About

Photo by Daylina Miller, WMNF Health News Florida

I began my persuit understanding the human condition as an Anthropologist. After spending a number of years exploring and working on archeological sites, I returned to school and received a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Webster University. For the past 8 years, I have worked as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with the state of Florida.

I have extensive experience helping those with addictions, depression, anxiety, ADD, anger, mood issues and the unique challenges of non-traditional relationships or lifestyles. I strive to bring a distinctive blend of understanding psychology from a historical perspective which allows for some very insightful and creative approaches in my work.

My goal is to help you reach your goals and have fun! I work with with both adults and youth populations and am a particularly good fit for adolescent boys who are struggling at school, home or social situations.

I am also  passionate about youth development in Pinellas County. I am currently the president of Vargar Company, an organization dedicated to the education and betterment of all people through full-contact padded weapon combat simulation and games. I also serve as the vice-president of the Pinellas County 4-H Association, providing support for all 4-H clubs in Pinellas County.
