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.

It is interesting how life can take us in different directions. Some that may be exciting and new, then there are times when we come across a challenge that may be difficult to handle on our own; we are unable to deal with it. Counseling can assist in the process of managing one's feelings, challenges and struggles. You do not need to manage this on your own, talking with someone can help with giving you direction, help you understand why you are feeling this way and how to make things better for yourself and /or others around you

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.
