About me

I am a social worker in Florida with 6 years experience. I have worked with crisis and suicide prevention for many years. My specialties include substance abuse counseling, and grief and loss counseling. I find that I am able to understand my clients in ways that others cannot. With a technique that incorporates finding one's own Inner Strength and uncovering things that they do not know about themselves. It is important to realize the positive qualities of not only yourself but your life in general and use that as the basis to better yourself. It is time to make the decision to be better.

He is an excellent listener and makes it easy to express yourself. He seems genuinely interested in what concerns me, what I am seeking and how he could help me. l am glad I paid the money and went for it. I was very hesitant. Wondering just how much could be gained in online chats. I was genuinely surprised and pleased.
