Hello! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Florida with 16 years experience helping clients heal and make changes in their lives for the better. I am a Christian with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the Methodist church and the Disciples of Christ church as I was previously married to a Disciples of Christ minister. I lean more liberal in my Christian beliefs. I have experience with all kinds of clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, grief/loss, career challenges, abuse and trauma. My training in family systems helps me understand your concerns from not only an individual perspective but in the context of your faith, your family, your community and the wider world. My approach combines Christian counseling, client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, mindfulness, brief therapy and narrative modalities as needed for each client's best outcome. I respect and enjoy learning from all cultures. I honor your unique story and feel privileged to share your faith journey to hope, optimism and empowerment for your life.
Making a choice to seek therapy is a brave choice! It can be scary to communicate one's deepest thoughts and feelings to a stranger. I offer a calm, safe, nonjudgemental space to carefully explore your situation. I see you as my brother or sister in Christ. I see myself as a catalyst for your self-actualization following your Christian faith. As we examine the pain that brings you to therapy and work through the challenges you are facing, my prayer for you is that you can move to a more peaceful, contented and beautiful life.
I look forward to meeting you!
