Throughout the world leaders emerge who have the ability to galvanize masses of people behind and idea or through an emotional attachment. Those leaders have the option to lead with integrity or mislead their followers (fans). On the other side of the coin, those who decide to follow any particular leader have a responsibility to hold themselves and their leader accountable for their actions. If bad leaders are able to operate in a manner that is harmful to their followers with no consequence, the followers will not become empowered and can become a slave to destructive behavior. In this episode of the Freedom Train Podcast Series, Joseph and Patrick discuss bad leaders and the mindless people who follow them. Why do people have a need to become followers? Why aren't bad leaders held accountable for their bad choices? How can people grow if they continue to blindly follow bad leaders? Tune in to hear this discussion; it's a good one.

There are times in life that we are rocked to our core. My calling in life is to help people when they feel stuck in situations. Using the therapeutic relationship to give individuals, couples, and families the coping mechanisms needed to move forward in their lives and functioning. Restoring the peace of individuals is so important to me, and I take pride in using therapy to help do that. There is no one size fits all model of therapy; however Cognitive Behavioral Therapy has worked well with the short term clients that I have had most frequently. Assisting individuals with disabilities adjust to and create their new normal, is also an area of specialty that I love. I provide therapy as well as premarital preparation courses and rehabilitation counseling.
My educational background includes a MS in Rehabilitation Counseling from Thomas University as well as being a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. I have a BS in Psychology from the Florida State University.
