My Expert Service

I have worked as a psychotherapist for the past twenty six years. The core of my practice is to help the client find their true self and understand the basic problems of their depression, anxiety or anger management issues. The climax will be when they learn to "Love" themselves and be at peace.

I have worked with abused children that have been awarded to the State and worked counseling the criminally insane and forensic clients. I have been teaching college students for the past five years. I have also been certified by the State of Florida as a provider to counsel Children of Divorcing parents. The parents of these divorcing parents are also required to complete a four hour course. The City of Miami has granted me permission as a provider to conduct Premarital counseling. I also provide Biblical counseling to those in need.
