Some photos may not reflect appropriate social distancing. Always observe social solidarity with social distancing.
If you are dealing with anxiety, PTSD, depression, substances, relationship or career, we will work collaboratively to empower you to find direction, create a path, and use the skills necessary to navigate to where you want to be – with compassion, and at a pace that fits you.
Whether you are thinking about changing a particular area of your behavior, mood, communication, relationship, or career, as your professional counselor I value the opportunity to utilize my experience to assist you in making the changes you want to see in your life.
Whether at my office, or through secure teletherapy on-line counseling, my rates are reasonable, with a location convenient to Pinellas, Tampa and Sarasota.
Secure, convenient tele-health sessions are available from the comfort of your home or any place, anywhere in Florida.

Collaboration Avoids Overwhelm
Counseling is a collaborative effort. It allows you to view a problem without feeling overwhelmed because you have support to help you recognize and reinforce existing strengths, and move through difficulties.
You learn to cultivate new skills that empower you to change old, unwanted patterns of thought and behavior which no longer serve you.
My psychotherapy approach is caring and holistic. Deep listening includes Heart, Mind, Body & Spirit; honoring logic, emotion, and neuro-physiology (mind-body) with the goal of improving and optimizing your whole being.
You can rely on my more than two decades of professional experience in dealing with anxiety, depression, PTSD or trauma, career or relationship.
I bring advanced training and the latest research in emotional wellness, mindfulness, healing strategies, neuro-biology, holistic well-being, and Gottman relationship methods to address your issues.
Leading-edge, evidenced-based healing strategies help you move beyond micro or macro trauma, and unwelcome habitual thought patterns and behavior.
Up to date methods such as EMDR, ART (watch this video), IFS, EFT, Mindfulness, CBT, and more are utilized to help you heal, restore, enrich, enliven and grow.
The foundation of my practice is caring, personalized, professional counseling and therapy services for all stages of your life, not just when you are in crisis. A counselor is there when you need them.
