I am a certified counselor for over nine years and I have worked with individuals and couples for over twenty years as a spiritual counselor. Primarily, I have worked with people who are experiencing emotional distressed and concern due to family issues, anxiety or depression and complicated grief. I have always been interested in helping people unpack these very complicated issues and allowing people a place to voice their issues and concerns This, I believe, is the best way for me to help people. Giving people an opportunity and the space to express themselves allows me to design treatment to understand the individuals' particular manner in which they conceptualize their living situation. Many times people need an opportunity to voice their spiritual concerns as well, to which I can speak from my experience as a spiritual pastoral counselor. In addition to my license as a professional counselor, I have attained a ministerial degree to help individuals sort out spiritual concerns. In sessions, individuals with a spiritual focus to their issues can begin to gain new insights into their personal spiritual journey.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Intimacy-related issues, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Coping with life changes, Attachment Issues

At the beginning I had a bit slow connection and felt he is not showing empathy. But with the second conversation and on he was really showing empathy communicating very well send texts and very supportive. From the first conversation he could analyze my situation and offered ways to fix my relationship. Simple he is a very good counselor.
