I believe that true healing happens when we look within ourselves and learn to accept who we are as a person. As we learn to minimize our weaknesses by recognizing our strengths, we grow in the process.

With the ups and downs of life, there are ways we learn to cope and deal with the good and the bad that life throws at us. Some days are easier than others, and finding peace in the midst of chaos is easier said than done. With each new "adventure" we have opportunities to learn and grow. Life is better when we are thriving, instead of just surviving. My hope is that through counseling we can explore together what makes a difference for you and how you can thrive. It is my goal to help others by walking with them in life as they explore and discover what brings them joy and fulfillment, and supporting them as they reach those goals.

Licensed in FL & NC! Are you thinking that things are ok but they could be much better? Or at least, a lot less dark and stagnant? I know the importance of finding someone who lets you take your time, respects your emotional development and upholds your dignity. I want to help you make sense of the life that you have and turn it into the one you want. Growth looks different for all of us. What blocks us from it might not block everybody else, too. We are all doing the best we can and deserve the best not just for, but from ourselves. Do you want a helping hand and open heart to help you reconnect with the center of who you are?

One afternoon I told my wife that after another tour, I would be leaving the U.S. Coast Guard for a very different career. Serving my country and the men and women of the U.S. Coast Guard is one of the greatest honors and privileges of my life. After serving for nine years I knew that directly assisting and serving people is the life-giving work of my heart. I became a Social Worker and therapist because it is my greatest joy and pleasure to support you as you unify all your strengths and gifts to release your Faith, Hope, and Love into society.
