Is infidelity threatening to rip apart your relationship? Are you or your partner using pornography in secret? Have you or your partner failed to get rid of unwanted sexual behaviors? Pornography use, extra-marital affairs, and sexual addictions typically trigger intimacy issues which, if untreated, lead to separation and divorce. Life may feel completely out-of-control as you or your partner struggle with the consequences of these problems. At Eagles Wings Counseling Center, I am a part of a team that specializes in working with both individuals and couples who are facing the intense feelings surrounding these betrayals.

Approval seeking, bad relationships and addictions keep us from living out our true potential, but they're not the real problem. Many practitioners provide a long list of conditions, diagnoses and symptoms they treat. Frankly, I'm not all that interested in symptoms: I want to help you figure out why you've been using the same strategies for years and expecting different results. If you want to stop waking up every morning and hoping that somehow - today - your life is somehow going to be different, you've got to DO something different.

My approach to counseling is framed around two perspectives. The first is that each individual knows themselves best. Because of that belief I am available to help individuals achieve the change they seek based on an understanding that each person may just need some guidance to access the knowledge they already have inside of them. The second perspective involves not dwelling on the origins of problems. Knowing the roots of a problem doesn't mean that the effects of a problem suddenly disappear. I often rely on a solutions focused approach rather than a problem centric focus with helping individuals work toward change.

Many of us struggle with conflicting thoughts and emotions. Facing challenging decisions, navigating intimate relationships and family, and carrying too many responsibilities can be overwhelming and often too difficult to work though alone. Unresolved issues and traumas can lead to feeling "stuck" rather than taking steps towards finding solutions and healing. Many people resort to "quick fixes" when feeling lonely, anxious, or depressed, instead of addressing the root cause of the pain and discomfort. My experiences and training allow me to help you find tools within yourself to discover new perspectives and cultivate new skills.

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.

How to find a specialist?

You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Sarasota, or Child Psychologists in Sarasota. You can also use the filters to see only female psychologists, or gay-allied therapists

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Sarasota psychologists specializing in anger management, couples counselling, or EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way'. A couples counselor or a family counselor may use different techniques depending on the one that works best for you. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
