My Philosophy

 Florida Licensed Mental Health Counselor

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Sex Therapist, Relationship Counselor, and Addictions Professional practicing in Vero Beach, Florida. I provide face-to-face therapy as well as distance counseling via Skype and telephone.


In addition to my academic studies in psychology, human development & behavior, and counseling theories and practices, I have received specialized training in Imago Relationship Therapy, Hypnosis & EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioral, Humanistic, and Transpersonal therapies.


As I transition my practice and my life toward retirement, I am limiting my practice. I am now only working with couples who want to co-create conscious relationships, those who want to change self-limiting beliefs, people who desire an increase in abundance and prosperity in their life, and those who are interested in self-actualization.


Self-actualization represents the growth of an individual toward fulfillment of their highest needs; finding meaning and satisfaction in life in particular. Every person possesses a growth potential whose aim is to integrate and grow into the “ideal self” thereby cultivating the emergence of the fully functioning person. Self-actualizers are creative, psychologically robust individuals.


Divine discontent or unresolved traumas are often the catalyst for beginning the actualizing process. If needed, I work with all types of trauma (childhood abuse, accidents, victims of crime, infidelity, etc.) with a process that is quick and effective.


 Actualizing a relationship means co-creating a conscious, mutually healing partnership.


Prosperity and abundance are your birthright and I help clients remove the blocks preventing them from achieving their dreams using psychological and spiritual processes.

 My life purpose includes assisting others to find more abundance and satisfaction in their lives. This journey involves becoming self-actualized (discovering and becoming who you were authentically are born to become). This process includes conscious awareness of your behavior and the underlying beliefs that block you, recognizing and developing your inherent gifts, finding and living your higher purpose. This may be facilitated through addressing the self-limiting beliefs, fears, traumas, relationship issues, and habitual patterns that have developed during your life.
