Tampa Psychology is the oldest psychology practice in the Tampa/Wesley Chapel area.
When we opened our doors in 2006 we recognized that there was a critical need for mental health services in the Wesley Chapel and New Tampa areas. Our approach is different. Although we do not accept health insurance, our fees are among the lowest in the Tampa area. We respect your privacy and refuse to sacrifice quality in order to meet the demands of managed care/insurance companies.
We believe the sensitive nature of mental health services should remain confidential and therefore we are not providers for any insurance plan. Click here to learn more about why.
My approach to individual therapy, is just that…individualized. I don’t impose one approach, but rather pull from various models of psychology that fit your needs. I have extensive training in a variety of models, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and more.
I have extensive experience and training in using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or ACT. ACT teaches a number of core skills that don’t aim to fix problems, but rather change how we cope and deal with everyday life. This helps build long-term skills that last, instead of just reducing one symptom or present problem. ACT teaches us how to live in the present, accept our emotions, and recognize how thoughts impact us. We identify our values and the actions required to pursue them. ACT is an evidence-based psychotherapy that is effective for a wide range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, and insomnia.
However, it is my experience as a fellow human, blended with 20+ years as a therapist, and a commitment to understanding your story, your struggle, and helping you to be the best version of you that is more likely to be of benefit then any 3 letter therapeutic approach I could list here.
