My Approach to Helping
My approach is professional, sincere, kind, respectful, non-judgmental, honest, direct, balanced, fair, solution focused and results driven. With 19 years of successful experience as a therapist, coupled with 8 years in law enforcement, 17 years as a father and 20+ years as a husband, I am confidant that there are no limits to what we can accomplish together. I tailor my approach to the needs of each individual. Some clients require a more directive psycho-educational approach to therapy and for others therapy may be more of a process of self exploration, discovery and learning in which the client is supported, guided and empowered to successfully lead their own life.
