About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with more than 40 years of experience as a pastor and chaplain, including 12 years of work as a licensed counselor. Therapy offers the opportunity for personal exploration, insight and change to work through difficult times toward a healthy adjustment. I will work at your pace to address the issues you are facing and promote an improved quality of life. I have worked with many people who have experienced grief, trauma, anxiety, troubled relationships and spiritual distress. In these times, a trained guide makes the difference in overcoming the obstacles and building a new life. I believe my breadth of experience, compassion, and insight will be useful in addressing your concerns.

I believe your spirituality provides a vital element in strengthening the work toward wellness. I work within each client’s unique spiritual perspective. My progressive Christian faith gives me hope in the love, goodness and redeeming power of God to work in every life.

I often use solution focused therapy, a proven therapeutic approach that encourages the client to discover answers from their own strengths and resources with assistance by the counselor. Seemingly intractable and chronic issues can be unlocked through collaborative efforts that finds solutions. Small steps soon become excellent progress toward a resilient well-being.

Another helpful way to work together is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, which focuses on both thought patterns and behaviors. Discovering new viewpoints, confronting actions that hinder our adjustment, and mastering new skills provide a powerful force to move us toward our goals. Hundreds of studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of this tool to bring positive change.

Seeking help requires great courage. I hope you will take a step forward to find a new path toward a better life. Let's work together on it!

Written by K.A. on May 26, 2019 after counseling with Larry for 2 months

Larry has provided me with real truthful counsel. He has helped me to get through the things that are going to help me grow versus the things that are going to keep in a place where I am feeling helpless. He’s been a non- biased perspective with a scriptural based view. He’s prompt, and makes himself available at various times. He’s like the friend you desire in real life.

He is a very diligent and skilled counselor and very much interested in helping his client actually fix there problems rather than just hearing them out.
