There are two words that I adore, the first is an Italian word: “Attraversiamo," which means "Let's Cross Over” and the second is “Statera," the Latin word for “balance.”
My niche is working with teenagers with acute and post-traumatic stress disorders, adjustment issues, high achieving kids and families, anxiety related disorders, depression, mood disorders, self-harm, and family difficulties. I also enjoy supporting adolescents/families during the transition between high school and college/career path and during their young professional careers. As an experienced therapist, I have been providing family therapy since 2003 and have been recognized for partnering with community providers, school personnel, pediatric practices, hospital inpatient units and others in order to collaborate on behalf of the child and family so that they can reach their treatment goals with a team behind them. I also provide Telehealth sessions to accommodate the busy lives of my clients and families.
The Lowcountry Mindfulness Center
I recently established The Lowcountry Mindfulness Center, LLC, the home of my private practice, which will also serve as a local center focused on teens/adolescents, young adults and their families located in Johns Island, SC in close proximity to Charleston and other Lowcountry areas. My goal is to expand The Lowcountry Mindfulness Center so that other practitioners have a space where they can provide the much needed services in our community.
I wear a second hat and that is one of a consultant, to places of education (i.e., private schools, colleges and universities), to business and government agencies in finding ways to streamline their operations (i.e., Lean), support their team members (i.e., Therapy) and corporate training (i.e., dealing with issues such as Executive stress and burnout.)
I am currently accepting new clients and provide a free consultation prior to the evaluation in order to make sure I am the right fit for you.
The goal is to support you through your transformation "Cross Over" and prepare you for the challenges of tomorrow. Whether you are an individual, an academic system or a corporation, I can help you "cross over" and find “balance" in this chaotic world.
Please, contact me so we may discuss how I can be of service.
The Lowcountry Mindfulness Center’s mission is to improve the mental health of teens, young adults and their families to advance understanding of their developmental and psychiatric needs, raise the standard of care through the highest quality compassionate, specialized and effective treatments leading to a sense of balance and safety in their lives.
