Aleta Edwards, PsyD, Psychologist in Tampa
Life can be painful, and people find themselves depressed or anxious because they are too hard on themselves, feel they must be perfect, have a need to please others, or have suffered a loss. Life stress can make these issues feel even worse. If you feel anxious, depressed, or self-critical, I will work with you with compassion and respect to facilitate your healing and personal growth. I have specialized for 20 years in helping people with these issues, and I am author of the ebook, Fear of the Abyss: Healing the Wounds of Shame and Perfectionism.
I specialize in helping people with anxiety, depression, trauma, transitions, self-esteem, and bereavement. I create a safe and caring setting. I also specialize in issues of perfectionism and shame. I am very experienced treating veterans for PTSD. Free sessions for military and families are available through Camaraderie Foundation. Call for information.
I have a respectful, compassionate approach to therapy that has helped many find relief from emotional pain and lead more fulfilling lives. My approach combines insight, mindfulness, and relaxation to help you address the root of your issues, not just the symptoms. I will listen to you and work with you as a team.
