Marriage & Family Therapist -
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, PhD marriage and family therapist, certified parenting coordinator and a certified Florida State Family Mediator #34539F. I am also an ordained pastor for over 18 years. My beliefs are relationships are a system of interconnectedness and those relationships can have an effect on other aspects of an individual’s personal life such as; school’ spiritual-growth; personal relationships and family. When individuals find themselves stuck in cycle of “more of the same” within those various types of relationships I work with them to find solutions that would assist them in doing something different.I work with individuals, children, couples and families with a wide variety of challenges clients may find themselves stuck in from a systemic framework. My therapeutic practice revolves around a personal, collaborative therapeutic relationship to help the client reach their goals. I specialize in Narrative, Collaborative, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy therapeutic approach, as well as Christian counseling.I believe my clients are the expert of their own lives and problems do not reside within the individual, but rather in relation to how the person is coping with relational stressors. As Florida State Certified Family Mediator #34539F, I work with couples as a neutral, non-biased, negotiator to help opposing parties mutually resolve their relationship dispute.
