About Me

I am licensed credentialed for the State of Florida as a Mental Health Counselor with over 15 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I am an Ordained Minister with the State of Florida.
I will take into consideration your religious and spiritual beliefs and faith community which may be sources of strength and support that may be accessed in the course of psychotherapy to assist you. Keeping the importance in mind that will not only adhere to the fundamental values and beliefs of the Bible, but also i will follow the guidelines and ethical rules of the law, to achieve your treatment goals.I will maintain respect for your commitments (values, beliefs and worldviews), I will not impose my own spiritual values, beliefs and world views on you and will filter recovery by making treatment decision with each individual in ways that respect and take into meaningful consideration of your cultural religious/spiritual and personal ideals. It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
