Pronouns: He, him, his.
I'm from the midwest, but raised here in Southwest Florida. I received my Bachelors
degree from Florida State University in Psychology in 2011, then going back to school
and graduating with my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Stetson
University in 2017.
I use a Psychodynamic approach mixed with evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral
Theory: that means that I often help you take a look at your past and make connections
to how you think, feel, and behave in the present. I see a variety of age groups, but teens,
young adults, and adults tend to mesh best with me. I'm spiritually and culturally friendly.
I am an LGBTQ+ ally with training. I really like to help nourish the inner child in everyone.
I also have experience with career counseling, college counseling, and connecting clients
to community resources.
While I lived in central Florida, I participated in a variety of community outreach projects and advocacy movements. I am a part of the Seminole County Children's Cabinet as well as the Child Abuse Prevention Taskforce. I'm part of the Open Path Collective and commit to meeting clients where they are financially. I fight for client rights while admitted to inpatient units as well as providing information on ways that clients can take charge of their mental health. I am a clinical member of Take This and also volunteer time for community outreach through my local Baker Act Receiving facility.
Trainings and Experience
Most of my training involves trauma work, play and sand tray work, parenting, and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), an offshoot method of cognitive behavioral therapy. I started working as a direct service technician on a psychiatric inpatient unit, eventually working my way up to a clinician role, working on inpatient units, community agencies, and private practice. I enjoy working with other mental health professionals, as well as medical professionals to ensure your utmost care.
