I offer individual counseling for:

Sometimes we feel life gives us more than we can handle.  Yet, our greatest struggles can be a catalyst to develop our greatest strengths and abilities.  While I was in college I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and was given a thirty percent chance to live.  This was devastating news to receive as a college kid.   I experienced chemotherapy and eventually a Bone Marrow Transplant.  My brother was my donor. Faith, family and friends are what helped me suffer well and survive.  This experience gave me deeper understanding into human suffering as well as human dignity.  Many people surrounded me during this time.  Some of these people knew me and others were compassionate people working at the hospital.  Whatever it is you are going through, there many different caring people willing to help.  You don't have to go it alone.  There is great strength available to you in the midst of adversity.
I focus on Cognitive Behavior Therapy in my practice.  It is an evidenced based therapy that assists people to learn to manage their thoughts and emotions.  Many people enjoy CBT, because it is a goal directed form of counseling.  My goal is transfer the skills of CBT to you, so that you won't always need a therapist.  Feel free to reach out to me so that we can start working together to achieve your goals.

My practice is called Resilience because I believe one of the most important skills in life is getting up after falling down.  People fall down in many ways, yet what makes a person strong is their ability to get up.  CBT has help me develop resilience, and I believe it can be helpful for you too. 
I graduated from The Baptist College of Florida with a major in Theology and minor in Psychology.  I chose Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary for my graduate work, attaining a Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Counseling. 

I am devoted to the practice of Cognitive Behavior Therapy.  I have invested in continuing education at The Beck Institute in Philadelphia under the founding family of CBT.   I have taken classes at the Beck Institute on Depression, Anxiety, Schizophrenia and PTSD. 

Cognitive Behavior Therapy is as an evidenced based modality where the patient and therapist work collaboratively to achieve the goals of the patient.
