About me

I have been a counselor for over 45 years. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Mental Health Service Provider with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. My specialty areas include: working with the adult children of dysfunctional families, addictions, PTSD, anxiety, depression, relationships, domestic violence, obsessive disorders, and schizophrenia. I have worked in several different church settings as a counselor and as a minister. I have been employed as a clinician in a state-run mental hospital, in an addiction treatment center, and in non-profit organizations,. I recently worked as the clinical manager over two locations of clinicians in a Christian private practice. I have been happily married to the same wife for 50 years. Life has often been difficult and confusing for me; therefore, clients do find me compassionate and non-judgmental. Perhaps you have issues that are overwhelming. I have discovered that it is never too late to change, to walk a more positive and happy life. Together, we can develop a plan and work through your stressful situations to recovery and healing. God has a plan and a purpose for each of us to live.
