As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor since 2001, I have had the privilege of working with people with such issues as anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, panic, OCD, phobias, depression, domestic violence, sexual abuse, rape, eating disorders, self-injury, chronic medical issues, personality disorders, Asperger’s, ADHD, parents of specially-abled children, pre-marital and couples counseling, and substance abuse. I work with children age five and older, adolescents, college students and older adults through age 65. While in graduate school for Counseling at the University of Central Florida, I worked in the Wellness Center on campus. I became interested in the concept of “Wellness,” and it influences my counseling approach today. I am eclectic, focusing on the specific needs of each individual. I have much training in Cognitive Behavioral Approaches (CBT), which I find extremely effective with anxiety, depression and trauma. I am also the parent of an Autistic child, and understand the special issues parents and caregivers face with special needs children. I have recently launched The Bravo Counseling Group, LLC, and can be reached at 407-222-6239.
