Support For Individuals, Couples, & Families

Helping to obtain fulfilling relationships.

Welcome to Stress Free Therapy

Welcome and thank you for visiting my business site. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Winter Park providing psychotherapy and forensic services to the community. My style of therapy is solution-focused, warm, and empathic and I view each client as the expert in their own healing. As clients begin to understand the obstacles that may be holding them back from a more fulfilling life, they begin to make changes in their attitudes and actions which help them to feel more empowered, successful, and joyful. My mantra for all clients is to “never give up” until you reach your goals. I view my therapist role as a guide, offering encouragement, resources, and hope as the client makes changes that offer them increased life satisfaction, a greater sense of wholeness and hope for the future.
