I believe that counseling is about people helping people. I feel that the therapeutic relationship is rooted in compassion, benevolence, healing, and growth. I also believe that all clients and their families should be treated with the utmost human dignity, fairness, respect, and care. My areas of expertise include sexual addictions, individuals, young adults, families, codependency, substance abuse, men’s issues, veterans, grief, and couple’s work. I have been in the criminal justice/human services field for a total of four years. I have a total of five years participating in and facilitating community addictions recovery groups.
