My Approach to Helping

Are you feeling stress, overwhelm, or stuck? If so, I am here to help. I am a Christian Counselor and Mental Health Counselor and Supervisor who has been in the counseling field since 2000. I have a diverse background in counseling adults, teens, couples, and families. My work experience includes working in public schools, colleges and universities, and in private practice since 2005. I have a Bachelor Degree in Business and a Master and Specialist Degree in Counseling and Human Systems from Florida State University and a doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from Argosy University. I am a National Board Certified Counselor, Board Certified TeleMental Health Provider, and a AASECT therapist. I am a Licensed in Therapist in Florida, Wisconsin, and New Jersey, and a Florida Certificate in Guidance and School Counseling.

I believe that counseling is helping others carry their crosses in life. My counseling style is cognitive-behavioral because it is an effective way of developing good coping skills for many social and personal issues such as stress, depression, anxiety, anger management, addiction, relationship difficulties, and many other mental health problems. We will also utilize solution focused techniques to assist you in finding your solutions. I specialize in dealing with clients who have anxiety, depression, anger management, relationship, self-esteem, abuse, decision-making, loneliness, and or job and career issues in Lee and Collier County. I love empowering people to face their life's challenges, and I provide an empathetic atmosphere for my clients to realize they are not alone in their struggles, and that they have interpersonal strength to change themselves.

I am a member of American Counseling Association and the President of Gulf Coast Mental Health Association.
