About Me

I am a licensed mental health counselor and have been working in the mental health arena for ever 10 years as a psychotherapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges and drug use.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I listen and provide feedback. I believe that people who want help can find the answers they are seeking with some help from me. I do not believe I have all the answers, but I am willing to work with those who want help to encourage them to find their way and give them strong guidance.
It is difficult and scary to take the first step...but you have already done that. You have started the process of change and I believe I can help you continue to seek what you need and encourage you to find your way.
I am here to help you.

I don't think I would have been able to heal like I have if it wasn't for Douglas.

I was matched with Douglas as my counselor about two weeks ago. We have had some conversations through our session board as well as two video counseling sessions throughout these last two weeks. He is spending the time to get to know and understand me, he is also getting to know what I want and need out of our sessions, my goals and has been helping me take the steps to get to where I want to be. I feel Douglas is a great listener and has been giving me some good tips to use in making sure I reach my goals. It’s a process and it takes time but one step at a time and with the help of Douglas I hope to get there soon.

Douglas is very flexible with scheduling & communication (video vs. phone call). His approach is helping me to achieve my goals at a pace that works for me, and with methods that align with my personality. Douglas sets the stage for easy discussion and open expression. I am feeling supported in my campaign of learning to read & understand myself.

Douglas is very professional and makes you feel really comfortable to open up and be yourself. I would definitely recommend Doug to someone that needed a therapist and listening ear.

Having had just a couple of phone sessions, I already feel comfortable with and grateful for Douglas's warm, relaxed, and insightful style. I immediately found myself understood, supported, and effortlessly connected with him. Already, there have been positive changes coming forth. I would enthusiastically and unreservedly recommend him as a therapist!!
