An ideal client is one who is being just who they are in spite of all the challenges or concerns they may be dealing with.
I have weekend and some evening hours.
I work as a counselor and as an instructor for SUDC students at CVTC. I have a masters degree in counseling from the University of Iowa and am credentialed with a LPC and CSAC in Wisconsin. I work with persons who have issues related to emotional well-being, whether mental health, adjustment related, substance-use related, or couple's issues.
I have worked in a private practice setting for 12 years. I have experience with emergency work at a ER (primary suicidal assessments). I have worked in substance use disorder agencies (hospitals and clinics, inpatient and outpatient, small non-profit and a few which are profit-based). I have extensive work with employee assistance counseling. I have also worked with clients with correctional issues.
Getting to understand what one is going through is a priority. Developing a working alliance with that person is essential. Patient empowerment and collaborative problem solving are cued in on.

Troy is very friendly and understanding. He sends me a clickable resources that I can work on outside of therapy. He is flexible with his scheduling and I appreciate the insights he has given me. I look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.

Troy has truly been a life saver. I felt heard and seen and didn’t feel any judgement. I feel like I was scared that my mental health concerns wouldn’t be taken seriously but I felt the exact opposite from him.

Troy is patient and kind, checks in on me when I don't message for extended periods. He's been supportive of my nonbinary identity and regularly shares resources with me that he thinks will help me or give new insights. I'm glad this seems to be a good fit for me.
