Welcome to my web site and thank you for visiting. If you are in need of counseling for yourself or someone you know, please allow me to introduce myself and provide my credentials for you.

I have an earned doctorate in Counseling and have been in practice for more than 25 years. I am licensed in the State of Florida as a clinical social worker. I am a state qualified clinical supervisor for clinical social work, mental health counselors and marriage & family therapist interns.

I am currently a full-time faculty member at Palm Beach Atlantic University where I am a professor in the Graduate Counselor Education Program.  I am also the Clinical Director at Community Christian Counseling Center where I see clients in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I am the associate editor and co-author of “Mental Health and Mental Disorders: An Encyclopedia of Conditions, Treatments, and Well-Being” a three volume encyclopedia.

I have approximately twenty thousand hours of clinical, supervisory, and training experience and I particularly enjoy working with couples experiencing difficulties in their marriages.  I am also very effective in helping parents secure positive and meaningful relationships with their children in which the children grow up confident and equipped to successfully navigate life’s challenges and opportunities.


By nature, I tend to see the positives and strengths in people and fully believe that everyone has an innate power to heal and find wholeness. I use emotion focus therapies that powerfully address the importance and meaning of our relationships and can bring profound healing and connectedness to all of our relationships.   

My counseling practice is at Community Christian Counseling Center located in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.  If you would like to schedule an appointment please contact me at directly at 561-909-8707 or email me and I will contact you as soon as possible.


Thanks again for visiting my web site.
