Counseling & Psychotherapy

Welcome to my practice. I understand it can be difficult to ask for help for issues related to mental health. However, just by stopping by this website you have started the process of healing...good for you! Let me tell you a little about who I am, and the services I provide. 

I have been a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist since 1998.  I have provided direct mental health services in a number of capacities: as a child care worker in group homes for kids, as a case manager for adults living with serious and persistent mental illness, and as a family therapist for a non-profit organization to name just a few. My primary strength as a clinician is in being able to both sit with you in your suffering and in guiding you in your path toward wellness. 

From 2003-2017 I worked as a full-time sworn peace officer. During this period I maintained a small practice, focusing on working with first responders. Retired from law enforcement, I now provide classroom instruction to a number of populations (e.g., law enforcement, non-profit, and corporations) on the topics of emotional wellness, crisis de-escalation, and threat assessment). 

My practice now centers around cognitive-behavioral treatment for mood disorders (i.e., anxiety, depression), occupational stress, and couples work.
