My Background

I work with individuals, couples, and families in the areas of personal growth, relationship issues, mood disorders, problem solving, and trauma resolution. I have specialized training and experience in women’s issues, addictions, action methods, families of alcoholics/addicts, abuse/trauma survivors, grief and loss, gay and lesbian issues, and mixed orientation marriages.  My Masters degree is in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the State of Florida (MH #7778).  I am also a Certified Sexual AddictionTherapist, a Trainer, Educator, and Practitioner of Group Psychotherapy, Psychodrama and Sociometry, and I am trained to conduct Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR sessions) for trauma resolution. For more information on these areas, see the links section of my site.

Mixed-Orientation Marriages:

Early in my studies, I learned of relationships where a married person, who self-identified as gay, lesbian, or bisexual, and their spouse chose to defy the odds and make their mixed-orientation marriage work. I understand the dynamics involved in these relationships and have been actively involved in support groups for such couples.

Men's Sexual Recovery Group:

I facilitate a men's recovery group, centered on the task approach to sexual addiction treatment developed by Dr. Patrick Carnes. Please click on the Sexual Addiction Therapy tab above.
