EMOTIONS R US 1

Oprah Winfrey, thank you, because without you there would not be a ‘DrBev’ Mental Health Counseling. Back in the 90’s, I had the great fortune to be in the audience of the “Oprah” show ‘300 Women and their views on Men.”

To my surprise I was asked to share a thought that I had written on a questionnaire given to us prior to the show. I was so excited to be given the opportunity to be in the audience, I said of course, I would be happy to stand at mic #3 and share what I had written on the form. To my delight, Oprah shared her thoughts on what I had said and waited for my reply.

After my brain took a minor pause, “Oprah is talking to ME!!!!!!” I answered her, and shortly thereafter the show went to commercial. During the break, my idol, Oprah, came over and sat down on the podium beside my chair. To me, in my mind, we talked as if we were Sista’s from another mother. Long story short, I was requested, by Oprah, to come to the mic two more times.

At one point, Oprah asked what I did for a living and as I shared my story -she encouraged me to go back to graduate school and entertain the thought of Counseling. This was a life defining moment for me. My world has never been the same since that trip to Chicago….…And So I’m Here!

I facilitate individual, couple, group, family, and alternative lifestyle counseling in Tampa Bay Florida. My therapeutic focus – Autism, Post traumatic Stress Disorder and Alternative Lifestyles.

I am sensitive to and affirming of ethnicity, sexual orientation, and people’s unique spirituality and desire and need for meaningful relationships and connections.

Incarcerated Male population
Dual Diagnosis Mental Health

I value an integrated approach to working with people, my approach endeavors to integrate the emotional, psychological, spiritual, and physical aspects of what it means to be authentically, human.
