"Counseling can seem like an intimidating prospect, sharing your heart and mind with a stranger in hopes of finding something better, something different. Whether you're struggling to find an identity in the chaos of life, anxious about tomorrow, or feeling stuck and hopeless, having your own personal GPS through a counseling relationship can make a huge difference between driving in circles or discovering vitality and joy in the journey.

"There has been a major shift for men in our culture. In a previous generation it was considered wise to "cut off" from your emotional self. That style is no longer effective for men. Today men are seeking greater self-awareness. They need to be more aware of their emotions so that they can navigate relationships with strength and wisdom. I have a relaxed style and I believe humor is a part of the healing process. I am interested in helping men move from distress, confusion and pain to clarity, peace, and self-acceptance."
