“Our daily lives create transient circumstances in which we may find ourselves overwhelmed and seeking help outside of our familiar support system. I take a holistic approach in therapy, in that I offer support to individuals confronting these circumstances by recognizing their uniqueness and taking their life experiences into consideration for treatment purposes. I tend to utilize cognitive based techniques when working with individuals since one’s mood is directly related to his or her patterns of thought. People who are motivated to rework their thought pattern have the ability to overcome burdensome obstacles.

I served as a mental health provider in the United States Army Reserves from 1990 to 2016. I was deployed to Iraq in 2004 and in 2007 where I provided one on one and group counseling to members of the Armed Forces who face a vast array of challenges.

I feel my role as a therapist is to walk with my client while providing education and assistance in the management of depression, anxiety, and adjustment issues.”
