As a retired military combat veteran, I have a deep passion for helping first responders, military veterans, families and our community. I have worked with various mental health diagnoses and life setbacks including but not limited to: high stress relationships, depression, anxiety, family conflict, loss and grief, adolescent defiance, drug and alcohol dependency, PTSD, Trauma, family conflict and difficult transitions. As a therapist, I enjoy working with clients from all stages and walks of life. In our life journey we are not alone and it takes great personal courage to seek counseling for life’s obstacles and challenges.
For me, the counseling process is about turning obstacles into growth opportunities and discovery via CBT interventions to use what life throws your way to become stronger. Taking the first step in turning obstacles into opportunities involves a myriad of individual choices that stem from our unique way of thinking.
I approach counseling from both an individual and relational focus. I work from a nonjudgmental methodology. Growth never happens without discomfort, it is part of the process. My goal is to help you maintain your self-motivation through this difficult climb to overcome that discomfort and turn it into growth.
