Consultation is intended for clients who would like to address very specific topics in a short period of time or who would like to check in periodically to get a professional opinion about a particular issue. It's a great way to get centered and clear on how to move forward.
Psychotherapy is the most comprehensive service addressing ongoing concerns such as anxiety, relationship issues, sadness, anger, feeling stuck, low self-esteem, etc. Therapy is usually once or twice per week for months or years. Therapy aims to change repetitive patterns and improve overall functioning level.

Childhood Emotional Neglect
Emotional abuse is very evident, but if you've been a victim of neglect your symptoms might have you very confused. You didn't have perfect parents but they meant well most of the time so you feel guilty saying any of what you're going through is their fault. However, you might not be living up to your potential, feel like you don't belong, feel uncomfortable in social situations, have difficulty setting boundaries, judge yourself harshly, can't identify how you feel at times, struggle with self-discipline, it's hard to calm yourself, feel empty inside, etc. Therapy can help you understand and process your feelings, gain a sense of identity, become comfortable around others, enjoy emotional intimacy and achieve your full potential as you heal and get stronger. Your past doesn't have to determine the rest of your life. Don't wait a minute longer to experience joy and peace. Life is too short to wait. Schedule a consultation today.
Strong Independent Women
Women get a lot of publicity for being dependent, emotional cry babies. However, there's a lot of women who are very independent, career-oriented, highly sexual, dislike showing vulnerability and are not very subtle when saying what's in their mind. If you identify with these last traits, you might also think that it would've been a lot easier if you were born a man. The good news is that through some exploration you can learn to get in touch with your "feminine side". Our society is full of double standards and it's infuriating that emotional comfort is typically thought of as a feminine trait. It's a disservice to both, women and men. However, we must navigate real life with all its unfairness and learn how to get out needs met. In therapy, you'll learn to fight the polarities by becoming more comfortable with your softer side without letting go of your strong assertive identity. The results show up mostly in your romantic relationships. Your current attitude might payoff at work but it sure gets in the way of romantic relationships. Here, you end up sending the wrong message. You might look like you don't care about a serious relationship or are not willing to work on it. Unfortunately, most men need women to help them get in touch with their own emotions. But if they're faced with strong independent women it could be very disarming and a very disappointing experience for both. There's a lot of emphasis on helping men express emotions and women control them. But there's not a lot of people with the expertise in helping those who don't fit that mold. That's what I've done for many years, working in Brickell with women like you. Who indeed have feelings and so much to offer. I love helping them find and keep committed loving relationships. If you're tired of being alone and misunderstood, schedule an appointment for women's counseling services near you and start getting closer to the connection you're craving for and are so capable of having.
