About me

I am an LSCSW, licensed in Kansas, and an LCSW licensed in Nevada. I have been working as a clinician for over five years but have been active in the field for thirty years. I have worked with a wide range of individuals from grade school to the elderly. I am very much focused on relationship building in order to provide my clients with the feeling that they are appreciated and cared for. I provide a judgment free environment and do not like to use labels or jargon in a therapy session.

I utilize a number of different approaches in therapy, each based on the needs, personality, and expectations of the client. I have used Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness Techniques, and Trauma Informed Treatment. I use my ability to communicate to develop a rapport with the individual and build relationship to help the client feel relaxed and at ease.

He's a very soft spoken, gentle man who listens very intently. Though I've had 2 sessions with him, I can tell this is the start of something amazing.

Fred is awesome for the way my brain works. He takes the time to understand and listen before making assertions on what the cognitive or behavioral issues are.
