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.

My foundation in therapy has always been working with children, teens, families and women's mental health. Each person is unique, and each situation is different. My purpose is to help you design a plan to address whatever it may be that you are wanting to work on. I love to incorporate different methods and approaches such as bringing in art interventions, games, music, reading to accompany traditional treatment perspectives. One quote I love is- It's not about what it is, it's about what it can become- Dr. Seuss. I love to explore the past, present and then develop a beautiful future vision.

Many of the children and adolescents I work with are struggling with feelings of depression, anxiety, anger issues, family relationships, low self-esteem, peer/friendships issues, body images concerns, and challenges related to disruptive behavior and inattention.
Each day it seems that life presents a new challenge, often causing us to question certain decisions that we have made or to consider new paths that we would like to explore. My goal is to gain a clear picture of each individual's needs, explore new and more effective ways of problem solving, and help each individual develop greater insight and growth. I believe the relational component of therapy is essential and serves at the foundation for establishing trust, compassion, empathy, and respect. I have expertise in working with individuals of all ages: children, adolescents, adults and families.
