About Me

Education: Two Master degrees, Master of Divinity (M-Div) and Master of Counseling Psychology (MS)
U.S. Navy Retired, Chaplain, serving 29 years. While serving on active duty as a Navy Chaplain, I attended a one year school for Pastoral Counseling. Immediately following this , at my next duty station, I began a second masters degree program for Counseling Psychology. This helped me become a much better Chaplain. I also received extensive training at the US Navy's Alcohol and Drug Rehabilitation Center and then conducted alcohol and drug counseling with military members. Two years after this degree program I was licensed in the State of Florida (my home) as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). After the US Navy, I established the Upper Room Counseling Center, serving people in the Central Florida area. During this time I specialized in Anxiety disorders, Grief counseling and Addictions. I have had the opportunity to help many people mature as individuals and recover from their addictions. My personal motto has been: "Helping Others Help Themselves". Today, it would be a privilege to help you also.
