I am a Licensed Psychotherapist in the State of Florida since 1994, as well as a Certified Life Coach. I absolutely love what I do, and I put my all into it every day! I treat my clients the way I would want to be treated, and I take their success very seriously. I offer each client the red carpet treatment. Once I take someone on as a client, they will have my direct line and have access to me 24/7 for questions, scheduling, and additional issues, to be discussed during the initial session. Although I do not provide 24/7 on-call emergency services, I do respond to my clients as quickly as possible for all other issues, which are outlined during the first visit. Calls and texts are taken by me personally, not a secretary or answering service, which most clients find very comforting. I offer in-office sessions during normal business hours, including Saturdays and Sundays. I also offer online & telephone sessions after hours, sometimes well into the night or early morning, depending on need and availability, 7-days a week. In addition, I offer home visits for those who qualify, and I have other locations, besides my main office, as well where I see clients for their convenience. As I said, I take each client’s success very seriously, and I am with them every step of the way.
I mostly enjoy watching my client’s improve their lives, their relationships, their family life, their work life, and so much more. I enjoy being on the journey with them, sharing in their successes, and helping when there are setbacks. My goals are their goals, and I truly want them to become the person they always knew they could be, but just didn’t know how to get there.
Alana is very accommodating with our tight schedule needs. She makes herself available without seeming bothered. She is so insightful and has helped us give our marriage new life. I am very happy we decided to work with her!
I am currently still working with Alana and I have to say, she is such a caring and understanding person. Being out of my insurance network she worked with me to get a payment I can afford. She also LISTENS to you, doesn’t rush you, doesn’t interrupt you, doesn’t push you....she’s amazing. I would recommend her over and over.
Clients can call or text 24/7. If I’m not available, I will respond as quickly as possible. I offer a free telephone consultation. If they feel comfortable with me on the phone, we then schedule their first appointment.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a Masters Degree in Social Work from Barry University, from which I graduated in 1990.
