Since 2009, Sean has been sharing hope, humor, and authenticity with his clients. He specializes in serving teenagers and adults to help deal with depression, anxiety, anger, and addiction issues. Additionally, he has extensive experience in counseling with Veterans and first responders with unique trauma experiences. Sean is highly effective in helping people heal hurts they have carried and often have kept secret or hidden from others. Sean’s passion is seeing people develop new chapters in life-to the point that those closest to them take notice-as they broaden their understanding of themselves and others.
Sean treats those who are struggling with: depression, social and performance anxiety, anger, relationship issues, trauma, post-traumatic stress, addiction recovery, substance abuse, grief and loss. Sean’s inclusive counseling approach draws from a variety of psychological, behavioral, and spiritual approaches to address the unique needs of each client. He is client-centered and develops a series of interventions that balance challenging thought processes without feeling shame.
Beyond doing talk therapy, Sean has advanced training in EMDR, which specializes in treating issues related to trauma, PTSD, anxiety, and loss, often more quickly than traditional talk-therapies. EMDR allows for healing from “triggers” that lead to trauma symptoms and emotional distress, by resetting them to bring about neurological and emotional healing. People experiencing intense emotions, losing energy or “oomph,” or feeling overwhelmed and pulled a million different ways, find that EMDR provides lasting changes to handle the stressors of everyday life without the same difficulty as before.
Prior to joining Legacy, Sean worked as a clinical director for Veteran’s Affairs in the PTSD clinic. Sean has also worked as a clinician and director for individuals working toward addiction recovery in South Florida, as well as in community mental health working with teenagers, young adults, and their families.
Sean and his wife, Stevie, have been married since 2014 and enjoy traveling (especially anywhere with a beach), searching for the best local food and coffee spots, going for excessive amounts of walks as well as learning to cook new meals together.
