Ask Dr. Dae

So, Dr. Dae, would you consider decreased intimacy as a symptom and not a cause of strained relationships?

Great question! A lot of that depends on gender and perception.
Many men express love and affection primarily through physical intimacy, thus would feel resentful, angry or hurt if that intimacy was diminished… for HIM, it would be the cause of the strain on the relationship.
On the other hand, most women need to feel love and affection in order to be physically intimate, thus any resentment, anger or hurt she is feeling would lead to decreased intimacy… for HER, that would become a symptom of the strained relationship.
The good news is, regardless how different we are… no matter where the disconnect stems from… with communication, commitment and compromise there is a way to find happy common ground!
~Dr. Dae

 




Welcome

My practice is unique in a way you may not find in other therapy offices.  I pride myself in running a boutique practice with a select group of clients who are ready to do the work necessary to create the life they have always wanted.

You will not be rushed out at the 50 minute mark, you will not be charged for phone calls, e-mails or texts.  I believe that everything happens for a reason and have a strong sense that there is a reason you have found me.  I am always humbled when someone trusts in me to join them on their journey. I take that investment very seriously and I am diligent about creating returns on that investment that are life changing.

After our initial session, you will walk out with a goal, a sense of movement forward and a plan for personal growth and development.  You will be treated with care, compassion, true positive regard, hope, enthusiasm, humor and research based treatment modalities.  You will not be on the couch for the next several years.  The intuition based cognitive behavioral therapy that I provide is impactful, empowering and usually brief.

Take the first step in making yourself and your well-being a priority in YOUR life.  I can’t wait to meet you!

The Survivors’ Seat: How YOU Can Help Provide a Voice to Those Silenced by Sexual Violence

*TW sexual assault and abuse*

I know that many of you are passionate about the issues of sexual assault and sexual abuse. So is the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay. Each year, they provide prevention services, hundreds of sexual assault forensic examinations and specialized trauma counseling to thousands of survivors.

As you may know, I am a proud and active member of the Board of Directors for the Crisis Center because their mission is reflective of my own. One month from now, we are holding the Cup of Compassion Breakfast to educate the community about the incredible work that is done every single day at the Crisis Center.

There are lots of ways to get involved with The Crisis Center, but today I am asking your help to serve as a supporter of those who have been the silent victims of sexual trauma. I’d like to give these women, men and children a chance to be heard through your generosity.

Every 107 seconds, someone in the US is sexually assaulted. Due to the shame, stigma, embarrassment and blame that surround victims of sexual violence, many never come forward to report the crimes committed against them. According to the US Justice Department, approximately 70% of sexual assaults in the last five years went unreported. SEVENTY PERCENT.

At my table at the Cup of Compassion event, there will be one empty chair. I am reserving that chair as the “Survivors’ Seat” to represent, give a voice to, and honor the millions of nameless, faceless victims that have been forced to remain silent in the wake of violence that has been perpetrated against them.

Please click the link below to provide a tribute gift to the Survivors’ Seat. Truly, any amount will help. If we share this far and wide, a $1 or $5 gift can multiply exponentially. Through your efforts, The Crisis Center can continue to be the first stop for help, hope and healing for those affected by sexual violence.

Thank you for your support!

  • Had a great time at “Mommy’s Time Out”. Dr. Dae was awesome! I have wanted to meet her for a while and she did not disappoint! She educated a room full of moms about sex and marriage. Not always an easy task! Thanks Dr. Dae, Limelight Marketing Consultants, Inc., and The Rack in Brandon for a great evening!

  • Dr Dae and I have been working together for awhile and I have learned a lot about myself through our sessions. Her remarkable combination of empathy, insight, enthusiasm and caring has helped me come up with ways to handle any issues that arise. I am a better man, leader, person and father because of her.  I would, and have, recommended Dr. Dae to many peers, coworkers and family members.
