I have a Bachelors and Masters degree in Social Work from the University of Central Florida. I have spent a large portion of my professional career providing therapy services for low income and impoverished families and individuals. I specialized in substance misuse, mental health, co-occurring disorders, and child dependency system. I operate from a PCOMS framework which is a specialized client centered approach focusing on client feedback and the therapeutic alliance. I have been practicing since 2011 and have held many roles including primary therapist, lead therapist, clinical director, and service quality director. I have additionally worked in many settings including for profit, non-for profit, hospital setting, residential, out patient, in home, and CSU. While working with couples we focus on what brought the couple into therapy and what steps need to be taken to strengthen the relationship. I utilize many modalities but focus on CBT, Solution Focused, Motivational Enhancement, and Insight Oriented. It is my belief (and research supports this) that if a client feels what they are working on is meaningful and beneficial is the biggest correlation to sustained and ongoing success.

Very nice. Was able to speak in clear terms making sure both partners were on the same page. Friendly and very knowledgeable.
Andrew is a very helpful and kind counselor.
Andrew is amazing. I tried counseling once before and after dealing with Andrew I realized how great it can be. Andrew makes me feel comfortable all the time and does not have his own agenda like the other counselor I tried. What a difference. I would recommend him to anyone.
Andrew is really good at synthesizing information and supporting clients figuring out what is happening for them.
