I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Wisconsin (and still active in Connecticut). I have 17 years of experience working with the Veteran population. My career began as a Combat Stress Control specialist in the Army, assisting troops in Iraq. My passion is focusing on men's wellness. This includes handling of past traumas, self-worth, forgiveness, fatherhood, loneliness, sexual health concerns, relationship issues, physical fitness, anger management, depression, and career choices.
I am considered personable and genuine. I know life is difficult and sometimes there is no good answer to many of our daily--or lifelong--concerns. I think it is smart to go forward with guidance and care. I have worked with trauma and solution-focused therapy. I think there are many healthy options for but it starts with exploring where you are and what you need.
When you believe you could benefit from discussing matters that weigh you down or make you feel stuck, please know that I am here to work with you. I provide honest, thoughtful, and compassionate listening and will work with you to discover or form a path that may work for you.
