More About Me

Upon graduating high school in 2002, I joined the United States Marine Corps. I served as a  correctional officer for over 4 years and Deputy Sheriff with the Lake County Sheriff’s department for 12 1/2 years. I’m certified as a D.A.R.E. officer which allows me to teach youth about drug abuse and resistance. I switched career paths to become an educator teaching exceptional student education (ESE)/high risk students at Tavares middle school. Educating our troubled youth has always been a priority, especially to those in need of a role model. I graduated from Grand Canyon university with a Bachelors degree in criminal justice (Summa Cum Laude) and Master of Science in Addiction Counseling (Alpha Chi). I’m pursuing further credentialing within trauma counseling, gaining a post-masters degree.

When human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. My goal is to bring healing to people who have been through a traumatic/stressful experience. I strive to help my clients, including children, adults and families, find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships to make them feel peaceful, complete, whole and safe.

I utilize a variety of techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, person-centered therapy, stress management, increasing self-worth, mind/body connection, 12 step work, assertiveness training, mood management, anxiety reduction, empowerment and work/life balance.

Existing clients can manage their appointments from the APPOINTMENT MANAGEMENT PORTAL.
