My passion is helping individuals grow through adversity and successfully navigate life’s challenges. Life events can make one feel as though the life they had known is shattered and the future seems bleak. My speciality is helping those suffering live with renewed hope and purpose. BA in Psychology and MS in Mental Health Counseling. I am also also a Board Certified Christian Counselor (AACC). My additional certifications include Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning for Faith Based Practices and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART).My areas of specialty are grief and loss, trauma, post traumatic stress disorder, addiction, depression and anxiety. I use multiple therapeutic modalities, not limited to but including solution focused brief therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, crisis intervention, and equine assisted psychotherapy.In addition to traditional office sessions I offer Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) at a 20 acre facility in North Fort Myers. EAP is a modality that is currently being utilized by the military to treat Veterans with post traumatic stress disorder and is appropriate for mental health and behavioral issues.
