About Me

For close to 35 years, I have been helping clients improve their mental health through Cognitive Behavior Therapy. The last nine years have been the most rewarding part of my counseling career. As a private practitioner, I have worked successfully with military families and active duty members returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.

As a varsity football and baseball player in high school, I finished my athletic career at the University of Connecticut where I participated in Varsity football and lettered two years. I earned a Bachelor of Education from the University of Connecticut. I completed my Master's Degree from Pepperdine University and my advanced counseling Certificate from the University of Bridgeport.

After college, I served Honorably in the United States Military and started working as a counselor in schools and mental health agencies in Connecticut. For the last 13 years, I have been working as a private practitioner in Eastern North Carolina.
