Let's get to know each other!

Through my years of practice, I’ve been passionate in working with thousands of clients in promoting good mental health by helping them to unravel their cycles of negative thoughts, negative emotions, and negative behaviors that interchangeably obstruct them from being who, and getting to, where they want to be in life.

I strive to assist my clients in achieving their optimal mental health by utilizing Cognitive Behavioral Therapy combined with humanistic psychology to promote balance in all areas of their lives from a holistic perspective.

As a clinician, I have a unique set of clinical skills and expertise with an emphasis on utilizing holistic psychology in conjunction with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy when counseling both adolescents and adults. I’m most passionate about treating anxiety in my clients because I suffered from anxiety as a teen and a young adult. I was completely blindsided by this crippling mental health disorder that rocked me at my core. My anxiety led to insomnia, social anxiety, and a heightened sense of self-awareness that wreaked havoc on every facet of my personal life. I was put on medication that made me feel like a zombie, so I discontinued taking it almost immediately. I reached out to a psychotherapist, and it was the best decision I ever made. Through psycho-education, cognitive behavioral therapy, some serious personal work, along with significant lifestyle changes, I took back control of my life. So much so that I decided to dedicate the rest of my life to helping others who struggle with anxiety and other mental health issues.

I’m living proof that you can overcome these awful disorders. I pledge as the founder of this counseling center that I, along with the fantastic counselors of this practice, are all constantly striving for excellence and are always researching cutting-edge neuroscience and therapy modalities to better help you overcome whatever it is that you’re struggling with. We hold ourselves to the highest standards because we understand the importance of mental health.

I’m no longer accepting new clients, but Bjorn Nagle and Ramon Aleman are excellent therapists that I recommend in my place. 

A bit more about me…

I graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s in Psychology. During my undergraduate studies at FSU, I interned for the front-running pioneer of anxiety research, Dr. Jesse Cougle, at his lab on anxiety disorders. I also got my first taste of clinical application as one of the youngest crisis counselors in the nation at 2-1-1 Big Bend, a crisis counseling hotline and community referral service. After graduation, I continued my education at the University of South Florida, earning a Master’s Degree in Mental Health and Rehabilitation Counseling. I’m currently licensed as a Mental Health Counselor in the state of Florida, where I’ve presented at regional and national conferences on the topics of performance-based anxiety, holistic anxiety treatment, mindfulness-based anxiety treatment, and workplace-related stress and burnout. I’m a current professional member of the  Anxiety Disorders Association of America and an active volunteer Guardian ad Litem (GAL) with the 6th Judicial Circuit here in Pinellas County, where I advocate for the best interests of Florida’s abused, abandoned, and neglected children.

Outside of academia, I was a personal trainer and general manager of a gym throughout graduate school. I thoroughly enjoyed helping people achieve optimal physical conditioning because I saw the direct link it had to their mental health. I am a huge advocate for the mind-body connection, especially in a society where we’ve become more sedentary than ever in human evolution. In working with me, we will be diving deep into your physical health, diet, sleep, and exercise routine.

My Fun Facts:

  • I’m a #girldad to 2 year old Palmer and baby Riley. They have been the most fantastic experience of my entire life, and I become more in love with them every day. My wife Elizabeth and I also have 2 Cavapoos.
  • I’m fanatical about traveling abroad and tasting my way through the world. Whenever I have the opportunity to travel, I take it. I think it’s the best remedy for the human soul, especially when the routine gets to be a bit too much.
  • “If we couldn’t laugh, we would all go insane.” I love comedy, and I think a life without comedic relief is not worth living. I’m a BIG fan of Saturday Night Live, not the new stuff but the classics with Chis Farley, David Spade, Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, and the list goes on! My favorite skit has to be Will Ferrell’s More Cowbell or Chris Farley’s Chippendales Audition/A Van Down By The River skits. Now that I think about it, there’s no way I could decide. I love them all!
  • I’m a massive Liverpool Football Club supporter, and I recently attended their game, where they won the most prestigious tournament in all of Europe, The Champion’s League.
  • I’m highly active, and I love to exercise/be outdoors. Not so much the part where I have to train, but I love competing. I play soccer two nights a week on a team, I’m a member of the St. Pete Cycling Club, and I take any opportunity to get outside and play sports. I’m obsessed with skiing and snowboarding (I was probably born in the wrong state), but I try and get out to the mountains as much as I can. I love hiking, camping, fishing, paddle boards, mountain biking, and other high-adrenaline sports. As I mentioned, I’m a big proponent of taking care of your body because I know if I’m eating right and exercising mentally, I feel great!
