When it comes to depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction and relationship problems, trying to make healthy and positive changes on your own is often overwhelming and self-defeating. A competent counselor inspires change toward positive mental health, successful relationships, and creating a productive life.
Since 1987, I’ve been successfully working with people who’ve struggled with depression, anxiety, trauma, addictions and relationship problems. I have a Master’s degree in counseling from the University of South Florida (1992), hold the following professional credentials:
- Licensed Mental Health Counselor
- Board Certified Master Addiction Counselor
- Board Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist
- Certified Master Relationship Coach
I also authored Marry YourSelf First! Saying “I Do” to a Life of Passion, Power, Purpose and Prosperity to help people have a reference guide to creating a healthier life, happier work and more harmonious relationships.
My approach with counseling clients is individualized, personable, confidential and solution-oriented. I’ve been well trained in numerous therapeutic approaches, including cognitive restructuring, behavioral therapy, couples counseling and clinical hypnosis.
I blend together the best approach, or combination thereof, depending on the client’s unique personality and the presenting issue. I develop an individualized treatment plan to help clients better cope with the presenting problems, as well as developing the skill-sets for long term and permanent recovery.
I offer creative solutions that work.
My Mission Statement: “Whether at home or work, I help people uncover the roots of their struggles, discover new ways of dealing with life’s challenges, and get and stay on the road of recovery so they can live happy, healthy and productive lives.”
