I have been in private practice for 15 years treating individuals, couples, families and group counseling. My specialties are grief, including Pet Loss. Our pets are part of our family and we often suffer the same pain as the loss of a loved one. Other specialties are addiction including sexually compulsivity and partners, anxiety, depression, school bullying, workplace issues and PTSD/Trauma.
I am one of the few Certified Sexual Addicion Therapist in the Tampa area that accepts EAP and Health Insurance in full. I also reduce rates on a sliding scale. I assign homework, recommend books and workbooks coupled with 12 step meetings.
I dedicate a song by Lee Ann Womack to my potential and present clients, "....And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance, I hope you will dance." With compassion, support and in a non-judgmental environment we will co-create your vision.

I provide a 15 -20 minute consultation. As a professional I explore the reason for the call and explain a brief treatment plan and techniques I use. If the potential client(s) are receptive I send Intake information including Telehealth form to complete and sign. Then we set up an appointment.
