“My hope for clients is that when they walk into my office they will feel safe, connected and accepted.It’s a difficult decision to make the first appointment to come in. But so many say they are thankful they made the call and are enjoying life in a way they had not imagined. I love being a part of their journeys and am thankful for the honor of helping them heal the pain and fully live their lives. I hope you will call today and make an appointment. I can’t wait to meet you!“

Anxiety has become one of the most common complaints among people in our society today because we live in a world that is so unpredictable. However, anxiety is always a symptom of a greater problem going on inside the soul of a person. It can produce symptoms like: not being able to sleep, racing thoughts, short tempered behavior and the list can go on.
Depression, much like anxiety, is a symptom of a greater problem.
The symptoms in depression vary greatly from person to person and can include symptoms such as: disrupted sleeping patterns, disordered eating patterns, uncontrollable crying, feeling like you can’t get out of bed, inability to focus and the list can go on and on.
If you’ve recently lost a loved one you know what grief is. It doesn’t matter if it was sudden or expected, the pain is the same.
When you feel “stuck” in your grief, unable to move — perhaps it is time you get some help. Treating the root cause of the depression is imperative in order to gain freedom from it.

I Have Experience With…
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of trauma. Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference.
It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma similar to how the body recovers from physical trauma. The brain wants to heal itself. Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes. Learn More . . .
My Approach regarding Confidentiality
What does confidentiality in counseling really mean?
Confidentiality means that information about you is never released to others without your written permission. Everything said in therapy is confidential and will not be disclosed except when reporting is required or permitted by the HIPAA Privacy Standard or Florida state law. Exceptions to confidentiality include the following:
- suspected abuse of a child, developmentally disabled person, or a dependent adult;
- potential suicidal behavior;
- threatened harm to another, which may include knowledge that the client is HIV positive when there is an unwillingness to inform individuals with whom the client is intimately involved; and
- when required by compulsory process
Information may also be disclosed if you sign a written authorization or in the event that you file a complaint against your counselor. Payment by check, bank or credit card allows bank employees to view names of CHARIS clients. If you have caller identification on your phone, the name of the agency may appear on the monitor.
In keeping with generally accepted standards of practice, supervision and consultation may be made regarding the management of your treatment with other mental health professionals, including other counselors in the center, who are bound by the same rules of confidentiality.
In some situations cell phones may be used by counselors to contact clients. Please note that e-mail is NOT a confidential means of communication.
As summer arrives, we strive to keep the kids busy, entertained, and focused while being mindful of our budget. It is hard to come up with ideas on our own, and certainly harder if you do not plan some of it ahead of time. Her is a short list of ideas to help you get started: Gardens: ...
Memorial Day. A day for cookouts, family gatherings, and the beginning of summer. A day full of red, white and blue decorations, burgers on the grill, outside games, beach, boating and loads of fun. And while it is a good day for all those things, it was not originally intended as a day off...
This month I would like to honor the art of poetry and the contributions made by those who share their craft. As a young girl, I found that when I was struggling through a hard time and could not find the words, I could sit and write to express my own thoughts. It was easier to put pen to paper...
March brings the celebration of National Women’s History month. As we reflect on a couple of significant women who have made an impact, may we realize the amount of suffering that took place to bring about lasting change. Corrie ten Boom was one of these women. She was a Dutch Christian who...
As I prepared to attempt to honor Black History Month, I revisited a story that took place in our sleepy little town. It was a story I thought I knew, but turns out, I actually knew very little. As I read the details of the events, I felt sick to my stomach. Harry T. Moore was born back in 1905...
It was an awkward moment. That first meeting, then the second, third, fourth, and many more after that. What I learned became a part of who I am. I first began mentoring when our local high school felt that there was a need for students to form relationships where they felt heard. The Friday...
Journey to Self-Love: Learning Shame Resilience “I’d rather be dead than red on the head” was a chant I heard regularly as a kid growing up in Memphis, Tennessee. “Carrot Top” became an unwelcome nickname. I hated my red hair. As far as I was concerned, it did not serve me well and I dreamed of...
“How do I get my spouse to listen to me?” is a common question I hear from couples who come into counseling. There is frustration and a desire for connection. Whether it’s a couple who recently shared their wedding vows or spouses who have been on the marriage journey for years, many people...
There was a sense of excitement in the room. Ten couples had signed up for a weekend Marriage Retreat and the first session was about to begin. Preparations had been in the process for months. Putting the schedule and sessions together, deciding on the menu, getting the word out to potential...
Brene Brown’ is a shame researcher who opines: “If you put shame in a Petri dish and douse it with secrecy, silence and judgement, shame grows exponentially.” And it can be debilitating. The main issue with shame is the feeling that there is something wrong with me. I’m a failure is another belief...
