About Me

I attended Fordham University in New York City for my undergraduate degree in philosophy. I received the Phi Sigma Tau award for graduating in the top 1% of the country . I then attended Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach for my graduate degree in mental health counseling, graduating Magna cum Laude.

As to work: for four years I worked directly under the auspices of the head psychiatrist of Sandy Pines, which is a locked psychiatric hospital for children up to the age of 18 in Tequesta Florida. I have also worked briefly at a place called Suncoast Mental Health where I was a therapist for adults as well.
Beyond The above, I have been in private practice since May of 2014.


My therapeutic approach is solution focused and proactive. Working as a team, we try to gain biographical insight and to confront obstacles, thereby changing and developing skills that lead to confident decision-making and lasting solutions. My work is characterized by empathy, optimism and collaboration. I am straight forward without being harsh, and encouraging without being judgmental.

I work with individuals confronted by various personal problems such as dating and relationship issues; infidelity; Break-ups and divorce; parenting; career matters; depression; anxiety and stress management and many more.

My clients depart from our counseling sessions feeling stronger, empowered and self-aware. This ultimately enhances their ability to connect on a more intimate level in all interpersonal relationships.

I primarily use techniques adapted from psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal neurobiology. These disciplines combined together create a powerful lens through which we can understand our inner lives with more clarity and improve our relationships with others.

"good!"

Rating: [5 out of 5 stars!]

"This program helped me to focus on changing and recognizing the cause of unacceptable behavior. I also want to add that I was very concerned at age 80 that my issues would not be comprehended by a Therapist much younger than I. After all 80 years is a lot of baggage. I have been very pleased with my interaction with my therapist. I definitely was understood. The worksheets helped me to understand me, too."

"I've been on other sites for counseling and this is, by far, the greatest, most helpful counseling site I've ever come across. I would recommend this site to anyone. There's so much you can do on here and the counselors get back with you very fast if you have the plan that includes messaging. It is well worth the money."

"I've already left a review; it was a bit of an essay. I'd like to leave a shorter one to say that Lance is more than a therapist. He is a listener, and all the things you'd expect (or hope for) from a therapist; but more than that, he is a TEACHER. That's what I've needed during my 25+ years bouncing from one in-person service to another. Don't get me wrong, I love the NHS and my current care is excellent and effective, but now it's complemented by an excellent therapist and teacher. Perfect!"
