My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with extensive experience treating addictions, anxiety, obsessive thinking, phobias, depression, communication relationship issues, and life phase struggles. As a counselor, I am privileged to be able to share in my clients' journeys and to help them overcome difficulties. Years of practice have shown me that when faced with overwhelming struggles we must first acknowledge their existence, and only then can we reach for the help necessary to find achievable solutions. In the safety of a grounded, knowledgeable, and insight-oriented counseling experience I believe this is possible.
I believe in the importance of identifying problematic thinking & behaviors, building awareness, and developing successful behaviors that bring sustainable change. Mental health issues and addiction affect everything in a person's life: relationships, mind, body, and soul. If you are open to self-exploration you can find answers with help.
My education has a strong foundation in classical philosophy and literature. I am a married father of four children and incorporate this experience into my work with couples, parenting, and adolescence. I also have personal experience with disabilities that affords insight into overcoming the challenges that come with those hardships.
