Compassionate Counseling in East Fort Lauderdale

Welcome to Tree of Life Counseling--a practice that sprouted from the desire to offer you hope and help in your journey toward something better.

Tree of Life Counseling serves high-functioning individuals and couples who recognize that something is wrong, but aren't quite sure how to fix it. The practice isn't geared toward severe mental health disorders, but will graciously provide referrals to local providers who can help.

Since opening the practice in 2015, I've had the privilege of helping individuals learn to successfully manage depression and anxiety, to heal from trauma, to create more loving and healthy relationships, to work through grief and loss, and to overcome addiction. I've worked with many couples to repair damaged relationships and rebuild with love and passion, and with others to navigate the process of divorce in an amicable manner with minimal conflict. My work with families has helped them improve communication, reduce conflict, and encourage empathy and love.

Specialty Areas

I believe that the best therapy results come from being an expert in a few areas rather than a generalist at the risk of painting with too broad a brush.

By limiting my practice to a few specialties, I'm able to stay current on the latest research and practices, and enhance my expertise by limiting my work to these populations.


Does worry hold you back from doing the things you want to do?
Do you wish you could learn to live a life without constant worrying, fear, and panic?
