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.

People often turn to a professional counselor when they are having trouble with relationships--either with self or others. Sometimes we feel stuck in life situations and are unable to move forward. We all need balance in life and sometimes it helps to have some guidance reaching that goal--whether in our personal or professional arena. We can work together to find the most beneficial approach for you to get your life on track.

Are you or a loved one struggling with stress, anxiety or depression? Are your coping skills helping or hurting you? In life, we all experience times when we struggle whether it be with guilt, shame, grief/loss, relationship issues or adjustment to change. With a little help, we can move through this and get to a brighter life. In the 20 years I have been a therapist I have helped many people with these issues. One of my favorite quotes is “If you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got. If you want something different, do something different.” Counseling is the process that can help with this.

What keeps us in bondage can vary tremendously from one person to another. We know that our past plays a huge part in what keeps us in bondage to pain, thoughts that destroy us rather than move us forward, strife within ourselves and our relationships. We are here to take you through the process of healing the pain, retraining your mind, mending your relationships, and ultimately breaking the chains that keep you from being what God has created you to be.

Often, we seek support simply because we are souls in need of novel ways to protect ourselves in a world that does not always honor the sensitive, unique, or creative. I skillfully and empathically align with such souls. I have decades of experience and proven approaches to empower individuals challenged with anxiety, depression, relationship struggles or existential fatigue resulting from being a highly sensitive or creative person who has lacked the necessary collaboration to gain greater self-understanding, expression, and actualization. Together, we can create a life that works for you! Not just surviving, but thriving!

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.
