Biography

After 20 years as a CPA I left the business world to dedicate the balance of my life to providing mental health assistance and support to individuals and families in need.  In 2018 I received a Masters degree from USF in Rehabilitation and Mental Health Counseling with a certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy. During my time at USF I interned with Success 4 Kids & Families working in a community based strengths oriented environment offering a comprehensive array of services to individuals and families struggling with mental health, behavioral and/or substance abuse challenges.  As an Intern I currently practice under a licensed supervisor for Mental Health Counseling and Marriage and Family Therapy.

 

I bring my unique life’s experiences of serving clients, coaching teams of business professionals and personal growth to the field of counseling. As a business leader, husband and father of teens I spent many hours with my own coaches and therapists who helped me understand my struggles and explore my strengths and weaknesses to make myself and those around me better.
