I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and Certified Addiction Professional (CAP), in the state of Florida. I have over a decade of providing adults with effective therapy for co occurring mental heath and substance use disorder, with a host of evidence-based treatment modalities. I have worked in residential and outpatient treatment settings, and most recently as a Director of a Mental Health Medication program for clients with severe and persistent mental health disorder including Schizophrenia, Major Depressive Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder. I have vast experience in helping others recover from substance use disorder and to resolve or improve upon legal issues stemming from substance abuse and associated criminal behaviors through. I am highly experienced in working with the Corrections and Judicial systems through practice in programs such as Drug Court and other Diversion programs. PTSD is another area of expertise that I developed through social work practice and research involving veterans and others who have been trauma exposed. I am trained in Trauma Management Therapy, Mental Health First Aid Response, Suicide Prevention. Through implementation of an eclectic approach to client-centered, individualized care, I have a proven track record of helping others recover.
From an ethical approach to clinical service, when clients raise the topic of spirituality and religiosity in therapeutic settings, this opens the door for interjecting probably the single most effective source of strength that any of us can rely upon, which is the hope, faith and peace that comes from belief in God and His will for all of mankind. I have helped many clients to learn to rely on scripture, and belief that God's will for us is love. It has been said that I life lived on self-will is hardly worthwhile. Yet, with spiritual belief, hope springs eternal. I welcome those who wish to grow spiritually along the path to recovery.
