My belief is that all of us, no matter our walk of life, have a unique and powerful story. Within that story is the person that we are, along with all of our possible selves. Life can come at us from all directions. When we have the tools and the understanding to work with that life in combination with our story, we can reach our greatest self.  I am passionate about supporting people in finding their best self and believe that the relationship between client and counselor can be a therapeutic tool to reach such a goal. Mental health counseling can benefit one’s life by helping to lessen anxiety, boost self-confidence, relieve stress, add coping skills, move beyond problem areas, and find emotional balance.

I have a Ph.D in Humans Services, a M.S. in Psychology, and a M.S. in Mental Health Counseling. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and a certified rape crisis hotline counselor and have worked in both private practice settings and residential treatment centers. I began working as a psychotherapist in Colorado in 1996 and am currently a licensed mental health counselor in private practice for the State of Florida. I also teach a variety of psychology and counseling classes at the undergraduate and graduate level including General Psychology, Lifespan Development, Counseling Techniques, Addictions, Theories of Personality, Couple and Family Counseling, and Abnormal Psychology. I am a member and contributing writer for American Counseling Association and Marriage.com. I am also a member of Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Issues in Counseling, Citizen Therapists, and Equality Florida.
