About Me

Are you struggling with a challenging, intimate, social, family, or work relationship? Is it impacting your self-worth and self-confidence? Are you feeling controlled, belittled, hurt, cheated, afraid, or limited? Are you ready to change the dynamics of the relationship? If so, you might find it helpful to meet with someone who has experienced these feelings and understands how difficult it can be to manage these feelings. Let's begin by identifying your talents and strengths to help you live, laugh, love, and let go of past hurts.
Furthermore, as a veteran, I understand the unique issues military members, retirees, veterans, and their families encounter. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) for trauma and abuse. I also use systemic family therapy for family and marital issues as well.
Whether it's finding self-compassion or diving into the thoughts that seem stuck on repeat, I can help you discover joy, passion, and purpose in your life and foster genuine connections with the people who matter most. Contact me today to schedule your first step toward feeling better.

Andrew has been very patient and flexible with me. He knows when to listen and when to ask the probing questions. I’ve already seen benefits after seeing him only 2-3 months. Thank you, Andrew

He's great, every session we've had I've felt better about myself. I look forward to many more.

Written by K.A. on May 17, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

I came looking for ways to cope with issues in my life and Andrew gave them to me. He addressed my issues and how to work on them during the week. When I came to the next session, he wanted to know how things had worked out that week. I have tried the things he suggested and feel better and have a different outlook on life.
Thanks Andrew

Written by Q.U. on Feb 22, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, coping with life changes, trauma and abuse, and anger management

Upon thinking about starting therapy I was extremely hesitant and quite frankly I still feel anxious prior to a scheduled meeting as I'm not the type of person to share things with others. I didn't have confidence in therapy but after having a few sessions with Andrew I'm very keen on continuing to work with him as he is patient, direct and very knowledgeable. I'm glad I receive him as a therapist and looking forward to the future. Thanks Andrew and Betterhelp!

Written by C.A. on Feb 22, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues

Written by K.E. on Feb 19, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 3 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

Written by B.R. on Feb 16, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and coping with life changes

Andrew is an amazing therapist. I feel like she really does listen and try his best to help you from your point of view. Give him a try and I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Written by L.A. on Feb 16, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, compassion fatigue, and career difficulties

Andrew is an intelligent guy. He knows what he is talking about, and seems to understand the unique issues men have. With his Military background, he is especially qualified to help that population, but also men in general. He listens, validates, and provides me with things to work on that are beneficial. I have noticed a drastic change in myself and my attitude since therapy, and am very grateful to Andrew!

Written by M.E. on Feb 13, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Andrew’s been really great in helping me process through past traumas and current challenges, and shinning a light on how these are connected. I feel like he’s not just my therapist he’s also my cheerleader and genuinely rooting for me which is really nice.

Written by D.A. on Feb 10, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and adhd

Andrew is very personable and has helped me to see different areas of my life in which I can improve. I now know how best to handle stress in my life and have been able to see a lot of progress during my time meeting with him.

Written by C.H. on Feb 09, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 4 months on issues concerning depression, addictions, eating disorders, self esteem, and bipolar disorder

Very insightful. His recommendations are things that I would have never thought contribute to the way I feel. He has a calm, confident, and understanding demeanor that makes me feel like I am talking with my father or other mature masculine figure. He is a great listener and somehow knows all of the right questions to ask.

Written by J.O. on Jan 24, 2022 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Andrew is very personable and understanding and seems to be able to pick up and point out issues I'm dealing with well and exsplain things to me and ways to help

Written by A.R. on Dec 14, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and adhd

I get more out of my 30 minute sessions with Andrew than I did out of hour long sessions with my last therapist. I know it won't be the same for everyone, but for me the extra cost of therapy without using my insurance is worth it just because I finally have a therapist who is helping me actually improve, not simply being a good listener and nothing else. He's even concerned about me paying the extra cost and wants to help me as quickly as possible to mitigate that. What a rare find, imo. If you have a choice, use Andrew, and not just for marriage counseling (I'm single). He knows his stuff.

Written by M.A. on Dec 04, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 3 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, self esteem, and adhd

Andrew is awesome! His approach allows trust to build and he treats everything you say with respect. I am grateful for everything he has helped me with.

Written by L.E. on Nov 29, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, anger management, and coping with life changes

Written by C.A. on Nov 08, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Andrew is very good at identifying the key issues and encouraging me to confront the hard questions that I need to deal with in order to progress/heal. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services as a therapist.

Written by H.O. on Nov 08, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 2 months on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, and parenting issues

I have been in therapy for 10 years, and it wasn't until I started working with Andrew that I really started to become confident and centered. I have bipolar and feel like most therapists see limited potential; Andrew sees past it and has pushed me to not accept low standards for myself.

Written by A.S. on Nov 08, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 3 weeks on issues concerning addictions

Really like the fella, he at least convinced me that he knows what he’s doing.

Written by C.A. on Nov 05, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning self esteem, adhd, and addictions

Think of your ideal therapist, sounding board, ear to talk off, shoulder to cry on, friend to laugh and be sad with, best advice giver, etc. That’s Andrew.

He is excellent and offers excellent therapy. Couldn’t ask for a better person to help me through my journey.

Written by J.O. on Nov 02, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, sleeping disorders, coping with life changes, and coaching

Andrew is a patient and thoughtful listener. He asks good questions. Allows silence, when silence is needed. And, behind the scenes, he connects the dots. He is prepared for the session that follows.

So far I have only seen Andrew once but with that one session I can already tell that he cares about helping me. He has already helped me and I can really tell the difference from my last therapist and with Andrew. Andrew is the best!

Written by L.I. on Sep 08, 2021 after therapy with Andrew for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, parenting issues, and compassion fatigue

Andrew is the kind of counselor that listens and identifies his client, I guess a better way to put it is he’s seeks first understanding and then derives his approach according to the individual he is assisting! I have found myself highly impressed with our sessions!
