Profile
“I get excited about seeing people overcome obstacles and transform into a better version of themselves.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Prior to becoming a therapist, I was an army officer. While in the military, my wife and I realized how much help we needed in our marriage. Upon getting discharged from the army after seven years, I decided to become a counselor. I figured if therapy helped me, it would help me help others. I really enjoy seeing people work through anxiety and depression. I get excited about seeing people overcome obstacles and transform into a better version of themselves. I feel honored to help individuals and couples obtain the life they want.
What should someone know about working with you?
I create a nonjudgmental and safe environment in which change can occur. Change happens at your pace, not mine. Once we identify the problem, we work together to develop solutions. I'm very solution-focused. I work well with motivated people who want to change rather than those who want to dwell on the problem or just vent about it.
If I choose to work with you, do I need to take a faith-based approach?
Not at all. I work with people from all walks of life. I offer that service because very few licensed clinicians do.
