Therapists Specializing in Existential Crisis & Challenges in Florida

Whenever you’re faced with an important decision or life transition, it’s natural for larger questions about meaning and purpose to arise. Although existential challenges can surface at any time, they may be especially common upon entering a new life stage or when self-identity starts to shift, such as when making a career change or deciding to recommit to (or leave) a relationship. When these experiences lead to intense preoccupation with questions of greater meaning, feelings of a loss of control, and worry about the future, it can amount to existential crisis.

Therapy can help both in moments of existential crisis and in general exploration of one's values and existential beliefs. Some therapists even provide existential therapy, a philosophically-rooted approach that focuses on meaning, freedom, connection, and mortality.

I believe that successful treatment is based on a warm, supportive, collaborative, and non-judgmental therapeutic environment, in which the client can comfortably explore issues and experience a good connection with the therapist. Since I am trained in different modalities (including insight oriented/psychodynamic psychotherapy, CBT, ACT, DBT, IPT), I am able to tailor my clinical approach to each individual’s needs and work integratively.

My approach is collaborative and my goal is to help my clients learn new and more effective coping skills, make meaningful life changes, heal from past trauma, establish healthier relationships, and work towards achieving the life that they envision for themselves. Gains made by individuals in psychotherapy are often maintained for many years.

In my personal clinical experience, I have found that psychotherapy facilitates personal growth and healing. Clients gain better self knowledge and self confidence, communicate and assert themselves more effectively, become more aware of their needs and learn to replace old and Ineffective ways of coping by healthier ones. Clients make better choices for themselves and become less stuck and paralyzed. Some will make career changes; others will find more suitable partners, and many learn to live lives that are more meaningful, satisfying, and more consistent with their core values.

Psychotherapy can be either short-term or long–term. Some individuals want to focus on a specific issue or target specific symptoms and may need coaching through that specific issue. Others may want to work through more complex life issues in order to attain a better understanding of themselves or to achieve their
desired goals.

You've been thinking about therapy for a while. The stress and pressure of life weigh on you. You want to feel better, and yet, you may not know how to go about changing anything. Everything seems all tangled up. Your relationship suffers. You are not as passionate about your work, family, and friends. A sense of guilt, sadness, anxiety, depression become surmounting at times.

But therapy seems a little too extreme. You might think to yourself: "I"m not that bad! I can handle this. I need to push through it." "I need to stop being lazy. I have to get back on track." The good news is that therapy is for everyone!

I work with people from all walks of life with all types of issues. In our session together, you will discover the self-defeating thoughts and emotions that create patterns in your life. My inside-out 6 steps will guide you to identify patterns that hold you back. I will guide you to express yourself fully so you can enjoy life again.

Congratulations, you have taken the first step in seeking support and living authentically. Most people are considering psychotherapy for months before they actually start. You are moving from the "thinking about it" stage to the "doing something about it" stage.

For our first session you and I will discuss what is working in your life, what are your strengths, what are the positives, what makes you YOU. We'll also talk about the things you'd like to see improve, change or eliminate. This is based solely on what fits and is right for you!

I strive to ensure that my clients feel safe, secure and know that they are not being judged for what they think or what they feel.

I see my role as being the therapist, the cheerleader and the advocate as needed.

It can get better and IT DOES GET BETTER!

There are moments in life when things feel overwhelming, and you might not even know why. Other times it might be clearer what is causing your distress. Either way, you may be waiting for things to get better, but the longer you wait, the more difficult it gets. The good news is that things can get better; I assure you they can.

If you are here it's because you have already taken the most difficult step; deciding to seek help. Fortunately, asking for help gets easier with practice. The way in which we cope with difficulties is greatly influenced by how we see the world. Asking for help, and obtaining a different perspective is often the first and most significant step toward developing the skills needed to become stronger. The more support you gain, the better equipped you will be to take on bigger challenges and achieve your goals.

It is my priority to create a safe atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change. I look forward to working with you to address your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.
