About this Service

Hello: I was born and raised in Florida, and I am a licensed clinical psychologist. I have provided mental health assessment, treatment, and consultation services as a clinical psychologist for 22 years so far. Prior to that, I practiced with a Master’s degree for 10 years. So, I have enjoyed working with people to help them improve their mental health and overall functioning for more than 30 years. As far as my education, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Florida, a Master’s degree in Community Counseling from Georgia State Univeristy, a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology and a Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the Florida Institue of Technology. Life can be hard, very hard sometimes. It is fortunate if you have someone who is a well-trained professional available to help navigate, make sense of, and overcome those seemingly overwhelming situations life throws at us. Gaining a sense of mastery and peace of mind are two common goals we all share, and psychotherapy is an effective way to achieve them. Those more than 30 years of professional training and experience are in addition to the inherent enhancement of insight which comes through experiencing 58 years of life on this planet. Engaging in psychotherapy is all about change….change for the better. Addressing client goals for change is a primary aspect of each patient’s treatment plan. An ideal outcome from receiving mental health services is to experience your life in a new way via a fresh perspective armed with previously unknown insights and knowledge about yourself and your life now made available to you. This new and deeper understanding of our internal selves, our close relationships, as well as others in general, can be achieved through the psychotherapy healing process. You would not be here if you weren’t seeking healing and change in your life for the better. I look forward to working with you to help significantly improve your overall mental health, mood, motivation, relationships, self-esteem, daily functioning, and sense of well-being.
