About me

I am a clinical professional counselor licensed in Kentucky, Missouri Kansas, Iowa, and Colorado with more than 15 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I've treated clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substance abuse issues, process addictions, career challenges, OCD, and ADHD. I've also helped many people heal, who have experienced physical trauma, neglect, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse.

My therapy style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with sensitivity, mutual - respect, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and gestalt, with mindfulness and awareness. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to confront dysfunctional habits and patterns, and to seek a more fulfilling and meaningful life. You are ready to take that step to change, and I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Listens to understand, never to judge. Guides you to answers, never presumes to tell you what the problem is. Everyone needs someone like Arthur in their life.

Spiritual, emotionally intelligent, and thoughtful.

Sometimes, he needs to take time to think about a solution but it’s usually solid.

I think some liberalism would help me feel more comfortable but other than that he is good:)

I get homework and exercises that are just challenging enough that I can complete them and feel like I am always moving forward.
