After years of providing a broad range of services, in the context of a traditional private practice office which I closed at the end of 2017, I began doing therapy online. I decided to do this to maintain a limited level of professional activity, available to select clients for whom the online service delivery platform would be appropriate. Services are available to children , youth, adults, and families, at the rate of $75 per 45-minute session and payable via PayPal.

I have worked extensively with special needs, children , adolescents, teens and their families, helping to raise up the individuals and the family team.
Life has changed for an uncertain period of time. Finding a safe space to really be heard, so we can process, heal and grow is helpful during this difficult time. Feeling isolated, depressed, anxious or unable to face daily challenges is normal, but finding ways to handle the stress or difficult feelings when they become overwhelming can make life easier and bring about more success and happiness in your. Sometimes it's stress within a relationship (family, dating, marriage, parenting) that can really throw us off our game. Sometimes work is overwhelming. Sometimes everything seems to get us down.

Treatment focuses on setting healthy patterns towards achieving needs for love and acceptance, improving the parent/ child relationship, improving confidence, effective stress management, identity development, healthy boundaries and improving communication skills.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, I am open to a diverse population ranging in ages and ethnicities. I invite clients to join with me to conquer unhealthy patterns and crutches which create feelings of being stuck, defeated and helpless. In therapy, clients will work towards creating a stronger, more confident and independent self. Treatment goals targeting symptoms of anxiety, depression and addressing conflictual relational patterns will ensure a happy and healthy life. My goal is that all of my clients feel 100% supported and confident that they are reaching their goals.

I know that seeking therapy services for oneself or one’s child is a complex decision.
Life transitions (like moving, changing careers, or becoming a parent) are never easy, however they happen. There are plenty of books, web sites, professional “experts,” and well-meaning know-it-all observers who are ready to tell you exactly what you need to do to be healthy and successful. Sometimes direct advice targeted at a specific solution can be helpful. Often, though, these “quick fixes” miss the mark and leave us feeling like we’ve failed. Our work together will be different as I strive to support you to discover more about yourself, better understand your own needs, and enhance your relationships with others.

I specialized in child and adolescent development and mental health needs.
I specialize in working with youth and families who have experienced trauma, have difficulty regulating their emotions, or are having difficulties in school. I understand it can be difficult for a child or adolescent to seek mental health services; I use various techniques including play and art to help engage my clients in the counseling process. I make sure to involve clients in every step of the way to ensure that the treatment plan and interventions meet the client’s unique needs. I also offer tele-counseling if transportation is an issue or you simply want to stay home!

Also being able to focus on children in families is another pertinent issue that can not be overlooked.
I did not arrive here by accident. I was created and birthed to help people. With a background in education, I love to teach. Based on my personal style, I also love to listen. Being a man of great faith, I believe in people and carry compassion. Combining all of that, by listening, asking the right questions, and a dash of teaching (skills, perspectives, and understanding) I am a well-balanced, faith-based, therapeutic professional. I believe families are part of God's plan for the Earth. I would love to be the support you are seeking.
