Marriage & Family Therapist in Florida
I am a board-certified sex therapist treating a wide range of sexual disorders. I have successfully treated couples as well as individuals who suffered from ED, PE, PD, etc. I help clients eliminate the stigma surrounding sexual issues
Treating PTSD can be challenging but when using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy/modality, the success rate is very high and effective. When the memories or the trauma get stuck, they are stored in the brain as unprocessed events. Reliving the trauma is like having a cut that doesn't heal. With EMDR memories are stored properly in the brain. This is like applying medicine on the cut to promote healing.
Relationships take time and a willingness to heal. Both have to be on board and willing to make it work, not just one piece of the couple. I have treated couples on the brink of divorce or separation saying, "I wish I had known about this treatment a long time ago as we wouldn't be here". Together in therapy, we discover the language of each person and how they talk to their partner. Most of the time they have no idea they were speaking a foreign language to each other.
Solution Focused Bried Therapy is future-focused, goal-directed, and focuses on solutions, rather than on the problems. It is a short-term therapy ranging from 9 to12 weeks of treatment. We explore how your life is going to be different and how your preferred future will look like. Solutions are constructed with the help of the therapist instead of focusing on the problem.
Anger management is successfully treated by allowing the client to express the origins of where the anger originated. Sometimes it goes back so far it may not have anything to do with the presenting anger but rather on not knowing how to express it. Is the anger originating from internal or external causes? Sometimes anger is expressed through aggression and steps are needed to modify this destructive behavior. I have successfully treated court-mandated clients that needed tips and strategies.
EMDR is an incredible type of therapy that allows the client to heal/tone down the reactivity in the brain of experiencing trauma. It works at the speed of thought and has been proven to work in a large portion of the population with exceptional results.
