I started as a therapist because I wanted to use the many experiences I have had in life to help others navigate their own. I am currently licensed in Wisconsin. In 2006, I earned a master's degree in criminal justice. Then, in 2013, I went back to school to get a master's degree in counseling. My client base consists of those who have experienced trauma, those who are survivors of domestic violence, and those with anxiety, depression, adjustment and relationship concerns, and addiction. I have worked with the homeless, the addicted, the abused, the abuser, the clergy, the parent, and countless others. The approaches I use in therapy depend on the person I am working with and the issues they are struggling with. Some issues need a more cognitive response, some a somatic-based response, and other a Biblical response. Still, others need a behavioral response, and others a solution-focused response.
I think the reason I can help is because I have a wide array of life experiences, combined with a solid education, and laid back demeanor. My current clients often comment on how relaxed and easy to talk to I am; this is something I pride myself on. I also work hard to get to know my clients and their stories. I am in constant study to make sure I am informed and equipped to help.

Paul has provided me to open up and talk with someone who just gets me. He understand how I work and function and offers me practical advise for me to work on. I wish I could have longer sessions with him!
