“I believe in a strong work ethic and I give you 100% of my talents to help you maximize your goals.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Leadership has always found me throughout my career; I counseled many people prior to my formal training as a clinician. I selected psychotherapy as my formal profession because of the many rewards gained from investing in the lives of others.
What should someone know about working with you?
As a result of my athletic career, I am a strong team player. I treat all my clients with respect and dignity. I believe in a strong work ethic and I give you 100% of my talents to help you maximize your goals. I will work as hard as you are willing to work to accomplish your goals. I believe when my client wins, I win as well and nothing short of giving your best is acceptable.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
Respect, dignity, and honesty are all part of my core values. Being reared in a very strong maternal environment as a male, I was taught that nothing matters if we have no integrity. We must maintain a therapeutic environment for our clients that promotes these values. Our clients should be introduced to an environment that is built on trust and honesty as they disclose some of their most private issues.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Mental health has reached the top tier of treatment service; it is now seen as any other illness. I am very motivated by the successful treatment outcomes that are facilitated by therapy. People are getting well from stress-related injuries, abuse, neglect, and chronic mental illness. I am excited to be part of the evolution of mental health care.
