About

Please note: I am retiring 10.28.21 from counseling service. Served as an Army Social Work Officer, psychiatric team in Vietnam (1968-69), I treat military, vet & other civilian clients re depression, anxiety, grief, substance abuse, existential malaise, aging, PTSD related to war/hazardous duty -- first responders, natural disasters, accidents, race-related, sexual & other abuse. As a Social Work Professor Emeritus, I counsel re school & life adjustment issues for young adults & non-traditional students. I teach faith-based & secular forms of meditation to address various issues: OCD, mood, anxiety, anger, concentration, trauma...
I use Gestalt, Existential, Humanistic, Experiential, Cog/Beh therapies & teach meditation strategies to enhance coping, calmness, anxiety reduction, mood, anger, trauma coping. My most recent book ((2019): Faith-based & Secular Meditation: Everyday & Post-Traumatic Applications. Since 2011 I have been the external clinical consultant, Biloxi VA Vet Center.
Clients describe me at three web-sites: Yellowpages.com; Healthgrades.com; and therapistratingz.com, i.e. "...He's truly one of a kind type of doctor. He doesn't judge anything at all and just points straight at the issues...he makes us realize by ourselves what's going on and where to go.....". "Dr. S is an exceptional, compassionate therapist..."
