About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a PhD in Human Services with a specialization in counseling. I work with individuals and couples. Historically, most of my clientele have been adults, followed by adolescents, and then older children. I currently work with adults only.

Most of my therapeutic services involve adult relationship issues. These include adjusting to major life events and various forms of loss including health, divorce, empty nest issues, and intimacy problems. People commonly experience symptoms consistent with depression and anxiety during these life events. Other conditions I work with include attention deficit disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, post traumatic stress disorder, work related stress problems, adjustment issues, and faith or spiritual issues.

Like most mental health clinicians, I have a rather eclectic approach to counseling in that I borrow from several theories of human behavior and development. However, I gravitate to the existential/transpersonal model in that I'm interested in what the person is experiencing today while considering the concept that people are spiritual beings embodied. I incorporate the cognitive behavioral model and, at times, utilize a more psychoanalytic model exploring the person's childhood experiences within a developmental context.

My personal counseling philosophy consists of three fundamental pillars:

1. Human beings are spiritual beings embodied (Existential/Transpersonal Theory).

2. People served and I are more alike than different. Things important to me as a person tend to be important to all people in general.

3. The people I serve have the answers they seek before treatment begins. The therapeutic process serves to illuminates paths/options and the answers become more clearly visible.

I schedule 8 sessions per day, Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. This schedule enables me to provide 40 sessions per week, each session lasting 45 minutes.
