I firmly believe that the more informed you are, the better equipped you will be to make the best decisions in life. As a Clinical Mental Health Counselor, I have a passion for helping people by equipping them with the knowledge and skills needed to overcome a variety of mental health concerns. During our sessions together, we will work towards enhancing your understanding of presenting issues, as well as implementing different strategies and techniques that can help to mitigate symptoms. This will allow you to enjoy a higher quality of life. When working with me, clients can expect a safe and welcoming environment to practice new skills, and process various issues that may be holding you back from being the best version of yourself.
On a personal note:
Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids, as well as working on and driving my racecar. We have two dogs at home, Roxy and Tyson. Roxy is a registered and accredited service dog, but for the last two years she has spent her days working alongside me as a therapy dog, comforting clients and making new friends everywhere she goes. I also enjoy traveling, listening to music, playing guitar, and spending time with my friends.

Areas of Specialty:
My areas of specialty are working with Anxiety, Depression, and PTSD. As a former military dependent and combat veteran, I have a personal and unique understanding of the various challenges and issues that our military service members and their families face on a daily basis. This can look like: learning different techniques to improve self-talk, challenging unproductive beliefs or thought patterns, as well as specific interventions to combat the various symptoms that can result from complex trauma.
