I am a licensed professional counselor licensed in Wisconsin with over 20 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, grief, trauma and abuse, including many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral and humanistic counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
I believe that we have a freedom of choice and counseling is a way to come to a greater realization of oneself through facing truth and reality in order to make more informed choices.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Joe has been absolutely wonderful. He is compassionate, reliable, and knows the exact right thing to say. You can immediately tell how much expertise and experience he has working with people. After a couple bad experiences with therapists I didn’t gel with, he has been the exact type of therapist I’ve been looking for. Couldn’t recommend him enough!
