This is how they have answered the following questions:

  • Do you believe homosexuality is a sin? No
  • Do you believe gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered people should have the right to marry and adopt children? Yes
  • Do you believe that homosexuality is in any way secondary or less than heterosexuality? No

They have all signed the following statement:

"I believe that all people are created equal and entitled to all civil rights and liberties as available in this country; that all people deserve to feel safe and free to be authentic within their families, jobs and communities; and that oppression of the LGBT community must end."

    I am a licensed clinical social worker, and I want to help you to explore ways to feel better. I believe we are incredibly resilient, even when we feel anything but. I offer a warm and safe environment in which we both can share in a dialogue that encourages you to speak as your most authentic self and begin moving forward in your life.

    I work with individuals (12 years old and up), couples, and families. My specialties include self-esteem, compassion fatigue, binge eating, mood disorders, gender/gay issues, bereavement, and psycho-spiritual work.

    I have two practice locations, one in Tampa and another in New Port Richey, with evening and weekend hours. It's important to me that my services are accessible to most everyone, especially those who don't have insurance. I offer one of the best prices for licensed clinical work that you will find.
