Being in psychotherapy doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you. It means that a licensed therapist is helping you take major steps forward to living a more fulfilling life. This is perhaps one of the most important decisions you will ever make. Think of it this way: if you want to learn how to play the guitar, you go to someone who teaches guitar lessons. If you want to know how to think in a way that makes you a better life manager and problem solver, then you go to someone who gives thinking lessons. I provide thinking lessons.

Most people don’t realize that the struggles that make their life difficult are often treatable. There are real solutions to these problems. I will help you find them. That is my commitment to you. Untreated, these struggles can cause stress, irritation, mental health problems, problems with relationships, and even poor physical health.

Therapy is not scary, cumbersome or a waste of time, and through over 15 years of practice, I have focused on four main areas:

One: GLBT and Sexuality, where I help manage the health and well-being of the unique and stressful challenges of being GLBT in today’s world. I am also a nationally recognized expert in providing evaluations for persons seeking gender transition. Even more so, I am specifically devoted to helping trans people live their most successful life possible post transition. If you are gay, lesbian, trans, or any combination of the above, I get you, and I’m here to help you achieve greatness.

Two: Psychotherapy. In this part of my practice, I help those struggling with mental health conditions such as depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or substance abuse issues.

Three: Post traumatic stress/dissociative disorders. I have the unique advantage of being a therapist who is also a combat veteran and has been to the Middle East. I have also dedicated a large portion of my education and practice to understanding and treating people with dissociative disorders.

Four: Life coaching. As a result of my extensive education, time in practice, and life experience, I have developed an intense, self-directed life coaching program called Mental Health Boot Camp™. This program is designed for people who are ready to invest in their own mental health and well-being.

Even if you do not live in the Central Florida area, we can still do business together! I meet with clients from all over the country by video conference, or what I like to call, "Thera-Skype". Contact my office and find out more!
