Biographical Info

“My personal counseling approach is to provide people with caring, respect, honesty, integrity and empathy. My goal is for clients to finish counseling feeling heard, cared for and loved. Sometimes stress and trauma can be made worse by our own beliefs. Therapy can help identify and correct those harmful thoughts and false beliefs. Caring friends have helped my family and me to face life’s biggest challenges. Remember, you can survive even the worst of times, and there is nothing too difficult for you to handle. Let’s reason together and find your answers.
A combat veteran with 4 tours in Afghanistan and 25 years of individual, and family counseling, I treat stress and other psychological injuries, called the invisible wounds. I treat anxiety, depression, and anger, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to calm/reprogram the nervous system reducing your stressed thinking. Marriage and Family Therapy help rebuild communication bridges.
Along with my master’s and counseling experience, I completed my Ph.D. in Psychology, on August 21, 2017. My published dissertation was on combat-related PTSD among veterans of Afghanistan and Iraq.”
Years in Practice: 28
