I am a licensed counselor in Lakeland, Florida and my life's passion is helping people. I am honored to represent the counseling profession as a therapist, professor, and author. One of my specialties is working with children, adolescents, and adults diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disabilities. I also help families of all kinds overcome many types of challenges. I use many innovative types of therapy such as play, solution-focused, and cognitive therapies and I conduct groups with children and adolescents to help them understand themselves and learn to use their amazing gifts and find their place in the world. .
