My Approach to Helping

Therapy is both an Art and a Science. The most important part of therapy is to establish and maintain a positive relationship between the therapist and the client. The therapist also needs to keep in mind how the environment as well as the client’s medical and physical issues affect their thoughts and behavior. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Certified Addiction Professional with a practice in Sarasota, and New Port Richey, Florida. My experience involves substance abuse, depression, mood disorders, co-occurring disorders, anxiety disorders as well as psychotic disorders. I also assist in guiding people to reduce stress and live a more fulfilling way of life.
