About me

I began working in the field at a VA Hospital Indiana psychiatric unit at the age of 18. My official first mental health job was at a psychiatric inpatient unit in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1977 when I was 22. From there I was hired at the local mental health center and worked the next 40 years. I retired in from my job of 40 years the same year but have continued to do private practice under my own Limited Liability Company because I have a passion to work with clients who have mental health issues. I am excited to keep working with mental health clients, hopefully for a long time to come. My specialties include, trauma counseling, grief work, family and couples work, anxiety disorders and depression. I specifically love to take Trauma cases and people who have anxiety disorders. Since the pandemic began, I have done Telehealth services from my home and in the private practice office. Better Help with its focus on telehealth is the perfect place for me to work. I enjoy being a therapist because I feel it was the path I was meant to follow. I look forward to accepting new clients.

Art is incredibly kind, thoughtful, and supportive. He is great at balancing when to speak and listen, as well as when to be sincere or help spark levity. I highly recommend him as a guide to overcome stressors or traumatic experiences.

When I started better help I really need to have some hope and regain my balance etc, everything felt chaotic and I couldn’t see how can I get myself get better.

Art is so easy to speak to and also very experienced and knowledgeable.
He is also very empathetic and understanding.
Right away I felt hopeful and that is what I needed the most at the time.
And more I see him and contemplate and try new skills I learn that also make me feel more positive and empowering.
I am so grateful
