I have six years of experience counseling clients with a variety of struggles, personalities, and life experiences as well as counseling in group settings. Each counseling experience brings challenges and victories and I consider it an honor and privilege to come alongside individuals or couples in need. I personally see my role as counselor as an opportunity to serve. With this in mind my goal is to listen, to understand and to dive in with my client and fight alongside in their journey toward healing.
I have a passion to help others in whatever situation and have spent a lot of time with individuals struggling with depression and anxiety as well as other mental health and life issues. My familiarity has given me confidence and success when coming alongside my clients in these areas. There is also a special place in my heart for those going through marriage problems or relationship issues. I have focused on marriage counseling in the last few years and it has become a major strength area in my counseling. I typically use counseling techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and reality therapy. I also have a passion for Christian counseling techniques and principles and enjoy counseling individuals and couples seeking biblical guidance.
I have lived in Ohio most of my life and have four sons with my wife of eleven years. I am a follower of Christ and self-proclaimed geek. I also very much enjoy the outdoors, sports, music, reading, and just spending time with friends and family. I have a passion for helping others and being involved in my community.
