About me

I view therapy as the journey to reconcile the story we have written for our life with the reality that exists. I am a licensed mental health and clinical addictions counselor in Indiana. I have acquired experience in a variety of settings that include: drug court, community mental health, university counseling center, and private practice. I have been an adjunct psychology professor for undergraduate and graduate studies at Marian University in Indianapolis, IN.
I have expertise in treating addictions, mood disorders, anger management, grief, adjustment issues, self-esteem issues, and pornography addiction. I received my master's degree in clinical psychology from the University of Indianapolis. I trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic theory, dialectical behavioral therapy, client-centered therapy, and motivational enhancement therapy.
A therapist must perform good self-care in order to provide good care to others. I achieve my self-care by playing guitar, piano, fishing, and playing with my kids. I look forward to making progress with you on your journey to a healthier you!

Brad is a superb counselor. Everyone should experience someone like him as he is very knowledgeable about many different things. He is equipping me with coping skills before we delve into some of the trauma I have experienced in my lifetime. He doesn't just tell you what coping skills to do. He actually does them with you! He is very sensitive and understanding. He always has something positive to say when he responds to your messages. He is very concerned for your safety. I cannot say enough about him. He is awesome!
