I have over 13 years of acute, outpatient and residential mental health/substance abuse treatment. I enjoy staying physically active, reading books, listening to music, attending sporting events, and spending time with my family and close friends. Recently, I have gained a passion for teaching and mentoring the youth and young adults from all sorts of backgrounds. I have experience with clients with a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, life stressors, anger management, domestic violence, men issues and even career challenges.

My counseling style is personable and interactive. I believe in meeting my clients where they are in their therapeutic process, but also to challenge them to reach for and meet attainable goals.

GREAT clinician. Very knowable and relatable. He inspires a sense of comfort necessary for effective therapy to occur.

I’ve only been seeing Westly for a few weeks but I’m impressed. I have a hard time opening up but talking with him is safe, easy, and does not feel forced! I can’t wait to continue sessions and become the best version of myself.

He tells the hard truths while keeping empathy in mind, which is something I appreciate. He's really helped me discover some things about myself as well as provide practical measures for learning how to manage my overthinking. I'm really grateful.
