My doctoral dissertation focused on intrafamilial sexual abuse.
I prefer clients who are desirous of improving their lives and are seeking professional assistance in making needed changes in their self-sabotaging beliefs, faulty thinking, destructive behaviors and/or enabling or abusive associations. 29 years as an Army chaplain qualifies me to treat military personnel and their families. I have extensive training and experience in treatment for those who have been sexually abused and who are registered sex offenders.

As a licensed clinical mental health counselor, I have extensive experience working with trauma, self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, co-dependency, and relationship distress in individuals and couples.
Wanting to make beneficial changes, but no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to change unhealthy thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. Know that this isn’t your fault—just your mind processing information in a way that does not benefit you. If you are struggling in a relationship, these stuck patterns can also block connection. I can help you move what has been stuck so you can move toward a future full of possibilities. I specialize in addressing trauma and removing blocks that can keep clients stuck through an approach that can be quite powerful and rapid, without having to re-experience traumatic events and painful emotions.

Attuned care provided for accident, abuse and assault resolution.
These are difficult times. Anxiety can have a life of its own. Providing better help through online Telehealth is a 15 year specialty in my 36 year career. So many "what ifs" are a reality in many lives. What does one do when anxiety, stress and panic hit? Change from what was normal to the "now normal" can bring reactivity and stress. I offer online therapy helping clients understand their lives and the roots of their personal anxiety & stress. I provide a safe place and skills that create “breathing room” to help people break free from the grips of their anxiety, frustration, and personal and relational stress.

You're here for a reason. You have likely been trying your hardest to pull things together, but regardless of the constant effort, life is becoming more and more about 'getting through each day'. It seems like a constant struggle for you, and the hope that this will all just go away is fading. You may not believe it right now, but things can change - I've seen it first-hand.

Sexual Abuse Therapists
Child sexual abuse is the deliberate exposure of a minor child to sexual activity that the child cannot comprehend or consent to. This means a child is forced or talked into sex or sexual activities by another person. This behavior includes acts such as inappropriate touching of a child's breasts or genitalia, someone exposing their genitalia to a child, fondling, oral-genital contact, genital and anal intercourse, as well as exhibitionism, voyeurism, and exposure to pornography.

If you're looking for a therapist that has treated clients who've experienced sexual abuse in Sarasota or for Sarasota sexual abuse counseling, these professionals provide confidential support for individuals in an abusive relationship. They include sexual abuse therapists, sexual abuse psychologists and sexual abuse counselors. Therapists can help with child abuse in Sarasota and sexual violence in Sarasota. An Sarasota therapist can identify the signs and causes of sexual abuse, discuss intervention and refer victims to shelters.
