportive, nonjudgmental environment where you can find your strengths, share your thoughts and feelings, and learn new skills to manage areas of struggle.
I am currently treating individuals, couples and families, ages 18 and over. I offer a therapeutic environment that is open-minded and nonjudgmental. As a mental health professional, I am best suited for the following issues: difficult life transitions, navigating toxic relationships, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, survivors of abuse, anger and low self-esteem. I specialize in behavior change, shifting perceptions, promoting self-care and self-advocacy. My demeanor can be described as direct, honest and genuine. I use techniques and approaches from the areas of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness. My approach is directive and solution-focused, emphasizing self-esteem and self-awareness. Diverse clients are welcomed and embraced. Clients are encouraged to be self-directed, setting their own goals while collaborating on a creative and comprehensive treatment plan. I employ practicality to address day-to-day life and living in the present. I also focus on potential neurobiological conditions and how they affect behavior, perception and emotion. I am a Clinically Certified Domestic Violence Specialist through the National Anger Management Association and the National Association of Forensic Counselors.
You may feel stuck, anxious, sad, overwhelmed, burnt out. Exhausted, pressured and struggling to cope with the inevitable ups and downs of life. Transitions, relationships, communication, and self-care can be so hard if you are feeling so low. Maybe everything looks good on the outside but inside, you are hurting. No matter what your struggle or concern, you are worthy of feeling joy, connection, comfort and stability. You are worthy of feeling better! Let's work together on your goals.
I specialize in treating teenagers and women. I am intuitive and direct. I have a good sense of humor and my style is warm and focused. I pull from a variety of therapeutic methodologies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, Narrative Therapy, Mindfulness based practices and occasional elements of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
Empowering individuals to live their best life is my objective as a counselor. Together we will discover tools and strategies that will provide support in dealing with life-stressors and challenges. These tools and strategies will promote a greater level of emotional intelligence (self-awareness, self-regulation, internal motivation, empathy and social skills). Through my extensive training, knowledge, therapeutic successes and life experiences, I am confident that I can help you see and reach for the best in yourself and overcome the many obstacles that life may bring.
We offer the following approaches to treatment
We utilize elements from each of these approaches to create an individualized, ecclectic therapeutic style that will suit your needs.
Survivors of Narcissistic Abuse and Toxic Personalities (SNAP). This group covers educational information regarding the personalities of abusers and the cycle that grips their targets. Materials presented in session will help survivors understand “How” and “Why” in order that they may begin processing their experiences in a healthy way.
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is designed to help people who suffer repeated bouts of depression and chronic unhappiness. It combines the ideas of cognitive therapy with meditative practices and attitudes based on the cultivation of mindfulness.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.
Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is an effective combination of cognitive and behavioral therapies. The goal of DBT is to transform negative thinking patterns and destructive behaviors into positive outcomes.
A respectful, non-blaming approach to counseling and community work, which centers people as the experts in their own lives. It views problems as separate from people and assumes people have many skills, competencies, beliefs, values, commitments and abilities that will assist them to reduce the influence of problems in their lives.
Concerned loved ones may seek consultation in order to assess and discuss abusive or toxic relationships. Is your loved one lost to an abusive situation? Are you trying to navigate a pathological relationship? Are you managing someone with a difficult personality? We offer education, risk assessment and guidance for families, businesses and individuals who are experiencing these types of difficulties.
