A respectful, direct style that challenges distorted thinking, looks for actionable solutions and empowers the client to clarify their values and priorities characterizes my approach. Solution-focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are central in session. My wife and I have 9 adopted, multi-racial children and have lived experience with trauma and mental illness. Past practice settings include churches, youth homes, schools, psychiatric and medical-surgical hospitals, homeless shelters, addiction residential facilities, home health care, and outpatient mental health clinics in urban and rural areas. I hold a Master of Social Work from Western Michigan University and have an LMSW license (Clinical & Macro practice) from the State of Michigan, am a registered telehealth provider in the State of Florida, and hold emergency privileges in New Hampshire. Areas of practice/specialization include trauma, attachment, anger, intimacy, narcissism, grief, adoption issues, aging, caregiver stress/burnout, process addiction/compulsive behaviors, depression, anxiety, Christian spirituality (Proverbs 27:6), bipolar, special needs including Deaf culture, young adulthood issues, and grief/loss. When a client is open, I welcome engagement regarding spiritual and eternal matters.

Timothy has been great!
Great and Caring
My counselor is very knowledgeable and supportive. Such a saving grace in my life!
Tim is a solid adviser. He is very personal and sticks strongly to a Christian context. He does not shy away from telling you his thoughts.
Tim has been a great counsellor. I’ve felt a lot of personal growth while meeting with him, and the people around me have seen it as well.
Easy to talk to. Motivating. Understanding. Compassionate. He has been so helpful and respectful of my journey and point of view, while providing helpful insight and support. Truly helpful. Highly recommend.
Timothy is one of the most understanding and supportive therapists I have had the chance to interact with. He is super flexible with his hours and has really great constructive advice and guidance for being able to take each day by the horns. He also is really great about reaching out with advice on how to view a situation differently than you might initially think to.
