Welcome! I am a Masters level licensed Clinical Social Worker, and have been in the helping field for over 30 years. I’ve provided clinical services in emergency rooms, inpatient psychiatric units, and outpatient mental health clinics. I've also worked in both inpatient (detox/rehab) and outpatient D&A programs. Treatment approaches include Mindfulness, ACT, Motivational Interviewing, Smart Recovery, Solution-Focused, Family Therapy, Hypnosis Trauma Therapy, CBT, DBT, and more.
I especially enjoy helping people identify and process their "core values" that can guide them in their choices and help with self-esteem. Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) from Dr. Steven Hayes can help a person to utilize their commitment to their core values. The person's own values can then guide then in taking steps to help themself and feel better. Focusing and processing values and feelings and taking steps takes time and effort but it's worth it for the results.
I also enjoy working with couples and helping with communications, intimacy, and repairing relationships.
My current practice hours are Monday through Friday, including some evening hours. I'm pretty flexible, depending on your schedule. I do receive the messages as a way to communicate and schedule live appointments. I'll check the messages during the week and to some extent after hours including weekends. You can schedule a live session with me ahead of time. All the formats are fine to utilize, including the live chat, phone, or video.
I hope to work with you, as well. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Tim is great. Patient, caring and understanding. Knows a lot while still being very personable.
Tim was absolutely amazing! I mean every single word of that. Incredibly kind and intelligent. Very supportive and this was after my first session so I think that says a lot! Thank you so much Tim for helping me on this new journey of self care!
A kind man.. great advice..exellent listener and very pro..thanks Tim..you Rock!
I was skeptical about online therapy at first but Tim is absolutely wonderful! I have been struggling with so much lately and have been very overwhelmed trying to deal with everyday life. Tim has helped me see a bigger picture and has given me the tools to work for what I value. I look forward to our sessions each week because I know he will provide a safe, respectful, and enjoyable experience. I am very thankful to work with Tim!
Tim is great. I worked with another therapist for about a year and was feeling like I was getting nowhere, after just a few sessions with Tim he helped me get to the core issues and work through them quickly. I am grateful for his help
I love Tim! He is honest and offers so much help and encouragement. He had really gotten me through a dark time. He’s great!
Tim is a great listener. He always remembers things that we talked about before and things that I wanted to touch on in future sessions.
Tim is really experienced, passionate in what he does, caring, and a good listener. I can have a conversation with him on anything.
Tim does great work. He has a vast amount of knowledge in multiple counseling theories which allows him to help in many ways. It's great to go into a session knowing that whatever you need help with and however you need it, you'll get it.
I am so grateful for Tim and feel so incredibly lucky to have been matched with such a kind, compassionate, and all around amazing counselor! We have been working together for a month now and I already feel like I've made a lot of progress with my mental health! Whenever I find myself feeling low or overwhelmed with life, I know he will always find time to talk to me. He is a fantastic listener, always keeps me laughing, and gives me the right tools to help overcome the obstacles in my life. All in all, Tim in an amazing therapist and I always look forward to our weekly sessions!
Tim is awesome and understanding. He gives me the confidence to be myself and is supportive
Tim has been a wonderful support. He offers a very caring and supportive listening ear and helpful feedback. He is the type of therapist I have been hoping to find!
Tim is simply awesome
Talking with Tim was wonderful. He is so positive and I genuinely looked forward to our meetings. I enjoyed having actual conversations rather than someone just sitting and listening, taking notes. He was very friendly and was great at communicating. Our sessions were very helpful and I always left feeling better!
Tim is incredibly personable and easy to talk to. His positivity backed by endless knowledge rubs off. He is a great therapist and great person i think anyone eould benefit from a couple conversations with Tim. He is kind, and has a genuine passion to help and see people be the best they can be. I feel enormously furtinate that I was placed with Tim and gained a great deal of tools and knowledge on how I can be the best version of me that I can be..
Very Helpful, provides very intelligent, logical insights.
Tim has been a really helpful person to talk to. He has helped immensely through many problems that really bog you down. I would recommend him to anyone looking to receive counseling.
Tim is a very professional and patient therapist, the session I went with him has making me feel so much better from my OCD. Say if you guys have any OCD or anxiety issues, Tim is extremely recommended.
Very pleased with my recent experience. Tim is a good listener and very receptive of what I had to say also good with recommendations for alternative therapies. Looking forward to my next session with him.
He is so friendly! And really helps when I need it :)
