About

My clients describe me as loving and non-judgmental, as having insight that illuminates the hidden corners of one’s heart where pain, difficult emotions and distorted thinking moved in and got stuck, often, in the beginning, to keep them safe.

I have a Master’s Degree in Mental Health Counseling. I am licensed as a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in the State of Florida. I also hold a Juris Doctorate of Law and am licensed to practice law in the State of Texas.

In my practice I see adult and adolescent clients individually or together. I also work part-time at a psychiatric facility that serves adults and adolescents with serious mental illnesses including, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorders, schizophrenia, substance use and personality disorders. I have special training and experience for helping those that have been sidelined by traumatic experiences. I employ evidenced-based therapeutic interventions and have training and experience with family therapy, couples therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and EMDR. I treat anxiety, depression, relationship problems and more serious mental illnesses. I can also help address relationship patterns developed by traits of conditions identified as personality disorders. As a former pastor, when a client expresses an interest in addressing their spiritual concerns and the impact these important matters have on their mental health, I can help.

I am also the President and C.E.O. of Experience Matters, Inc., a Florida not-for-profit corporation dedicated to the education of families in crisis because of mental illness and substance use.

Why I Became a Professional Christian Therapist

Many years ago, after serving as a youth pastor, I became a lawyer. A few years ago I began searching for more meaningful work. For three years I ran operations at a Sea Turtle Rescue Center in Juno Beach. In time, I acknowledged a compelling interest to help people that are looking to get back into the game of life after being benched by the difficulties and failures that happen along the way. We are made to serve. So, I became a psychotherapist.

Therapy can be intimidating if this is your first time seeking help for mental or emotional health concerns. You may have questions that in the past have hindered you from reaching out. Some only reach out for help in desperate times - as a last resort. Making this call may feel like climbing Mount Everest. You are not alone.

I will meet you there – in that lonely, maybe hopeless place. Together we can sort out the barriers that have kept you from moving forward and develop a plan for moving them one at a time.

I rely on evidenced-based and scientifically proven therapeutic interventions that can help you get unstuck and better. The answers to your questions about what is holding you back are within you. Together we will find them.
