I have been a psychotherapist for 35+ years, working with individuals, couples and families. Life is a challenge and often presents us with moments that are difficult to handle by ourselves. Seeking counseling is a way of helping us learn how to better understand and cope with those times when we feel stuck. A willingness to reveal our problems, an openness to looking at how we respond to problems and commitment to change are all acts of great courage.

Today's society brings many challenges to children, adolescents and their families. While some face setbacks at home, others might struggle with school issues or have difficulties in social situations casting a shadow over childhood. Although parenting and family life can be the most rewarding experience, they are also complex tasks with ever changing challenges, especially if the family deals with, for example, trauma, anxiety, ADHD, grief, blending families, school/ peer problems.

When you or family members are hurting, you need competent, experienced psychological help. Training and experience for a doctor of psychology is significantly different than that of masters level counselors. While there are good counselors for certain types of clients, you want a doctor's perspective for your assessment and treatment. I bring a caring heart and years of experience in private practice to our sessions. Furthermore, my training includes graduate level education focusing upon the integration of psychology and faith. Get the expertise and experience you need in a consultant. Contact me to get your healing started.

As a marriage and family therapist, I work holistically to address mental health concerns of individuals, couples, and families.
There is a quote by J.R.R. Tolkien, "not all those who wander are lost". I think this is a solid descriptor of my life's journey. To the outside observer, I've looked similar to a vagabond as I've "wasted my potential" walking barefoot through Orlando serving the homeless, living in Brazil while working with at-risk children abandoned to the streets, and even more recently as I've dove into therapy with men and women struggling with sexual addiction and the fallout of effects upon their loved ones. I've wrestled with my own struggles and mental health diagnosis of OCD and now have the privilege of serving others.
