About me

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with over 18 years of experience working in private practice and as a school counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I also have helped many people who desire to integrate their faith during the counseling process.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and solution-focused counseling. I believe in a collaborative process when designing a treatment plan in order to meet your specific needs.

I commend you on taking the first step to healing. It takes courage to do so and you should be proud of yourself. I look forward to walking this road of healing with you.

I’ve been very busy but my counselor has made sure he communicated well to let me know he is available!
