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. Counseling can benefit one’s life by helping to lessen anxiety, boost self-confidence, relieve stress, and find emotional balance.

I have a PhD in Humans Services, a M.S. in Psychology, and a M.S. in Mental Health Counseling. I am, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional, 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 teach a variety of psychology, counseling, and philosophy classes at the undergraduate and graduate level including General Psychology, Lifespan Development, Counseling Techniques, Addictions, Cyber Counseling, Theories of Personality, Counseling Couples and Families, and Abnormal Psychology. I am a member and weekly blogger for American Counseling Association and a contributor to Marriage.com as a marriage expert. I am also a member of Association for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Issues in Counseling, Citizen Therapists, and Equality Florida.
