There is a saying that, “People can live about 40 days without food, about 3 days without water, almost 8 minutes without air…but only for one second without hope.” I consider it an honor to assist people in discovering hope. Although it's true you can't change the effect events or circumstances had on you previously, you can change the effect they have on you now. Another saying goes, “Only you can decide what is important to you.” I would also be honored to assist you on your journey to healing, discovery, and a sense of purpose.

My specialties include depression/anxiety and other mood disorders, relationships, substance abuse, and anger management. I practice cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) which the late Dr. Albert Ellis described as “Our thoughts influence our feelings and behavior, our feelings influence our behavior and thoughts and our behaviors influence our feelings and thoughts."

My previous 25-year business career as well as the experiences my family has faced due to the life-threatening illnesses of my wife and daughter, give me a broad perspective on various life situations. I'm a Board Certified Professional Christian Counselor and volunteer counselor in disaster services for the American Red Cross.
