Let’s get to know each other… how about I start? My name is Camille and I am a native Minnesotan living in Tampa with my husband and our two dogs. Our family migrated south for the warm weather and hopes to grow closer as a family. “Grow where you’re planted” has been my mantra living in Tampa and exploring all of the special neighborhoods we get to call our home. There is nothing better to me than exploring with family all of the new places to eat, drink coffee, enjoy runs, or practice yoga. I hope for the opportunity to get to know you as well.
Why I became a Counselor?
Believe it or not, I grew up dreaming to become an architect mainly because I loved the thought of creating something unique and safe for families to grow in. I have been able to fulfill my dream, but down other avenues and up other streams. I watched my parents pour into others throughout their lives in different ways. I grew up dreaming and hoping that one day I can make a career out of empowering people. As a clinician, I am able to live out my dream of helping individuals identify their own strengths and power within to transform through their anxiety, grief, adjustment, or feelings of stuck.
Education, Experience, and Approach
Float on Counseling, LLC – Therapist
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker certified in working with those who have a cancer diagnosis. I earned my Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work in 2015 from the University of South Florida. I hold a license in the state of Florida. My experience as a clinician has been working alongside adults and their families facing a life altering diagnosis, specifically focusing on anticipatory grief, complicated grief, and bereavement. My role as a clinician is to help address emotional, mental, or behavioral issues and work together towards mutually-identified goals. The gift of listening is both validating and empowering, and it is my hope to provide this to you.
Can you recall a time when someone said the wrong thing to you when you were feeling down? There are many ways to comfort and support someone experiencing change, facing sadness, or grieving a loss, and many people don’t know what to do or what to say. This is hard for someone who is grieving as they often want to talk about their loss. My approach for therapy is to uncover obstacles preventing someone to feel the freedom of grieving properly. Together it is possible to experience the beauty in making meaning of loss.
