I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than 40 years of experience in the helping professions, including 15 years of work as a licensed counselor. Therapy offers the opportunity for personal exploration, insight and change to work through difficult times toward a healthy adjustment. I will work at your pace to address the issues you are facing and promote an improved quality of life.
I have worked with many people who have experienced grief, depression, anxiety, trauma, troubled relationships, or spiritual distress. In these times, a trained guide makes the difference in overcoming the obstacles and building a new life. I believe my breadth of experience, compassion, and insight will be useful in addressing your concerns.
I often use Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which focuses on both thought patterns and behaviors. Discovering new viewpoints, confronting actions that hinder adjustment, and mastering new skills provide a powerful force to move us toward our goals. Hundreds of studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of this tool to bring positive change. As the need arises I may also utilize Acceptance Commitment Therapy or Cognitive Processing Therapy for trauma.
Spirituality is often a vital element is strengthening the work toward wellness. I respect each client’s spiritual perspective as unique. I hold a progressive faith that believes in the love, goodness and redeeming power of God to work in every life.
Seeking help requires great courage. I hope you will take a step forward to find a new path toward a better life. Let's work together on it!

LPC #64754 (Expires: 2022-08-31)
Larry is a great active listener and has the ability to put my feelings to words that make sense after I ramble on and on. That focus really helps.
Larry has such a good memory for what I tell him, I paused my counseling for about 6 months and he remembered everything we had discussed months later
Larry has been very considerate and attentive to my needs.
Larry has helped me walk through one of the most traumatic experiences of my life. His encouragement and insights have been critical and a powerful force to help me move forward.
Larry has helped me to grow by leaps and bounds as a person in dealing with past trauma, anxiety, depression, and setting and maintaining healthy boundaries.
He listens and responds in a way that allows a person to retain their dignity when maneuvering delicate topics. He empowers a person to work through whatever they may be dealing with and take an active role in the ownership of attaining a positive outcome! He is an absolute blessing.
He's highly experienced, always helpful, and compassionate.
Larry is a terrific counselor. He makes me feel heard and understood. He also has equipped me with valuable tools that have helped me in starting to accept myself. These tools have also helped me to combat irrational thoughts and to be kinder to myself.
Before I was accustomed to counselors mostly listening to my problems and giving their insight. However, Larry goes a step above and shows me how I have the power to control and change certain things. It truly has been empowering.
I have already recommended BetterHelp to several people. Larry is great!
Larry does an excellent job of fostering self discovery while tactfully directing the conversation as needed. His kind demeanor promotes a therapeutic relationship and makes sharing tough topics easier.
Larry is supportive and consistently responsive. He provides practical help and gets back to me so quickly. In between sessions, I'm always confident what next-steps I can be taking to make progress in the direction of my goals, and can share with him along the way as I make adjustments or struggle following through. Larry has been so helpful and such an encouragement!
I finally see hope after talking with Larry!!
I was on the fence for a lot of things, I was lost in my on fog of bad thoughts and vibes. 2 weeks isn't enough to truly say things have progressed far, but baby steps in the right direction from his words and worksheets have brighten my outlook. Very respectful of my situation and responds in a timely fashion. I trust Larry to point me in the right direction.
I’m very glad that I have him as my counselor. I have never felt so confident in revealing my personal information with somebody before. I come from a different background but he has always been so supportive. I’m still having problems now but because of him I’ve been able to do a lot of things in my life that I never thought that I would do before.
I feel like I'm journaling, and getting helpful responses! This is awesome and you don't have to make an appointment or skip work to communicate with your counselor.
I am so grateful for Larry and his support.
Larry is a kind, friendly, and wise counselor.
Within the few short weeks I've spent with Larry, I am impressed that he can quickly pinpoint areas on which to work. Our contact is primarily once a day via email and we both have busy schedules, I'm sure. So he seems to have great time management skills and has been very responsive. I'm grateful for what I've received so far. Thank you Larry! Thank you Betterhelp !
In facing some tough life problems, Larry has been outstanding in guiding me through the process of finding solutions. He has helped me to stay on target and has helped me find solutions that were beneficial to me. He has always responded in a timely manner and leaves with a positive thought and things to work towards. He is a perfect match for my needs at this time in my life.
Larry listens to me and asks questions that help me be strong and reflective. He gives me strategies to work through the most difficult days and even moments. He is also flexible.
Larry has been extraordinarily helpful with setting some goals for me and driving me forward to meet those goals. He provides insight and perspective that helps shift my focus from negative to positive thinking. Our interactions have been helpful every time and if he can't get back to me right away for any reason, he will send me a message to let me know when he intends to get back with me. Overall, this has been a great experience and I look forward to making progress as time goes on.
