I am a Counselor, Life Management and Relationship Coach as well as a Certified Sexologist in the Southern Florida. I have been counseling individuals and couples for over 25 years. My work is primarily with adults and couples dealing with life, mental health, relationship issues, abuse/trauma, substance abuse, and sexual problems. I saw clients in my office until September of this year. I have been doing counseling via webcam for several years with great success. If you are reluctant to try it, but seeing me in my office is not practical, give it a try. We have all been confronted with issues that have altered our lives. I will openly discuss my feelings and how I use the the same skills I teach my clients. I have worked with clients all over the world. I hope that I can help others understand that they can grow and change as I have. My focus will be reaching more people in order to help them get more out of life and deal with issues more effectively. I have two websites: http://www.alttherapist.com and http://www.attherapist.org. You can also contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a relaunch of my Blog. I have put a great deal of thought into what I want to accomplish with my blogging. I am pretty much a novice when it comes to the whole social media thing. I am on a learning curve. I hope I can help others live a more productive and rewarding life. This is what has always motivated me professionally. That being said, we are most motivated by the things that benefit us. The question becomes: how will this blog benefit me?
People who read my blog will come to know me, my values, that I truly care about helping others, and that I use many of the coping tools I teach my clients. I will get the satisfaction of helping others deal with life in a more positive way. I can and will refer clients to my Blog and might even have new clients find me through this medium. This gives me a wider audience to get my message across. I do want this Blog to be interactive and I welcome and encourage questions. If I answer publicly, the identity of the people asking questions will be protected.
You will find that I am not long winded with my posts and will find most of them a quick read. I think this is the most helpful. I don’t know about others, but, I find it difficult to wade through long posts and tend to avoid them.
I think that pretty much sums it up. Now on to the posts. I will try to post something often.
