Hi, I would like to start with a personal quote I came up with working in addiction treatment for many years. "Fate is for people who fail to take action. Destiny is for people who refuse to accept their failures as fate." Me Simply put, I would be honored and privileged to be a part of your healing journey. I consider myself to be a therapist who is qualified both because of education and utilization of evidence based treatments; and the experiential learning and continued growth of my own life path. I would love to meet you exactly where you are on your current journey and help empower you to move forward. "Unity consciousness is a state of enlightenment where we pierce the mask of illusion which creates separation and fragmentation. Behind the appearance of separation is one unified field of wholeness. Here the seer and the scenery are one." Deepak Chopra

I was in the United States Marine Corps from 1998-2003 and during this time I learned a great deal about myself and became more culturally diverse. During my third year of service, I was injured at Officers Candidate School and realized that I needed to develop my counseling skills, so I worked with an agency that counseled teens regarding their addiction. I have been in the social services field for the past twenty years and have been licensed for the past 10 years. When I got out of the Marines in 2003, I went home to North Carolina and my father passed away three days later unexpectedly so, I needed a job and I was able to use my previous years working with teens and became a supervisor at Sipes Orchard Home took in unwanted children from parents, Level II and Level IV agencies, and the Department of Children and Families. After being here at this facility for two years I left as they weren't following the Medicaid standards. I left the agency and went to work for The Cognitive Connection as the Prevention Supervisor providing preventive services for teens and was part of the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) providing groups to adults. I worked with Cognitive Connection for three years and left to go to Pensacola, Florida because I had heard they were starting a MSW program. I felt hopeful as I knew getting my master’s in social work would change my life forever. After I finished the MSW program I immediately started working for Lakeview Services in Adult Outpatient Community Mental Health and then worked in the Drug Court program. I stayed here for three years until I got a job with the DoD in Oklahoma because my wife was trying to get a federal job, so I moved to support her and my family. While working with the DoD I was able to get my supervision for licensing, created an anger management program for the DoD, and stayed until my LCSW license was finalized in December of 2013. When I came back to Florida I worked for Volunteers of America for a couple of years until a federal job opened at Veterans Affairs in Pensacola, FL, in August of 2016. I have been licensed in Florida for the past 10 years, recently became licensed in Texas and Oklahoma. I have some clients who are in therapy with me for several weeks to several months depending on their individual needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Are you experiencing stress, worry, racing thoughts, impaired sleep, feeling on edge, heart racing, nightmares, or/and flashbacks? Do you replay moments in your head and feel hopeless? Maybe you’re feeling like you are not quite yourself; like you aren’t living your healthiest, happiest and most well-functioning life. My specialty is helping clients uncover the root of their problems and then empower them with the skills necessary to regain a healthier sense of control in those areas. Let me help you on this journey! Imagine yourself empowered, as we find recurring themes and self-defeating patterns. You will discover ways to overcome sadness, fear and other emotional obstacles. Problems, once confronted, lead to insights and newfound strength, self-acceptance and freedom. My advanced training is in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) which is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from anxiety, trauma and PTSD symptoms. My experience and training help us to quickly identify key issues, unconscious factors and ways to resolve them. My primary focus is on helping individuals find balance and peace after experiencing trauma, navigating through life transitions, unhealthy relationships, or loss and grief. I can work with you to develop healthy coping skills and gain insight. I love to help others feel at peace and whole again. If there is one thing that I would like for you to know is that the most crucial part of therapy is to find a therapist that you trust. My priority is to create a genuine connection with my clients by creating a safe and non-judgmental space for them.

Relationships are important. They can bring us joy, and connection, and opportunities to grow. You talk to friends and loved ones, you spend time with them, and you likely do caring things for them. And, how much time do you spend deepening your relationship with yourself? Do you pay attention to how you talk to yourself, how you spend time with yourself, how you care for your Self? It is my experience both personally and professionally that when we spend time working on our relationship with Self, not only do we become happier, and more peaceful internally- our external relationships with others improve as well.

After graduating with my Masters degree in Mental Health Counseling from Nova Southeastern University, I was provided the opportunity to gain my experience at Nicklaus Childrens Hospital. I worked with a variety of age groups that exposed me to facilitate individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy and interventions. I also have over a decade of experience working in the fitness and wellness industry, which has influenced my therapy style, as I believe a healthy body leads to a healthy mind; therefore, activity and movement are highly encouraged and praised when working with me. I became a therapist mostly due to my interest in individuals and the recognition that everyone has their own story to tell. I believe each person is unique in their own way and we all have experiences that shape us into who we are today. I am an outgoing and nonjudgmental individual, which allowed me to make many positive relationships with a variety of different people growing up.

You deserve to feel well and live your most authentic life. I provide tools to help you embrace a deeper understanding of yourself, strengthen your coping mechanisms, improve your mood, and thrive with increased daily functioning, self-efficacy, self-esteem, self-awareness, and authentic self-expression. When life feels overwhelming, our minds can convince us that we are alone in our daily challenges and during our most difficult times. We get used to handling it on our own. I believe there is a better way. Working with a psychotherapist who can deeply connect with where you are on your healing journey can be transformative. Transformation might look like addressing symptoms, resolving a problem, or seeking something more. By guiding you to deeper insights and clearer understandings, together, we are better able to confront the barriers that may be holding you back from the life you want to live.
