Licensed Mental Health Counselor | MA, LMHC, J.D.
IT IS MY PASSION TO WORK WITH ANYONE WHO DESIRES TO GROW SPIRITUALLY, AND TO RESOLVE ISSUES THAT KEEP US FROM REACHING THE POTENTIAL THAT GOD HAS PLACED US HERE TO ACHIEVE. WE SOMETIMES LOSE TRACK OF THIS POTENTIAL THROUGH TRAUMA, UNRESOLVED PERSONAL ISSUES, AND RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS. I ENJOY HELPING MY CLIENTS WORK THROUGH THESE OBSTACLES TO GROWTH. AS A THERAPIST, AND AN ATTORNEY, I HAVE DEVELOPED EXPERTISE IN MANY AREAS INCLUDING DEPRESSION, ANXIETY, POST TRAUMATIC STRESS, ATTACHMENT ISSUES, ATTENTION DEFICIT, CONFLICT RESOLUTION, AND ALL AREAS OF RELATIONSHIP. AS FOLLOWERS OF JESUS WE ARE CALLED TO “BIND UP THE BROKENHEARTED”. THAT IS WHAT I LOVE TO DO.
I HAVE BEEN DOING TELETHERAPY FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND FIND IT A GREAT WAY TO MAKE COUNSELING MORE ATTAINABLE AND CONVENIENT. MY PRACTICE IS CHRIST CENTERED AND ECLECTIC. I EMPLOY METHODS THAT INCLUDE ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY, COGNITIVE BEHAVIORAL THERAPY, EMOTION FOCUSED THERAPY, DIALECTICAL BEHAVIOR THERAPY, AND MANY OTHER METHODS. I HAVE BEEN PRACTICING FOR OVER 35 YEARS IN MIAMI, FLORIDA WHICH HAS GIVEN ME THE PRIVILEGE OF WORKING WITH A DIVERSE POPULATION OF CLIENTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. I CURRENTLY OFFICE IN BOCA RATON, FL
I HAVE BEEN MARRIED FOR FORTY YEARS, WITH TWO DAUGHTERS.
